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.
