UCL Big Data Institute
The Institute is an innovation hub, based at UCL, founded with support from Elsevier. It tackles the challenges faced by researchers as they seek to forecast trends, synthesise information from thousands of research papers and show the potential societal impact of their research.
The research undertaken through the Big Data Institute forms part of the broader activities of the UCL Centre for Data Science. For UCL's data science-related news and events, visit the Centre for Data Science Website.
