Professor Ingrid Daubechies is the first female recipient of the William Benter Prize in Applied Mathematics.
We are all data scientists these days, to one degree or another. The ability to explore and analyze data helps us make sense of our world. Duke’s Data Expeditions program aims to introduce more undergraduates to data science early in their college education. The Information Initiative at Duke (iiD), in partnership with the Social Science Research Institute (SSRI), supports pairs of graduate students to prepare a dataset for use in an existing undergraduate course.
For the past four years, Maurizio Forte and his teams have used cyberarchaeology technologies such as remote sensing, data recording apps, real-time visualization, and 3D digital models to explore the ancient Etruscan city of Vulci in Italy.
Both professors were recognized this week as top faculty who “combine outstanding research with a special commitment to undergraduate education.”
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.
