The Behavioural Data Science Incubator (BDSI) has started. The aim of BDSI is to spark innovation and collaboration in data science that involves human behaviour: to accelerate and inspire data-driven research within BMS that uses statistical models, machine learning, or simulation techniques.
BDSI will support researchers and promote good research practices in all steps of the research cycle:
- data gathering and governance,
- model building, training, and validation,
- visualization and reporting
BDSI will organise courses, workshops and networking events on these topics, and provide training in the R and Python programming languages on all skill levels. We support the writing of research grants. By building a strong community, we aim to connect researchers in BMS with each other, with other UT research groups, and the outside world.
