Seminar: Data Science and the Fourth Paradigm: Data-Intensive Scientific Discovery

On June 22, DAISY is hosting an event entitled “Data Science and the Fourth Paradigm: Data-Intensive Scientific Discovery”.
The event will feature three exciting talks that explain the basics of data science and how it enables a new paradigm of data-intensive scientific discovery, coined “the Fourth Paradigm” by the late Jim Gray, winner of the Turing Award – the “Nobel” prize of computer science.

Everyone with an interest in data science, especially domain scientists using data intensively, is invited to participate in this event. A limited number of seats are available to students.
14:00-14:10: Welcome by Torben Bach Pedersen
14:10-15:10: Democratizing Data Science by Bill Howe
15:10-15:25: Break
15:25-16:10: Data Science and some (classical) challenges by Søren Højsgaard

Participation is free but, registration is required – sign up here.
The event is organized in cooperation with Infinit.
We hope to see you there for an interesting discussion of the future of data-intensive science.
