Data Science Teas will be held every Tuesday from 4-5pm in CS Building Rooms 150 & 151. The Teas host informal technical conversations about topics in data science, and take a variety of formats, such as: presentations by a single speaker; multiple short 10-minute talks; poster sessions; and whiteboard sessions where students share their latest research.
