Dr Edna Chan leads the Data Science and Analytics Centre (DSAC). Her team supports companies, especially small and medium enterprises (SMEs), in their data-driven digital transformation by leveraging artificial intelligence, data science and analytics through innovation, solutioning and training.

As a company’s digital transformation will need to progress in tandem with its workforce transformation, her team partners companies to identify suitable technologies to meet each company’s digital transformation aspirations and, at the same time, upskill its workforce to support the transformation.

Since the inception of the Centre in 2018, her team has supported more than 30 companies, many of which are from the Built Environment sector, in their digital transformation.
