Making Big Data Count
The amount of data in the world is increasing at a breakneck pace. In 10 to 20 years, how will we manage all of this information? Traditional data analysis methods that have been used for decades can no longer provide the answers. A new field of research—data science—has emerged to contend with the challenge. Also known as Big Data, its goal is to take the mountains of digital information being generated and determine how best to store, mine, analyze, share and secure it.
Leveraging its interdisciplinary research culture, Tel Aviv University has become a hub of collaborative research in this field. Over 10% of all researchers on campus are involved in data science, divided into two main groups: those who invent the methods (computer scientists, statisticians and applied mathematicians) and those who apply them (researchers in biomedicine, humanities and social sciences). Their work will underpin future advances in cybersecurity, business, health, transportation, communication and education in Israel.
Supporting TAU’s trailblazing work in data science will appeal to donors who believe in the power of information technology to promote economic growth and enhance quality of life.
