About


The International Technology Alliance in Distributed Analytics and Information Science (DAIS ITA) is a joint US/UK research programme set up to unlock the potential of “big data” and “fast data” in front line situations, where people and computer systems need to collaborate in a coalition of multiple agencies. Recent advances in artificial intelligence, machine learning, and network science have greatly improved the capabilities of technology to assist coalitions working together in rapidly-changing situations, such as major disasters, to make people safer.

Crime & Security Research Institute (CSRI) Co-Director Prof Alun Preece is the UK academic lead for the DAIS ITA programme and heads the Distributed Analytics and Information Science (DAIS) research group, based at the CSRI.

The DAIS group brings together colleagues from Cardiff’s College of Engineering and Physical Sciences with specialist expertise in artificial intelligence, machine learning, social computing, signal processing, and distributed computing.
