The members of the ENGINE Centre decided to change the name of the Centre into “ENGINE – The European Centre for Data Science” in order to make it wider and open for new research groups.
Three experts appointed by the European Commission visited the ENGINE Centre at the beginning of November 2016: 1. Prof. Bogdan Gabrys, Chair of Computational Intelligence, Faculty of Science and Technology, Bournemouth University, UK 2. Prof. Natasa Milic-Frayling, Chair of Data Science, School of Data Science, University of Nottingham, UK 3.
A researcher from the ENGINE Center – Piotr Szymanski is working – together with a team of students (Mateusz Dryzek, Radek Czemerys, Michał Żonieruk and Piotr Oleszczyk) – on the analysis of public transport in Wroclaw. Starting at the beginning of this year the team collected data from the position monitoring system
Nine young and experienced scientists employed in the ENGINE centre have recently received research grants for their teams from The Polish National Science Centre. (1) four are for the experienced reserchers (Opus programme), Principal Investigators: Przemyslaw Kazienko (ENGINE coordinator), Bogdan Cyganek (recruited researcher), Jaroslaw Jankowski (recruited researcher), and Miroslaw Klinkowski
Morzy Mikołaj, Kajdanowicz Tomasz and Boleslaw Szymanski published an article entitled “Complex networks and Benford’s distribution“. Many collections of numbers do not have a uniform distribution of the leading digit, but conform to a very particular pattern known as Benford’s distribution. This distribution has been found in numerous areas such as
The President of the Republic of Poland upon a motion of the Central Commission for Academic Degrees and Titles conferred a life-time academic title of Professor of Technical Sciences on Przemysław Kazienko, the ENGINE coordinator.
