Our department was launched in September 2016 as the first step in the EU Labs program of T-Labs, Deutsche Telekom’s research, and development arm, in collaboration with the Technical University of Berlin. The department, as part of the Faculty of Informatics of Eötvös Loránd University in Budapest, is T-Labs’ first joint applied research Lab in Hungary.
The department is in co-operation with Magyar Telekom, the subsidiary company of Deutsche Telekom. The co-operation is concerned with research and development within joint applied research projects and assistance in data science-related events such as, for example, Data Hackathons, organized by Magyar Telekom.
Regarding teaching, with co-operation and help of other departments at the Faculty of Informatics of Eötvös Loránd University, we have developed a data science MSc. study program our department is coordinating. Dr. Tomáš Horváth, the head of our department, is coordinating the data science master program at the Budapest node of EIT Digital.
Our research interests concern smart data analytics, recommendation techniques, sensor-data analytics, text mining, automated machine learning approaches, and big data technologies. We are open to new and challenging ideas and welcome academic as well as industrial proposals for co-operation.
