What is about

UMass Data Science Seminar is for everyone who is either interested or experienced in the methods and application of machine learning in data science. We want to build a community of data science researchers and practioners in Umass Lowell that can share knowledge, projects, and experience. Our events usually take place on North Campus of UMass LowellWednesday and include two parts: a lecture focusing on topics in deep learning at 3:30-4:40pm; and a sminar talk by invited speaker at 5:00-6:20pm. If you would like to present at the seminar, please email one of the organizers: Hong YuYonghao Jin.
