We only see the amount of available data increasing, due to developments such as the internet of things, smart sensors and social networks. Advanced algorithms are needed to transform this growing amount of data into useful insights, for example, for new research questions and products. In this regard,
data science is crucial for contributing to solutions to societal issues. This could include the development of new medical treatments, sustainable solutions for generating electricity, as well as improvements in online privacy and security.
Michel Dumontier (1975) previously worked at the renowned Stanford Center for Biomedical Informatics Research at Stanford University. Dumontier has exceptional research expertise in data science. He is the host of the traditional UM Star Lecture in Düsseldorf.
