The University of Bahrain recently held – over three continuous days and through the Microsoft Teams platform – the second week of the “Big Data” event, which comes within the activities of the Master’s Program in Big Data Science and Analysis, offered by the Colleges of Science and Information Technology at the University of Bahrain, in cooperation with Liverpool John Moores University in the Kingdom The United Nations, which recently adopted the program to be the first of its kind in the Kingdom of Bahrain and the Middle East region.
The Dean of the Faculty of Science, Prof. Dr. Muhammad Mustafa Al-Helou, and the Dean of the Faculty of Information Technology, Dr. Lamia Muhammad Al-Jasmi. Their pride in the achievements of the program, especially after the graduation of the first batch of students from the program. They also commended the effort exerted by the Program’s Administrative Committee under the direction of the Program Coordinator, Assistant Professor in the Mathematics Department at the College of Science at the University of Bahrain, Dr. Sawsan Juma’a Hilal, in facilitating students’ affairs and organizing activities that would enhance students’ skills and expand their knowledge in the field of science. Data, as a vital field with clear applications in several areas that serve the community.
On the first day of the event, two lectures were held on the uses of machine science, and they reviewed the latest developments in this field.
The Co-Director of the School of Computer Science and Mathematics and Head of the Applied Mathematics Department at Liverpool John Moores University Professor Dr. Paulo Lisboa gave a lecture entitled: “Interpretation of Models Used in Machine Science”. Meanwhile, Associate Professor of Data Science at Liverpool John Moores University, Dr. Evan Oller, presented a lecture entitled “Uses of Machine Science in the Health Sector”.
The second and third days of the event week were devoted to presenting a specialized workshop on ways to deal with irregular and flowing data using the mongoDB system, presented by Associate Professor from the Department of Applied Mathematics at Liverpool John Moores University, Dr. Sandra Ortega.
It is worth mentioning that the workshop took a purely practical nature, as it included extensive training, with the aim of refining and developing skills for dealing with this important type of data, and the workshop was well received by the graduate students participating in the event.
