The onset of big data has led to an explosion of datasets with a far more complex structure and beyond standard physics. In this program, we will provide new theoretical and computational tools to tackle this challenge within the physicist mindset.

The program intends to build an academic and professional figure that combines advanced knowledge in the field of Physics with a high-level training in Data Science.

The modeling and the theoretical interpretation of complex natural phenomena from large amounts of data are at the core of the research in Physics. The Big Data revolution presents in this sense the challenges and opportunities for the physicist of today. In addition to the figure of Data Scientist, specialized purely in the analysis of large amounts of data, it is increasingly clear the need to also train figures able to develop the methods and techniques that are fundamental for such analysis - in this sense we named the program of Physics of the Data. Training in Physics, Mathematics and Computation is increasingly necessary to generate such innovation and development. The program will thus train a new generation of physicists, which we could define as "data physicists", equipped with tools that will allow them to face the challenges that the digital revolution has brought in our society .
