Upcoming MAA-NCS Summer Seminar 2016

Topic Big Data

Location: South Dakota State University, Brookings, SD

Dates: Optional 1-day workshop on programming with “R” on June 21, 2016
Seminar is on June 22-24, 2016

Overview: Participants in the seminar will get a peek into the world of big data. We’ll investigate big data used in various fields and learn about big data analysis using mathematical and statistical methods. The goal of the seminar is to familiarize participants with a wide variety of techniques and applications, emphasizing breadth rather than depth. The material will be accessible to a broad range of faculty and scholars- no specific specialty in statistics or topology will be required. The seminar will include a mix of lecture and hands-on work and should provide tools for scholars to use in their own work and in the undergraduate classroom.
