Please join us for the University of Delaware Data Science Institute (DSI)’s NextGen Data Science Symposium, an event organized by the UD DSI Student Association and Fellows to bring together UD researchers and local partners interested in Data Science applications.
The “2023 NextGen Data Science Symposium” uniquely targets the next generation of future data science leaders, offering a platform for talks and panels that explore critical career aspects, such as “Navigating the Data Science Job Market” and “Breaking into Data Science as a Career”. These sessions are designed to empower emerging data science professionals with valuable insights and strategies for success in the field.
DSI Fellow Hanan Abou Ali has been selected by the Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) as part of its 10th class of DENIN Environmental Fellows. These highly competitive and prestigious fellowships offer financial support and professional development opportunities to doctoral students at the University of Delaware whose environmentally relevant research interests demonstrate a clear link to societal need and benefit.
The University of Delaware, already a leader in cutting-edge AI research, is now leading the conversation about AI in the context of teaching and learning. Through the AI for Teaching and Learning Working Group, 26 faculty and staff members from units across the University are developing innovative teaching practices and policies in relation to emerging AI tools, beginning with a yearlong seminar series. The Working Group also complements the work of UD’s Data Science Institute and the Artificial Intelligence Center of Excellence (AICoE), as well as the work of a broad range of faculty and graduate students already engaged in AI research.
DSI Resident Faculty Members Kyle Davis and Federica Bianco are co-authors of a study published in the journal Remote Sensing, which used remote sensing techniques to look at changes in mining surface footprints between 2005 and 2020 in two rare earth mines located on either side of the Myanmar-China border, within Kachin State in northern Myanmar and Nujiang Prefecture in Yunnan Province in China.
New research resulting from a longitudinal study by primary investigator, DSI Faculty Council member Jen Horney, founder of UD’s Epidemiology program, shows threats to public health workers during the COVID-19 pandemic nearly doubled after the vaccine was released.
Serving as a nucleating effort to catalyze and coordinate data science initiatives at UD
