Oxford University and Emirates have collaborated to found a new Data Science Lab in which will have experts from around the University use cutting-edge analysis to help the airline better manage Big Data and enhance services to airline passengers.
The new Lab will bring together researchers from at least five departments within the University, including the Mathematical Institute, the Oxford Internet Institute and the Departments of Engineering Science, Computer Science and Statistics.
Visiting Fellows from Emirates will work with the academics to manage the airline’s ever-growing datasets, better understand the airline’s processes and map customer preferences in greater detail.
Based on the learnings from this data analysis, Emirates will create new products and services, better suited to the evolving needs of its passengers.
Attendees at the 13th Aviation Festival in London will get a first look at how the Oxford-Emirates data science lab will disrupt the industry.
Experts from Oxford University will contribute insights on how they use cutting-edge analysis to help make Emirates more efficient and customer-focused.
The Oxford-Emirates Data Science-Lab is part of this year’s On-Floor Innovation Theatre at the 13th Aviation Festival. A show guide to view the free on-floor programme can be dowloaded here.
Flight Chic will be on-site reporting from the event from 8-9 September.
Last year’s event was invaluable and this year’s agenda is can’t-miss.
