Ten of Korea's universities, including Hanyang University, have created the Citizen Data Scientist (CDS) Big Data University Coalition to foster talented individuals in the field of big data. The CDS is for people that have a specific field and also possess big data processing skills. △Dankook University △Daejeon University △Dong-A △Yonsei University (Wonju) △Chonnam National University △Jeonju University △Jeju National University △Chosun University △Hanyang University and △Hoseo University have come together to form the coalition.
Big data and data analysis are fields that are often considered to be abstract and difficult, with universities turning out fewer experts than are demanded by industries. The CDS Big Data University Coalition was established to solve this problem, to foster big data experts that businesses need through big data education that anyone can approach, analyze, and utilize.
The CDS Big Data University Coalition will provide a big data education program to university students that will last two months starting in July, with plans to hold a competition in October. The coalition decided to extend their target subjects to employees of businesses along with elementary, middle school, and high school students. It will also carry out a big data-based platform project that fits the industrial environment of local societies, through the help of representative universities around the 4 districts of Korea. In the end, it aims to execute employment and business startup support projects for university students using newly created business models.
The first president of the CDS Big Data University Coalition, Jeon Byong-hun Hanyang University LINC+ Project Leader (Professor of the Department of Earth Resources and Environmental Engineering), mentioned that "Big data education and cultivating talented individuals cannot be carried out by a single university," and added that "the CDS Big Data University Coalition will take the leading role in the development of Korea."
