Our mission is to develop world-class data science talent and technology within the Amsterdam region. We are the focal point for research, innovation and education.

Data quantity is continually increasing and the information derived from this has become a main driving force for scientific discovery and innovation. We can only fully employ these vast amounts of data if we have the methodologies to store and process it and turn it into valuable and accessible information. Society is becoming increasingly reliant on data and the tools and methods to acquire and analyse it. Important data sources are only starting to be explored, e.g. from social media, online scientific literature, video material, click and interaction patterns, financial transactions, customer behaviour, sensors and scientific instrumentation. The ability to utilise data will aid government efficiency, improve healthcare quality, steer innovation in business, promote more effective law enforcement, and catalyse new scientific discoveries.
