Data Science eXchange (DSx)

The DSx moniker is a branding effort by the Perdana University School of Data Sciences (PU-SDS), Malaysia to inter-connect and streamline its various outreach activities for the broader data science and specifically bioinformatics community. This originated from the Data Science eXchange initiative (DSXi; launched by the School in 2017, which successfully kicked-off three key activities, a public lecture series, roadshows and a data science carnival. By 2019, the number of activities had expanded and the school decided to network them under the DSx umbrella, signifying the larger goal of the effort – exchange of data science.

Data Science is an interdisciplinary field that uses a combination of approaches to extract knowledge or insights from data. It is an exciting field with tremendous opportunities to improve the quality of life for people across the world. Data Science is applicable to a broad range of fields, such as medical/health sciences, natural sciences, and social sciences, among others. PU-SDS plans to help grow data science in Malaysia and the broader region through the various DSx outreach activities. We welcome you to join us in this journey.
