The new Wits Institute of Data Science will not only provide a “big data” service to many other academic disciplines at Wits University. It will also contribute to the body of academic knowledge in this field. The Institute will be built on the recognition that, in today’s world, collaboration is the most effective way to generate meaningful knowledge. The Institute will seek partnerships locally and globally with universities, governments, corporates and other stakeholders.
