First Interdisciplinary lab at Prince Sultan University The Artificial Intelligence and Data Analytics (AIDA) lab will be the first interdisciplinary lab at Prince Sultan University (PSU). It would open new opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration which is strongly encouraged as part of university's strategy for 2030. The AI &Data Analytics research lab aims to provide high quality, cutting-edge research contributions by unifying the fields of statistics, data analysis, machine learning and artificial intelligence in order to understand and analyze actual phenomena with data. The research produced would contribute in enhancing PSU's visibility and promote interdisciplinary research incorporating local and international partnerships. The lab will facilitate professional trainings, workshops and conferences in-house and in cooperation with other institutes, companies or research centers to provide the training to PSU members and society. Professional certificates can be offered for interested students. The following training would be arranged since they are the most appealing for Data Science professionals. The decisive objective is to contribute in the Kingdom 2030 initiatives for the strategic objectives of health sector, education field and energy sector to support the vibrant digitized society.
