There is a new student group on campus called the Columbia Data Science Society. They’ve asked me to pass along the following information:
Columbia Data Science Society, CDSS, is an interdisciplinary society that promotes data science across Columbia University and the New York City community. Our goal is to understand how to use and manage data to solve complex problems. We believe that the key to data science is its interdisciplinary scope, so we strongly encourage students from all backgrounds to join us. The society has three core priorities: learning, networking, and practicing. To learn about data science, we host a variety of speaker series, panel discussions, and skills workshops. To network with data scientists, we arrange social events on campus and promote meet-ups around the city. To practice data science, we organize data science competitions and events, where members work in teams to test their problem-solving skills. Please join us on this new and exciting knowledge frontier!
To keep up to date with CDSS you should join our email list, either via the website https://lists.columbia.edu/mailman/listinfo/cdss or by emailing email@example.com. We promise not to spam you, but will send a weekly newsletter of CDSS events, other upcoming events around campus that we think you might be interested in, and useful events and resources beyond Columbia.
CDSS is an interschool group that welcomes students from the entire Columbia community. We’ll be offering events targeted to all levels, from technical seminars to experts to introductory events, from applications to ethics to coding, and everything in between.
We have several events planned already, and lots more to come this semester.
