Virtual Town Hall

Closing the Loop: UW ECE at the Forefront of Foundational Change in Data Science

Thursday, September 30, 2021    |   4 – 5 p.m. PDT via Zoom

Continuing upon the tradition of connecting alums, industry partners and friends from around the world to stay informed with UW ECE’s cutting-edge research, Department Chair Eric Klavins invites you to the first town hall of the academic year. The event will feature faculty and students who are at the forefront of the data revolution, machine learning and artificial intelligence through the Institute for Foundations of Data Science (IFDS).

Learn how UW ECE interdisciplinary research is advancing the theoretical foundations of data science, aiming to make machine learning processes more robust and fair in dynamic and complex environments. Join us for an exclusive conversation with IFDS Director and Moorthy Family Inspiration Career Development Professor Maryam Fazel, IFDS faculty collaborator and holder of the Dhanani Endowed Faculty Fellowship, Lillian Ratliff, and UW ECE graduate students Omid Sadeghi-Meibodi and Tanner Fiez.
