Overview

As data accumulates across broad sectors of industry and academia we see a need for data scientists equipped with skills to assist with data-based decision making. For example, businesses are using data to determine insurance coverage, to make marketing decisions, to offer recommendations to customers, and to provide more effective health care. A famous example from academia is the determination of the Higgs Boson from simulated data with machine learning methods.

We offer a Masters in Data Science degree that covers basic and advanced essentials in statistical inference, machine learning, data visualization, data mining, and big data methods, all of which are key for a trained data scientist. In order to be selected for our program, we require a basic background in calculus, linear algebra, probability, computer programming, data structures, and algorithms. Our program is spread across 30 credits and contains projects involving big datasets, classification methods, variable selection, and deep learning to name a few.... [-]

Software plays a pivotal role in almost all aspects of our life, including transportation, communication, economy, and healthcare.

We put trust in software to accomplish complex and vital tasks for us, such as managing our finances, sharing our family and friends’ memories, diagnosing diseases, flying airplanes or driving cars. The complexity of these tasks, while becoming transparent to us, does not go away: It is distilled into the software our civilization depends on. Indeed, we are already in the era of ultra-large-scale software systems, composed by millions of code components interacting among them. In such a scenario, the software cannot be understood without its data and data becomes valuable only thanks to the software analyzing it. In other words, software engineering aims at managing the complexity of software, keeping it under control. Data engineering focuses instead on how to collect, store, and process huge amounts of data, that can be analyzed to gather insights and support decision-making activities. The master features courses taught by world’s leading researchers of the Software Institute at the USI Faculty of Informatics.... [-]

Introduction

We live in a data-driven world that’s generating huge volumes of information at ever-increasing rates, via social media, financial transactions, telecommunications, and even scientific discovery.

The emerging interdisciplinary field of data science combines areas of computer science with mathematical statistics and domain expertise to manage and analyze this data.

Incorporating statistical methods, data science puts a greater emphasis on the specialized computational skills required to manage and analyze big data from sources such as social media, sensors, mobile and transaction data.

Data scientists develop the capability to derive insight and opportunity from the vast repositories of data that many organizations collect. They help organizations in all sectors of the economy to make sense of these very large volumes of data; enabling businesses to gain a competitive edge, governments to deliver more targeted services, and research teams make new discoveries....
