DataScience @ UB research group responds to the challenges facing the organizations originated by the massive generation of data, and we do so from the technological, scientific and social point of view. We are specialists in data science, a key discipline in the digital transformation that involves generating and interpreting information on a large scale. And we approach it both from its mathematical and algorithmic, as well as methodological. Thus, we provide knowledge and predictive and analytical tools, in addition to saving time, money and resources.
What is Data Science Grup
GCD@UB is made up of several University of Barcelona research groups. It was created in order to combine synergies with a view to undertaking technology transfer projects in the field of data science. The following groups, which are part of the faculties of Mathematics and Physics
Invalcor is a center specialized in the functional assessment of the locomotor system that by means of advanced technology objective aspects such as the measure of the mobility, strength, power, resistance, or fatigue of a damaged body region. The company is interested in designing a prediction system that, based on the historical data of its activity, attends the diagnosis work to doctors.
This project consisted of the development of a tool for learning about the different relationships between the members of an organisation and their areas of work. The group-level analysis provides a real-time diagnosis and makes it possible to take actions to improve and streamline processes.
Image search engines receive huge volumes of images every day, but very few of these have any impact on the internet. Of course, the aesthetics and technique of images are key to ensuring they have an impact on the internet and are not overlooked.
