Cambridge, Mass. - March 10, 2014 - Jelani Nelson, Assistant Professor of Computer Science at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS), has been selected to receive a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The honor is considered one of the most prestigious for up-and-coming researchers in science and engineering.
Applied Computation, which encompasses Data Science (DS) and Computational Science and Engineering (CSE), is an exciting and rapidly evolving field that exploits the power of computation as an approach to major challenges on the frontiers of natural and social science and all engineering fields.
A new S.M. degree program in Data Science will begin in fall 2018.
For more information, contact Daniel Weinstock, Associate Director of Graduate Studies in Applied Computation.
Engineers on the job market, take note: it’s not about what you know, but how you think.
Cambridge, Mass. – September 25, 2012 – The real-time data of cyberspace, detailing every like, dislike, spur of the moment thought—and more—provide unprecedented opportunities for research by scientists from all areas.
No longer limited to narrow focus groups, painstaking in-person surveys, or artificially controlled studies, researchers today have a far easier time compiling and manipulating large data sets. At the same time, however, sharing such data can be fraught with risks.
