Event Description: The explosion of data is rapidly changing our everyday life and is impacting every aspect of our society, including higher education. This leads to a great deal of needs for university faculty to work together to explore fresh ideas, to develop new tools to understand big data, and to produce the next generation of workforce for the society. Over the past several years, our colleagues have already worked together to obtain fruitful results, including the creation of the Data MASTER Program, the new Master of Data Science Program, as well as several university seminars related to data-driven computation. With that, we would like to invite you for a gathering so we can learn each other’s interests in this direction and explore collaborative opportunities.
