This is Data Science! Speaker series
I am happy to announce the Data Science speaker series and line-up for the spring 2016. As you will see, the speakers span education, text analysis, computational neuroscience and from rising stars to established leaders in their fields. The goal is to show off the many ways in which data science is affecting diverse areas of scholarship. Talks are all scheduled for Fridays at 2:30 in Aidekman's first floor auditorium. I look forward to seeing you there!
