People are excited about Platypus, the Photoshop plug-in tool that uses mathematical algorithms to allow art conservators to better analyze paintings using X-ray images. The software was developed by iiD faculty Ingrid Daubechies (Mathematics Department and Electrical and Computer Engineering Department) and David Dunson (Statistics Department) in partnership with the North Carolina Museum of Art.

This fall Duke University will launch several new open online courses in two high-demand fields: data analysis and software development. The courses will be offered on online learning platform Coursera, and are intended to help individuals around the world build practical career skills. The first course starts September 15.
Accenture and Duke University have formed an alliance focused on jointly developing new advanced analytics solutions to address real-world, client-specific business challenges. The Accenture and Duke University Analytics Research Program, which will have an initial focus on health management research, aims to bring together data, modeling and analysis to achieve sustainable business and patient outcomes.
We encourage the iiD community to attend the open house and dedication for the Foundry:
