Duke Undergraduates Use Machine Learning Techniques to Evaluate Electricity Access in Developing CountriesThursday, September 14 2017
A team of Data+ students, led by researchers in the Energy Initiative's Energy Data Analytics Lab and the Sustainable Energy Transitions Initiative, developed means to evaluate electricity access in developing countries through machine learning techniques applied to aerial imagery data.
iiD's Ghost Bikes Data+ team created an interactive website that demonstrates how factors such as the time of day, weather conditions and demographics affect crash risk.
This summer, a team of Duke students partnered with Durham’s Department of Transportation to analyze and map pedestrian, bicycle and motor vehicle crash data.
Bass Connections, a university-wide initiative that facilitates interdisciplinary teams in exploring societal challenges, is calling for proposals from Duke faculty, graduate and professional students, post-docs, trainees and fellows for new project teams starting in summer 2018 or the 2018-2019 academic year. The application process began September 5 and closes November 3, 2017.
This summer, 70 undergraduates and 27 graduate student mentors participated in a broad spectrum of interdisciplinary data projects as part of the Data+ Summer Program at Duke, which is run by the Information Initiative @Duke in partnership with SSRI, MedX, and other Duke departments, Initiatives, and industry sponsors.
