Institute for Data Industry
Welcome to Visit us!
Learn from world-changing thinkers and innovators in both academic and industrial circles of big data
Big data will be a source of new economic value and innovation. More specifically, by mining data resources and extracting useful information, seemingly “inexhaustible” data innovations would be emerging. To respectively endow these data innovations with a business model, namely industrialization, which will form a strategic emerging industry that is strong enough to influence the world economy, we named it “data industry”.
The Data Industry is a reversion, derivation, and upgrading of the information industry that touches nearly every aspect of modern life.
Our proposal of constructing Fudan's institute for data industry is to help create new direct & indirect jobs by accelerating the diffusion of research related to data innovations into practice. In September 2013, we proudly announced its establishment with a RMB 3 million seed funding.
We have two main partners: InfinityData Investment Co., Ltd. (link) and Shanghai Key Laboratory of Data Science, Fudan University (link).
InfinityData helped to ensure our initial fund in 2013, and will provide a sustainable flow of financial support in the following years as its commitment.
We do our basic research work together with Key Laboratory of Data Science.
We are open to all partnership suggestions that allow us to achieve our main goals and deliver our mission.
