About

       This Division has been established in 2019 under the leadership of Director Prof. G N Sastry, the Advanced Computation and Data Sciences Division is located in the S S Bhatnagar Building within the official campus of CSIR-NEIST, Jorhat. Its primary focus is directed towards accomplishing the following scope:

  • Documentation, digitization, deposition of data and analyse this data with Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence applications.
  • To conduct fundamental and applied research in Computational Modelling and Data Science Spanning.
  • To facilitate various R&D Divisions in the Institute to perform Big data analysis by adopting contemporary scientific and technological advances.

Vision & Mandate

Vision


       Data sciences has emerged as a critical technology for all basic and translational research endeavours. The abundance of natural wealth, bio-diversity, geo-diversity can be put to great use for the development of the North East region in particular and nation in general by adopting contemporary scientific and technological advances. CSIR-NEIST undertakes the path of documentation, digitization, deposition of data and analyse this data with Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence applications, with outcomes leading to societal benefit.

Mandate


       The division’s mandate is to conduct fundamental and applied research in Computational Modelling and Data Science Spanning. The division is expected to facilitate various R&D Divisions viz. Geosciences, Chemical Sciences, Materials Sciences, Biological Sciences and Engineering Sciences to perform big data analysis by adopting contemporary scientific and technological advances. Also it will undertake the path of documentation, digitization, deposition of data and subject this data for Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence applications..
