Associate Professor of Mathematics, Harvey Mudd College

Technology has a history of being a catalyst of change in training and education. We’ve seen it with desktop computers and, more recently, with the emergence of smartphones. But those shifts, substantial as they were, pale in comparison to the next big technological disruption: Data. In this fascinating talk you will discover how the advancing world of data analytics is forever changing the future of learning and work. You will explore the full landscape of data analytics, looking at both the expanding ways in which data is generated, and the advancements in analytics that make that data actionable. You will hear examples of data being used to better understand performance in both education and enterprise, and learn how those insights are being used to inform decision making and transform society. 

This event was proposed by Annalisa Crannell.

Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, Common Hour in the Spring semester of 2021 will continue as a virtual event broadcast live via Zoom and YouTube on Wednesdays from 1:30-2:30 p.m.
