We are pleased to announce that on Friday, April 23, 2021, the AUC Data Science Initiative will launch its inaugural W.E.B. Du Bois Data Science Symposium! Dr. W.E.B. Du Bois is a former professor at Atlanta University who pioneered data visualizations to unravel the social plight of Blacks in the 19th century. We invite attendees to join together and carry on the legacy of Du Bois through data science innovations that address issues facing Black America.
Dr. Sean Jones of the National Science Foundation will give a keynote on “Harnessing the Technological Revolution Through AI, Data Science, and Quantum.” Dr. Nathan Alexander of Morehouse College will give a keynote entitled “Data and Du Bois: Futurist Frameworks for an Interdisciplinary Education.” The Symposium will also feature other engaging presentations, lightning talks, and roundtable discussions.
Join us and take part in this historic Symposium to dialogue, network, and explore data science topics with innovative AUC scholars!
The Symposium is virtual, free, and open to the public.
