The Sirris Data and AI Competence Lab (EluciDATA Lab) 'Data Innovation beyond the Hype' mastercourse provides pragmatic and industry-oriented training modules that address the need for companies to innovate their products, services or technology based on the use of data. It will become possible for these companies, for example to acquire new insights from experimental data, to profile products and customers, optimise production processes, predict machine failure and set up data-oriented start-ups.

The mastercourse cycle explains the various facets of data innovation in a number of modules: it covers the data-science workflow in general, as well as specific topics with a focus on industrial applications of data science and artificial intelligence.  

Module - The importance of data exploration and hypothesis building - 5 and 8 October 2021, 9:30 - 12:00 (online)

A clear picture of the business opportunities and a library of intelligent algorithms are not enough to develop a data-driven solution. A thorough understanding of the quality of the available data and the interesting information it contains is equally important in order to derive viable working hypotheses about the underlying mechanisms of the problem under investigation. In this module, various approaches to such data exploration are discussed, with a particular focus on numerical and visual techniques.


The working language for each module is English.

Cost per module: EUR 575

Thanks to the support of VLAIO (Industriepartnerschap), companies located in Flanders pay only 575 euro for 2 modules, if they actually book and follow at least 2 modules. This cannot be cumulated with the KMO-portefeuille.

If you are a Flemish SME you can also make use of the KMO-portefeuille (the KMO-portefeuille should be requested at latest 14 days after the seminar has taken place - if not, your application will be refused).  (Sirris accreditation no: DV.O105154).
