New technologies, tools, and techniques for capturing, managing, and using data are making it possible to push the edges of what is known and serve society in new and innovative ways. To do so requires new kinds of partnerships across disciplines and sectors and new sets of skills for graduates to fill the fast-growing job market for data scientists. 

Building on the unique and particular advanced data analytics strengths of the University at Albany, the Inaugural Forum on Data convened by President Robert Jones, as part of the UA2020 Advanced Data Analytics initiative, will bring together the UAlbany Community with experts from industry and government to explore the latest applications of advanced data analytics. 


The Forum is co-chaired by Dr. James Dias, Vice President for Research, UAlbany and Dr. Theresa Pardo, Director, CTG.
