Big Data Analytics Center (BDAC)

The Big Data Analytics Center (BDAC) is an interdisciplinary center set up under the aegis of the School of Natural Sciences (SoNS), Shiv Nadar University (SNU) in 2014. ‘Big Data’ refers to the collection of data sets whose scale, diversity and complexity require new architecture, techniques, algorithms and analysis to manage it, and extract value and hidden knowledge from it. Use of information has become central for the survival and development of the human race.

The Big Data Analytics Center (BDAC) is an interdisciplinary center set up under the aegis of the School of Natural Sciences (SoNS), Shiv Nadar University in 2014. ‘Big Data’ refers to the collection of data sets whose scale, diversity and complexity require new architecture, techniques, algorithms and analysis to manage it, and extract value and hidden knowledge from it. Use of information has become central to the survival and development of the human race. Today we experience a true deluge of data which record and shape our lives, ranging from large global issues such as climate change to the smallest local problem such as controlling a thermostat. The critical screening and processing of Big Data has become a world-wide effort, requiring academic attention from diverse disciplines. The challenge is to develop theoretical and innovative scientific and technological solutions to cater to the needs of the industry, the society and the environment.

The focus of the Center is to understand the uncertainty and the study of decision making in the face of uncertainty using the scientific methods which involves different domains of mathematics/physics, statistics, computer science and to examine the value and business utility of such developed tools and algorithms in different application areas of management, economics, healthcare and other technological areas. The Center aspires to become a technical and scientific research hub with the growing demands in the different directions of life with varying requirements in the domain of data science.
