Data Science Day is a celebration of data science from across our campus, will take place on October 10 at the Alice Campbell Alumni Center. Events include multiple sessions focusing on the application of data science in a variety of research fields including agriculture, health, finance, the humanities, and education, as well as the theoretical foundations. Attendees to these sessions should expect to actively participate as data scientists from across campus work to define how we can best meet the diverse challenges and opportunities presented by the wealth of data now impacting researchers across campus.
