Opportunities and Perils of Data Science

Thursday, November 4 at 4 p.m. in 34-401-Grier Room A

An EECS Seminar by Dr. Alfred Z. Spector, followed by a fireside chat moderated by Cadence Design Systems Professor Aleksander Madry. 

Data science has provided unprecedented opportunities to learn new insights and to predict, recommend, cluster, classify, transform, and optimize. However, no new technology arrives without complications, and we have recently seen both the press and various political circles illustrating real, potential, and fictional implications of the field. This presentation aims to balance the opportunities provided by data science against the many challenges that have ensued.
