Cloud computing provides vast computing resources on-demand. It has become important due to the growth of 'big data': the large, complex, datasets now being created in almost all fields of activity, from healthcare to e-commerce. Unfortunately, due to a lack of tools and skilled people, the full potential of cloud computing for extracting knowledge from big data has rarely been achieved outside a few large companies. It is estimated that this shortage is costing UK industry millions of pounds each year. The CDT will fill this gap by producing the multi-disciplinary experts in the statistics and computing science required to extract knowledge from big data.
