The Data Science Intensive Program challenges 16 participants to tackle four consecutive real-world data science projects in teams. The DSI is coordinated by the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) South Africa.


The main goal of the DSI is to ensure that participants who successfully complete the program are able to add value to any data science team in the world. As a result, the emphasis of the program is on practical skills in machine learning, big data and AI. Participants come from seven different African countries and comprise many AIMS alumni .

The program is coordinated by Prof. Bruce Bassett. Dr Shankar Argawal, a postdoctoral fellow and Mr Emmanuel Dufourq, a PhD student in the AIMS South Africa Research Centre are the programme's tutors.

The DSI is primarily funded by the SA-DISCnet grant which is a collaborative data science training network between AIMS South Africa and universities in southern UK.
