Data science and cyber physical systems

Physicist Randy Sobie leads an international project to globally share massive volumes of data from one of the world's largest physics experiments.

Making sense of complexity

As our ability to gather information about the world and our lives grows, we need better tools to make sense of it all. Powerful computer systems offer new ways for researchers to organize data, find patterns and predict changes.

Data science enables our researchers to explore massively complex systems—such as climate change, ocean physics, galactic evolution, and the fleeting existence of new types of matter during high-energy collisions of subatomic particles.

UVic expertise in cyber physical systems includes advanced computing, networked control systems, energy systems, “smart oceans” technology, biostatistics, and assistive technologies and medical care monitoring.
