Data Matters is the weekly seminar series of the Data Science Initiative. Talks are held Wednesdays during the academic year, 4–5:30 pm, at 164 Angell Street, 3rd floor.
The Data Science Initiative includes scholars with backgrounds in the physical, biological, computational, and social sciences. Data Matters is intended to stimulate conversations and collaboration by bringing multiple perspectives to challenging data-driven problems and are structured to be more of an interactive experience than traditional academic seminars. The format is generally a 25-30 minute presentation followed by 45 minutes of interaction with the audience, mediated by a discussant. Both internal and external speakers are welcome.
