Data Science and Smart Services (DS3)

The Data Science and Smart Services (DS3) master specialization connects the important fields of data science and smart services via information systems. In this master specialization you will get acquainted with and work on the following topics: big data, data analytics, information inference, context-aware applications, smart services. With data science, one learns how to dig for value in data by analyzing various data sources. With service engineering, one learns how to design services that effectively use system capabilities to satisfy user needs and requirements. Information systems that can use the results of data science to get more value out of data and become context-aware may turn traditional services into smart services. We already see applications of this in various domains such as pervasive health, well-being, intelligent transportation, logistics, and business intelligence.
