Welcome to CaRDS : Computation and Research in Data Science

CaRDS is a research institute established in 2015 to provide faculty and students at ETSU with the resources to support and advance their knowledge and skills in the emerging field of Data Science.

What is Data Science?

~It is the science of finding information in Big Data.

~It is the explorations of large and disparate data sets using artificial intelligence (machine learning) guided by mathematical and statistical principles... and more! Data science is needed in every area of research, from molecular biology (data generated by sequencing technology for example) to marketing (data generated by you).

See the video by IMB about Watson, for example. Or check out Cisco's internet of Everything here and there.
