Centre for Research in Data Science


Data Science is a dynamic and fast-growing field at the interface of Statistics and Computer Science. It is an interdisciplinary field to get knowledge and various insights from data. The Data Science Research Group at Karachi Campus of National University of Computer and Emerging Sciences addresses the challenges associated with getting information from homogenous and heterogeneous data. Research group mainly focus on machine learning and information processing techniques for data analysis with main applications in writer identification, face recognition, cancer classification, multi-label classification, social media data analysis and information visualization. Data Science is going to become of the important discipline in Computer Science. The research group will focus on cutting edge development in this field.
