Dive into data and help predict the future
Every day, huge amounts of data are generated by business, scientific, and social activity taking place all around us. With data coming from sensors, digital images, streaming video, satellite and medical imagery, and from interactions with cloud computing, data-driven approaches to decision making are being applied in areas as diverse as medicine, business, advertising, and entertainment.
University of Waterloo expert in artificial intelligence, Professor Pascal Poupart, shared the key technological advances and paradigm shifts in recent years which were behind, and ultimately facilitated, breakthroughs in AlphaGO, ChatGPT, AlphaFold and the newer AI technologies of today.
More than a hundred students, including 20+ data science graduate students, spent the weekend working in teams learning to detect fraud as part of the inaugural Scotiabank Data Science Discovery Days competition.
