HiDATA does not have a pre-defined research agenda, but the research challenges emerge bottom-up from this multi-disciplinary network. Helsinki Institute for Information Technology facilitates interaction between the AI and Data Science communities in Helsinki.
HiDATA facilitates the creation of bottom-up multidiscplinary research spearheads addressing crucial societal and industrial challenges.
One spearhead is Planet-scale environmental monitoring MegaSense.
