Virtual Field Trip: New Jersey Institute of Technology

Oct 27th 2020
Virtual Event

Friend of TTI/Vanguard, David Bader (previously of Georgia Tech), will host us for a virtual field trip to the New Jersey Institute of Technology, where he is the founding director of the Institute for Data Science, which serves as an umbrella for this public research university’s centers on big data, medical informatics, cybersecurity, data analytics, and artificial intelligence. The virtual tour of will naturally focus on data and computer science, featuring work conducted on massive-scale analytics, social aspects of data science (disinformation and cyberpsychology), advances in homomorphic encryption, and human-in-the-loop optimization, while also stepping afield to explore traumatic brain injuries and biosensors to detect weaponization of the novel coronavirus.
