Data Science & Society
I will provide a keynote at the DisCo 2019 conference on E-learning – Unlocking the Gate of Education around the Globe. In this talk I will introduce the focus area of Applied Data Science at Utrecht University and how the ADS Profile for master students can be viewed as an implementation of Student Empowerment. As a running example I will discuss the obligatory ADS Profile course Data Science & Society which focuses on Knowledge Discovery with Big Data using Cloud Computing technologies. Next to that, I can happily chair a DisCo session and participate in a discussion panel as well.
