The goal of the Data Science Hub (DSH), located at the San Diego Supercomputer Center (SDSC) at University of California San Diego, is to catalyze interdisciplinary data science collaborations between university faculty, researchers, industry, and government.

Specific objectives of the DSH include:

  • Serving as a community hub for collective, lasting innovation in data science research and expertise.
  • Leading innovative solutions and applications for data-driven research, analytics, and development.
  • Creating top of the line computing and data platforms for the data science community.
  • Educating and establishing a modern data science workforce that can help drive innovation in public and private organizations.
  • Connecting data science research initiatives with entrepreneurial ventures and potential industry commercialization.

SDSC’s DSH is a community hub where experts from SDSC and other units of the university can apply their experience in building and participating in collaborative, multi-disciplinary data science teams to help provide solutions to regional, national, and global challenges, including smart cities, precision medicine, advanced manufacturing, and data center automation.

The DSH affiliates are principally Ph.D.-level researchers experienced in developing computational platforms as well as in data engineering and analytical techniques, including but not limited to:

  • Data modeling and integration
  • Data engineering and management
  • Machine learning and graph analytics
  • Performance modeling for ‘big data’ platforms and workloads
  • Dashboard design for data visualization
  • Scalable, high-performance analytics
  • Process mining and management
  • Scientific visualization
  • Advanced computing architectures
  • Bridging the gap between exploration, scalability, and deployment
