Big Data Science
In the last couple of decades, scientists have developed technologies that allow us to collect and analyze data in ways we never imagined. The Big Data that those technologies generate have transformed not only how scientists do their research, but also how we as humans view our world. This series will explore the progression of new technologies in areas such as statistics, climate, environment, agriculture, biology, medicine, mathematics and astronomy – and discuss how it is changing our world.
All lectures are free and open to the public. T-shirt giveaways while supplies last. No charge for parking in Lot 6.
