Following on the success of the MSc programme, City is set to introduce a four-year undergraduate MSci Data Science degree in October 2017.
The rapid digitisation of society has led to an unprecedented deluge of data. In 1992, an estimated 100GB of data was generated every day. By 2015, a staggering 2.5 quintillion bytes of data was created on a daily basis. This enormous amount of data is produced on devices such as smartphones and smartwatches, generated by social media activities or on the web, through sophisticated imaging devices in genomics and medicine, through sensors and cameras - and travel cards in our “smart” cities.
