Data Science Showcase Today!

November 30, 2018

ShowcaseOur Fall Data Science Showcase will feature the latest data science research on everything from the search for extraterrestrial life to fake news to toxic air.

Throughout the afternoon, researchers will present lightning talks on a diverse array of projects with academic, government, and industry partners. In addition, dozens of students will offer poster board presentations on their research on a variety of social impact and science discovery projects. Presenters from Microsoft will highlight some exciting opportunities to participate in projects pushing the frontiers of AI and exploring technology solutions to social challenges.

Projects featured in the lightning talks include:

The Fire Disaster Response Project: This project builds on existing collaborations through the West Big Data Innovation Hub, leveraging State, Federal, and industry data to determine how investments after a disaster like the recent Camp Fire impact a community’s economic conditions. Is an “ounce of prevention” before a disaster worth “a pound of cure”?

Advances in Cell and Tissue Imaging: BIDS Data Science Fellow Joh Schöneberg uses advanced lattice light-sheet microscopy (LLSM) to image cells and tissues in 4D, and develops novel image analytics tools - such as the pyLattice library - to make new biological discoveries possible. 

Renewable Power in Emerging Economies:  New Sun Road will present opportunities for students to participate in a project that starts this January. New Sun, based in Richmond, CA, develops technology solutions to accelerate energy and internet access for under-served communities around the world. A 2016 Microsoft Airband grant winner, New Sun works in collaboration with industry, government, nonprofit and academic partners.

Time: 1 pm - 4 pm
Location: 190 Doe Library (BIDS)
