Module 1: Information technology

An increasing number of applications involving large data volumes are entering the marketplace, raising efficiency levels and simplifying processes. More basic research on big data is needed, however. Although such research does not generate results that are immediately applicable, in the long term it lays the groundwork for various applications. Among other tasks, the projects in module 1 will develop new data analysis procedures and techniques to help solve the problems faced by big data infrastructures such as analysis centres.
