Earlier this year, the White House hired its first-ever US Chief Data Scientist to help the government harness the power of innovation and big data to better serve the American people. Shortly thereafter, the University of Rochester assembled a team of top tech leaders to advise the University’s new Institute for Data Science.
A ten-member advisory committee made up of representatives from leading high-technology companies, industry and academia will meet for the first time this week.
In a new study, Simon School professor used data science methodologies to take a closer look at what actually motivates candidates to “go negative.”
Robin and Tim Wentworth make $3 million commitment to endow directorship of Institute for Data Science
“We view being part of the formative stages of the Institute for Data Science as a once in a lifetime opportunity,” said Tim Wentworth, a member of the University’s Board of Trustees since 2013.
In a paper to be presented this week at the American Association for Artificial Intelligence conference in Austin, Texas, computer science professor Jiebo Luo and his colleagues describe a computer program that can analyze “selfie” videos recorded by a webcam as the person engages with social media.
Simon Business School is responding to rapid change in the ever-growing “big data” world by revamping its existing MS program in Business Analytics curriculum.
“Simulated molecular clouds are beautiful, intricate, and ever-changing — properties that make them ideal candidates for high-powered visualization,” wrote PhD student Erica Kaminski about her award-winning images.
The University of Rochester previewed a new visualization lab at the Carlson Science and Engineering Library.
The lab will help researchers understand and manipulate large, complex sets of information and structures. It is part of a $30 million investment in high performance computing and data science the college has made over the last couple of years.
The new VISTA Collaboratory, located in the Carlson Science and Engineering Library, completes a high performance supercomputing system on a massive scale and is one of only a handful of similar labs in the U.S. The display consists of an array of 24 monitors, is 20 feet wide and 8 feet tall, and has a resolution approaching that of IMAX theaters.
