“DEAPSnow”, a project by the Swiss Data Science Center (SDSC) and the WSL Institute for Snow and Avalanche Research SLF, developed an Artificial Intelligence (AI) to support avalanche forecasters in creating the avalanche bulletin. This product provides essential information about the prevailing snow and avalanche conditions in the Swiss Alps and the Jura.
With applications such as ChatGPT gaining traction, many questions are arising about Generative AI, the technology behind those tools, sometimes described as disruptive. How does it work, how can it support organizations today and what are the risks and opportunities associated with its use?
The International Committee of the Red Cross and the Swiss Data Science Center cooperate on a research project to better understand patterns of violence. This project is a concrete example of how data science can work out an effective model based on publicly available data, delivering a measurable humanitarian impact.
Data science helps deliver more precise and actionable information to policymakers and the population thanks to improved data quality. The Swiss Data Science Center collaborates with the Swiss Federal Office of Energy to push further digital innovation in the energy sector.
