The establishment of Research Institute of Big Data Analytics through the IBM University Relations programme will lead to numerous benefits and can provide synergistic momentum for XJTLU to build its research and teaching expertise in an area of growing importance.
The Institute aims to increase the number of professionals innovating with big data in Suzhou Industrial Park. It works with institutions and companies (especially with Suzhou International Science-Park Data Centre) to train the next generation of academics and data-savvy professionals on cloud and big data technology. It also works together with IBM and SISDC to conduct research workshops and seminars to train academics and increase local professionals’ understanding in data science in order to build SIP’s capabilities in this area.
As SIP government is looking to innovate in the area of data science and analytics, RIBDA offers resources to help businesses modernise legacy infrastructure by leveraging big data technology and developing new big data applications.
