The Data Science group is a section of the Institute for Computing and Information Sciences at the Radboud University Nijmegen. Our group, headed by Prof. Djoerd Hiemstra, consists of about 50 to 60 researchers.
We develop theory and methods for scalable machine learning and information retrieval to analyze big data and address challenging problems in science and society. We are involved in various projects with other groups, both within and outside the Radboud University. Research funding mainly comes from NWO, TTW, and the EU.
We are part of the Radboud AI initiative.
Harrie Oosterhuis was part of the organization of the 2nd edition of the CONSEQUENCES workshop at the 2023 ACM RecSys conference, speakers at the workshop included Prof. Micheal I. Jordan from Berkeley and dr. Minmin Chen from Google. More information at: https://sites.google.com/view/consequences2023/home .
