As a service provider, the Data Science Competence Center will provide services within the administration in the field of data science – “Data Science as a Service” (DSaaS).
We only offer our services to the Swiss public sector and administrations (Confederation, cantons and communes). In this framework, we limit ourselves to the topics of public policy and public governance in Switzerland.
Developing quality standards, guidelines on respecting data protection and basic infrastructures (“sandboxes”) for data science applications.
Consulting related to strategical, tactical and operational application of (for the federal administration) innovative data science methods and procedures (e.g. potential analysis of methods from advanced statistics, machine learning and the field of artificial intelligence).
Methodological support (coaching – “training on the job”) in executing relevant application-oriented externally procured or internal projects by Offices and/or transferring concrete results and findings from these projects into existing administrative processes (if required).
Complete execution (realisation) of relevant data science requests.
Application-oriented training sessions (training – “training off the job”) on data science methods, techniques and practices and the necessary (IT) technologies and tools.
We use data science and develop skills for the public good in the whole of Switzerland.
We work at the crossroads between data science and artificial intelligence. We build skills and apply the appropriate methods, techniques and practices to obtain a new understanding and to improve decision-making for the public good.
