Interested in the study of algorithms for the problems of continuous mathematics, and in the numerical simulation of physical processes.
The Foundations of data science lie in methodology for the analysis, interpretation and organisation of complex data. Our schools of Mathematics and Computer Science carry out world-class research in computational statistics, machine learning, visual computing, advanced interfaces and information management. Another important area of data science research is around confidentiality and privacy, which are a particular focus of our the Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research. Underpinning these developments is the requirement for powerful, scalable and reliable algorithms and architectures.
