题 目：The Role of Big Data in Data Science Education and Research（大数据在数据科学教育研究中的作用）
Data science deals with the processes and systems that are used to extract values from data and serve the society. Today, it has far reaching implications in many fields including both academic and industry research domains. This talk shares professional understanding of data and world digitalization, discusses the scope of data science (DS), and interpolates Big Data with reference to Artificial Intelligence (AI), through which we identify a range of critical issues that educators need to consider applying Big Data to data science education, and researchers need to attend on the Big Data integration.
