Naoko Sakurai (Japan)


30 years have passed since Tokyo University of Information Sciences (abbreviated into TUIS) was established in Chiba next to Tokyo, whose diversified education around informatics had developed various kinds of system engineering human resources. In spring of 2017, TUIS has started new courses, let's say Data Science Laboratory based on mathematics and statistics for SE (System Engineer), who will have ability to equip adding skills and tastes for data analysis, especially in big data. Such statistical SE is deeply demanded in modern society because everything has to be decided depending on evidence from data. TUIS's new curriculum and its future vision of Data Science Laboratory will be introduced with actual education and assessment model.
