At the Center for Data Science, we strive to facilitate the highest quality data science research, education, and industry collaboration. We work closely with industry partners on projects addressing their business needs, and we are educating the next generation of data science professionals.
Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, we have decided to cancel the April 16 virtual Data Science Research Symposium. Instead, we will postpone the event to September 17, 2020. Please mark your calendar now! We will post more information, including a new registration link, at a later date.
Graduate students spend summer working for the common good
This summer, nine UMass Amherst graduate students will put their data science skills and experience to work helping organizations measure their carbon footprint, detect misinformation in public forums, analyze healthcare data on veterans, and automatically identify objects in images. The nine fellows participating in the Data Science for the Common Good (DS4CG) program, administered by the Center for Data Science (CDS), hail from diverse backgrounds, but all are passionate about using their skills for the public good.
