This is how Switzerland sets targets for the use of data science

In future, the Confederation will use big data more specifically to support the government and the administration in their work

On 2 December 2022, the Federal Council of the Swiss Confederation adopted the strategy on Data Science and has given various assignments.
Numerous offices of the Federal Administration use data science applications, for example to calculate developments in passenger transport or to improve storm forecasts.
But the potential for use is still large.
The Federal Council therefore intends to promote the use of Data Science for the benefit of the common good and in support of public policies.
To this end, it has set up the Competence Center for Data Science (DSCC), which has been making its expertise available to the administrative units of the federal government, the cantons and the communes since January 2021.

So data science has taken the field against poverty

Data science pursues problem solving based on Big Data
Data science is a rigorous and documented process of data-driven problem solving and continuous improvement

From January 2021 also a Data Science Strategy (DSStB)

Secondly, it approved a Data Science Strategy (DSStB), which shows how the Federal Administration should use the Data Science in the future, what goals are you pursuing by applying it and what measures are necessary to ensure that it is used in a faster, more targeted and coordinated manner.
Data Science (or "data science" in English) is an interdisciplinary science.
In addition to statistics, it also interfaces with areas such as data management, engineering, machine learning, artificial intelligence, optimization or data visualization.

The Confederation lays the foundations for a "data policy"

The aim of the new decisions is a coordinated use of "data science"

The heart of the strategy is the coordinated use of "Data Science".
In particular, there is a need to raise awareness and improve skills in data science applications in the Federal Administration.
There is also a need to increase the accessibility and availability of data science tools and platforms.
Furthermore, the Federal Council intends to exploit potential synergies and expand cooperation with the cantonal and municipal administrations, the scientific community, civil society and the private sector, as well as the international exchange of experience.
The strategy helps to clarify the way in which the Administration uses "Data Science".
For example, it allows you to formulate rules of conduct regarding the application of "Data Science" by federal administrative units.
The Federal Administration is playing a role model in the responsible use of data science.

So the Competence Center for Data Science in Switzerland
The Competence Center for Data Science (DSCC) in the data science landscape of the Swiss public sector is in contact with the Competence Network for Artificial Intelligence (CNAI)

Use of already existing digitization structures, such as the DSCC and the CNAI

The implementation of the strategy is coordinated with the federal digitization strategy 2020–2023 and the federal data policy as well as with the work of the DSCC and the AI Skills Network (CNAI).
Its further development takes place through the existing federal bodies responsible for digitization.

From the Federal Statistical Office to the Federal Institutes of Technology sector the assignments

Simultaneously with the adoption of the strategy, the Federal Council assigned various tasks.
For example, theFederal Statistical Office (FSO), together with other departments and the ETH sector, will have to prepare, among other things, a report on where "Data Science" can be applied in the course of the political process.
In addition, a code for human-centered and trusted data science and an enforcement plan for privacy safeguards are planned.
Finally, the Federal Chancellery (TDT, Digital Transformation and Governance of Information and Communication Technologies, ICT), and the Federal Department of Home Affairs and the Federal Statistical Office together with the internal IT service providers of the Swiss Confederation, are to develop a concept on how to create a "Data Science" platform common to the entire Federal Administration.

It is the data economy that triggers the fourth industrial revolution
