Brandeis Data Science Initiative

The Brandeis Data Science Initiative is launching a new seminar series beginning on March 16. These sessions will provide opportunities for researchers at Brandeis who know little to nothing about data science to learn from faculty members who utilize these methods in their own research and become inspired to adapt data science to their own projects. The series includes speakers across the School of Arts and Sciences, the Heller School, International Business School and the Rabb School.
