Evolving Education with Cognitive and Data Sciences

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

IEEE Big Data Initiative, the Business-Higher Education Forum, and IBM are partnering to host a one-day workshop on Sunday, October 23, just before World of Watson. The workshop is suited for academics responsible for artificial intelligence, machine learning, cognitive science, citizen analyst, data science, or data engineering curriculum and programs.

Many schools have moved to establish specialist data science programs, but is that focus enough to meet the rapidly changing needs of employers?

Join the conversation on October 23rd to engage with academic and industry leaders. Learn how others are driving the evolution. Questions on the table for the day include:
* How will these emerging fields evolve?
* What competencies will every student require?
* What competencies will specialists require?
* What competencies will business expect students acquire?

If you are responsible for curriculum and program design, or for building the talent pool for your organization this event is tailor made for you. Learn how to outthink the skills gap.
