Center for Data Science and Applied Machine Learning(CDSAML) at PES  University focuses on

  • Image Processing, Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition using technologies from Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning and Deep learning.
  • Social Media Analytics using technologies from Statistical Machine Learning(SML), Natural Language Processing and Information Visualization.

The goal of CDSAML is to build systems and algorithms to extract knowledge, find patterns, generate insights and predictions from diverse data for various applications and visualization. The center conducts survey research, qualitative data collection, and data analysis.


  • Establishing and developing research relationships, both within the University and with external researchers, and not-for-profit agencies locally, nationally, and internationally; and
  • Designing and providing quality research by adhering to the highest ethical standards and professional best practices.


PES University ensures the best in faculty work in well equipped laboratories. Each research center is guided by a research center head with excellent academic credentials and a passion for research and development activities. The center head leads a research team comprising of research scholars and faculty members who work closely with the students. The key technologies are selected taking into account availability of expertise and potential industry support. The students get a chance to try their hands on the latest technologies and software tools.


Research enriches all aspects of teaching and learning in the curriculum. The list of current projects demonstrates the deep domain knowledge of the faculty and competence of the students.
