Data Intelligence Systems Lab (DISL)


Mission Statement

DISL’s interests are in the areas of data science and machine learning, with particular focus on biomedical modelling. Our research activities include both theoretical and applied studies aimed at developing prediction models of future health and life aided by technology and data intelligence. Furthermore, we are innovating research in data science by hybridizing theory-based approaches with hypothesis-free, bottom-up data mining. We are committed to fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion both through research, education and scholarly activities. DISL’s vision is pursuing ideas in ‘humanly ethical’ artificial intelligence for health and beyond, working to ameliorate recent discomforting results in social and welfare modelling, as “biased algorithms are everywhere, and no one seems to care”.
