UiO Data Science is a community for researchers and users of data science. While most of the research activity takes place at the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Science, other faculties, departments, centres and projects are actively involved.
The purpose of these web pages is to collect information on data science related activities, research, courses and competence at the University of Oslo. The pages are intended for students and researchers, as well as for a general audience interested in the creation of understanding and value from large and complex data in public and private sector.
The University of Oslo offers many opportunities for those seeking an education and career in Data Science. We offer a wide selection of topics in Data Science and related disciplines.
In the bachelor program Mathematics with informatics there is a specialisation in Data Sciencem. We also offer a master program in Data Science.
The DataScience@UiO Advisory Service is a service available to students and staff engaged in research at the University of Oslo. We provide free, face-to-face advice sessions to help you tackle your data science problems.
The Advisory Service is provided by the DataScience@UiO Innovation Cluster in collaboration with BigInsight and SIRIUS. Our group of advisors consists of PhD Research Fellows from DataScience@UiO and senior research staff from BigInsight and SIRIUS.

SIRIUS has an important role to play in data science
Mar. 1, 2018 12:19 PM
Successful data science requires a mixture of statistics, computer science and domain knowledge. In DataScience@UiO, we bridge the first of these gaps by bringing statisticians and computer scientists from the Factulty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences together, and the other by bringing in industry-heavy research centers such as BigInsight and SIRIUS. In this blog-post, I want to say something about why I believe SIRIUS has a very important role to play in the current and future data science engagement at the University of Oslo.
