Nirav Merchant, Director of the Data Science Institute, Data7 at the University of Arizona, will present the third episode in the UA’s Science Lecture Series this coming Monday Evening at 7pm. The theme of this year’s lecture series is: Humans, Data and Machines. Nirav will be focusing on Machine Learning as these systems are rapidly becoming more pervasive, powering many applications from recommending music, movies and merchandise to driving our cars to assisting in medical diagnoses. He will discuss the ethical, security and technical concerns tied with these advances. How do we strike a balance for enabling pragmatic and productive use of these capabilities? What are the new learning and training opportunities that allow us to stay relevant and lead the way for future innovations. And how do we make sure we develop a work force that is up to the task.
