Welcome to the Laboratory for Data Science and Analytics

The LDSA is a central hub of applied data-intensive interdisciplinary analytical research at South Asian University, New Delhi, India. Housed at the Department of Computer Science, LDSA engages affiliated faculty from both Indian and foreign universities to execute cutting edge research to address current challenges and opportunities related to Data Science and Analytics. To advance research, LDSA employs postdoctoral fellows, PhD students in Data Science and Analytics, as well as masters students from affiliated programs in relevant disciplines. The LDSA offers a range of options for both organizations and individuals to get involved, including students mentoring programs, faculty development programs, summer training/workshops, networking events, and more.

The research team at LDSA focuses on applying Data Mining, Machine Learning, and Network Analysis to real-world problems in society and industry. We work on developing novel Data Analytics and Machine Learning techniques, especially for applications in text mining, social network analysis, figurative language detection, sentiment analysis & emotion detection, health informatics, and data-driven cybersecurity. A common pattern in our research is to curate and analyze large-scale data using data mining and machine learning techniques to glean actionable patterns for enabling business intelligence, data-driven economy, and open source intelligence.

LDSA aims to contribute to a number of open-source, open-science, and open-data-resource communities in support of academic research. If you are interested in learning and working on Applied Machine Learning and Complex Networks Analysis, then consider joining our group. Industry, government, and organizations can partner with us to find solutions to their data-centric problems.
