Speaker: Professor Stephane Bordas (Cardiff University)

Data Science is one of today’s main buzzwords be it in business, industrial or academic settings. Machine learning, experimental design, data-driven modelling are all, undoubtedly, rising disciplines judging by the soaring number of research papers and patents appearing each year. So “What makes Data Science different?” In this lecture, Professor Bordas gives a multi-faceted view on this question, considering engineering and statistics perspectives and discussing the connection between Data Science and Computational Science.
