The Unit for Data Science and Analytics at ASU Library connects researchers university-wide to pursue research that engages machine learning, data analytics, visual storytelling, network analysis, and text and data mining. Working with both students and faculty, we connect a wide variety of experts to the methods and technologies of data science. Our collaborators and students encompass a growing community of practitioners and partners from a diversity of fields: art history, engineering, language and literature, biology, urban planning, economics, business, and more.

What is data science?

ASU Library Data Science Director Michael Simeone and Data Scientist David Little introduce students, faculty, and staff to data science - the critical analysis and visualization of big data to uncover meaningful knowledge and insights.
