Congratulations to Katherine Heller, Guillermo Sapiro, Jim Moody, Alex Volfovsky, Ricardo Henao, Nimmi Ramanujam, Joe Lucas, Kyle Bradbury, and the other recipients of these collaborative grants for Duke faculty!
Previously, we have celebrated Amanda for the IEEE-CS Technical Consortium on High-Performance Computing (TCHPC) Award for Excellence for Early Career Researchers in High-Performance Computing and the 35 Innovators Under 35 Award.
The Fair is an opportunity for students to ask project leads about 2018 Data+ Projects, to discuss goals, and to learn more about the data they would be navigating in the summer. We host the fair in the 3rd floor atrium, where posters describing 2017 projects give students an idea of what they might expect this summer.
Oak Ridge National Labs' (ORNL) Leadership Computing Facility allows faculty and graduate students to apply for core hours on its powerful computers, as well as access to its computers for smaller projects.
In a study led by Duke iiD's Patrick Green, scientists created some conflict between mantis shrimp to see if and when they would resort to drastic violence to solve it.
Duke Mathematics Professor Jonathan Mattingly’s algorithm demonstrating political gerrymandering in North Carolina’s district mapping was a focal point in the ruling of the 4th Circuit of Appeals judge earlier this week.
In the first decision of its kind, federal judges threw out North Carolina's congressional map, saying it was drawn to favor Republicans. iiD faculty member Jonathan Mattingly testified in the case.
A team of researchers at Duke and the University of Maryland have created an algorithm that attempts to reflect the ethical choices that a human would make based on responses to surveys about who should get a kidney transplant.
Professor Massimo Fornasier of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) had another reason to visit Duke this Fall when he gave a mini-course for the Mathematics Department: he wants to bring Duke’s Data+ summer program to TUM!
