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.
