The Interface Group at the Scientifica
The current issue of the
UZH magazine summarizes how central the topic of Big Data is in current research. Enormous amounts of data are being collected in various scientific projects, with our own Willy Kuo contributing to this increase in information. As a foretaste of our group’s part in the Zurich Science Days, Willy gave an interview on his work with very large computed tomography datasets.
