A team of researchers in the Department of Statistics at Iowa State University has developed a mathematical model that reveals critical characteristics about COVID-19—such as how contagious the virus is and how rapidly it spreads through populations.
In these uncertain times, we want to do our part to inhibit the spread of COVID-19. Therefore the Midwest Big Data Summer School, originally scheduled for May 18-21, 2020 in Ames, Iowa is now cancelled. It will not be rescheduled.
We hope to see you in 2021!
Data science is an important interdisciplinary field that significantly affects many aspects of the modern world, including government, industry, academia and the general public. Transdisciplinary Research in Principles of Data Science – or TRIPODS – brings together computer science, statistics, mathematics and related communities to develop theoretical foundations of data science through integrated research and training activities focused on core algorithmic, mathematical and statistical principles.
