Recent years have witnessed a dramatic increase of data in many fields of science and engineering, due to the advancement of sensors, mobile devices, biotechnology, digital communication, and internet applications.
Big Data refers to data that is so large that it cannot be processed by using traditional applications. Although significant computer technology exists, new skills are needed to fully understand the power of Big Data. Very little targeted training is provided to address a growing skills gap in this area.
The Liverpool Centre for Doctoral Training for Innovation in Data Intensive Science (LIV.INNO) is an inclusive hub for training diverse cohorts of excellent students in data intensive science. The focus of the centre will be on addressing the data challenges presented by research in astronomy, nuclear, theoretical, particle and accelerator physics.
The Liverpool Virtual Seminar Series on Data Intensive Science will cover R&D outside of our centre’s core research areas and give an insight into cutting edge research in this area.
