The ZHAW Data Science Laboratory

Datalab, the Data Science Laboratory at Zurich University of Applied Sciences, is the place to transform deep data science know how into innovative research projects and vibrant teaching in Switzerland. We are a strongly interdisciplinary group with firm roots in computer science and statistics. Have a look at our team to find out who and what we are.

Goals

We are convinced that doing data science in all its facets is the sexiest profession one can pursue in all of information technology (and probably beyond…). We have a passion for our subject and love to see it transformed into either of

  • business value through innovative research projects, aiming mainly (but not exclusively) at Swiss SMEs
  • new data scientists through passionate teaching of data science foundations and advanced topics for the education of students towards being researchers as well as practitioners.

Our goal is to be a nationally leading and internationally recognized center of excellence for research, teaching and services in the area of data science. The Datalab closely cooperates with industry, enabling innovation and technology transfer.

In order to reach these goals, we foster interdisciplinary collaboration and exchange of ideas between our members and associates.
