Event Description

The event marks the launch of the Michigan Institute for Data Science, the centerpiece of the the University of Michigan's recently announced $100 million investment in data science. It will highlight current research across the spectrum of data science; examine data science challenges in health, learning analytics, social science and transportation; discuss regional, national and international data science initiatives and partnerships; and explore possibilities for collaboration with industry.

In addition to a host of U-M leaders, speakers include:

  • Daniel Goroff, vice president of the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation. Goroff will give the keynote address, "Privacy and Reproducibility in Data Science." 1:30-2:15 p.m. More details
  • Robert Nowak, the McFarland-Bascom Professor of Engineering at the University of Wisconsin. In a talk titled "Machine Learning for Data Science," Nowak will discuss both the cutting-edge applications and the challenges of this technique that enables computers to learn by example. 9:20-9:45 a.m. More details
  • Kathleen McKeown, director of the Institute for Data Sciences and Engineering at Columbia University. In a talk titled "At the Intersection of Data Science and Language," McKeown will present a system that predicts the future impact of a scientific concept based on several categories of unstructured data on the web. 10:15-10:40 a.m. More details
  • Nandit Soparkar, CEO of Ubiquiti Networks, will present a talk titled "Focusing on the Inputs for the Data Sciences."
