Description

Purdue kicked off a major Data Science Initiative this year with a goal of preparing "every Purdue student with a fundamental understanding of data science in their chosen field." Why is it important that the average engineering or science major, not to mention philosophy or English majors, have exposure to data science? What are the applications and implications for engineering, science and other fields? How does combining big data, machine learning and artificial intelligence change the game? What are common misconceptions about big data and why should those misconceptions worry us? How do we alleviate people’s data privacy concerns? This discussion will explore these questions and more about big data, data analytics and data science.
