Smart Data

Smart Data

The amount of digital information keeps growing exponentially. However, this so called 'big data' is just a whole pile of data. On Campus Groningen we turn big data into smart data. This means getting actionable and valuable insights from the data. We do this by filtering noise, structuring the data, employing artificial intelligence and performing advanced analytics.

On Campus we gather and process huge amounts of data, such as measurements from our world-leading astronomy projects, customer data from large multinationals, genetic material from our biobanking cohorts and diagnostics data from smart factories. Companies, including our outstanding IT start-up scène, work on new business models, products and services based on such data streams. Through our Data Science and Systems Complexity Center, 5G Fieldlab, Internet-of-Things Network, Center for Information Technologies and the European Research Center for Exascale Technology (ERCET) we mean to stay at the forefront of smart data research and business.
