Establishment of HKUST Big Data Institute (BDI) effective 1 Feb 2016

Over the past years, we have established several key big data related initiatives. These includes the WeChat HKUST AI Center (WHAT LAB), Big-Data Bio-Intelligence Center (BDBI) and the MSC Program on Big Data Technology (BDT).

With the establishment of the BDI, we wish to include more research, knowledge transfer and educational programs under the Institute's umbrella. We hope to play a major role in the development of Big Data Technology and Data Science Programs in this region and in the world.
