The innovation center for data science (ICDS) is a network platform consisting of academic, industrial, and business collaborates that forms a data science and AI ecosystem in Khorasan-e-Razavi in Iran.
ICDS facilitates the national and international growth of this ecosystem. ICDS connects industry and academia by creating a data-type bridge between knowledge-based and academic institutions with business and industry and provides a platform for collaboration in data science and AI.
In November 2021, this center started its activities by holding meetups on various topics in data science and AI in the city of Mashhad. The purpose of meetups, in addition to familiarizing the audience with new algorithms and methods in the scientific world and their application in industry, is to create a community and network of data science and AI in Mashhad. Thus, the center gathers audiences from the worlds of science (students, university professors) and industry in a shared friendly environment to share knowledge and experience.
Government and non-governmental companies, industries, and institutions can support this data science and AI network as one of the ICDS partners.
