Lecture series 2018/19: "What is Data Science?"

The purpose of our lecture series is to bring international scholars to the University of Vienna to give their perspective on the challenges and opportunities that data science presents to us. These international speakers will be complemented by local perspectives from the University of Vienna on how Data Science is being done here. The first year of our lecture series (2018/19) carries the theme of "What is Data Science?".
