How do we unleash the potential of data to enrich the lives of people, make cities smarter and add value to business? At the Business Intelligence & Smart Services (BISS) Institute we are driven to co-create data-driven solutions and smart services that make the world a little better every day.
We are a centre of excellence operated jointly by Maastricht University, Zuyd University of Applied Sciences, and the Open University of the Netherlands. It is our goal to connect students, researchers and professionals to instigate and inspire new data driven projects and ideas. To fuel innovation, facilitate fundamental and applied research, share knowledge and educate both students and professionals.
By using digital data in combination with a range of technologies in data analytics and data visualisation we want to develop innovative services with socioeconomic impact.
We focus on three areas of expertise: smart interaction, smart support and smart business models. Please browse through our website to learn more about current research and co-creation projects, trainings and events.
Interpersonal or human/machine information exchange that incorporates some form of artificial intelligence, data analysis or data visualisation.
The art to support individuals and organizations in decision making and daily activities, using intelligent, hybrid human/machine collaboration systems.
Models of companies that provide Smart Services, which describe the interrelated architectural, co-operational and financial arrangements of organizations.
Current projects have a main focus on finance, health and citizenship, but we are open to challenges from other sectors. Please contact BISS.
We believe in co-creation as the way forward in both science and business. Whether the result is a published scientific article, a business start-up or both; we are constantly developing new insights and committed to share this knowledge with students and professionals alike.
We are located at the Brightlands Smart Services Campus and an integral part of the larger ecosystem that is flourishing here. Over 40 companies are active in-house and many more participate in different projects, teaming up with researchers and students whenever co-operation adds value. Among other facilities we run a fully operational Service Innovation lab and a separate Data Experience lab. The large Service Innovation lab has got flexible furniture to make it usable for various purposes (workshops, brainstorms seminars, student projects and many more). The Data Experience lab is mainly used for the development of data visualization applications. When looking for a fully equipped location in a data science environment, please contact us.
One of many collaboration programs we participate in is Techruption. Since the start of Techruption program in late 2016, BISS became in charge for the AI line. Please find out more about artificial intelligence projects at the Techruption site.
Every groundbreaking idea starts with a single question. Please get in touch and ask us anything at all. Who knows here it will end!
