Data Science Coast to Coast Lecture Series is hosted jointly by seven academic data science institutes and provides a unique opportunity to foster a broad-reaching data science community. Speakers include important figures in data science who will provide insight on the transformative use of data science in traditional research disciplines, future breakthroughs in data science research, data science entrepreneurship, and advocacy and national policies for a data-enabled and just society. The series will also include faculty members and postdoctoral fellows at the seven host universities whose research spans the theory and methodology of data science, and their application in arts and humanities, engineering, biomedical, natural, physical and social sciences.
