Future of AI and Data Science in Telecommunications

Register Here

Join us for a fireside chat with Bryan Larish, Chief Security Architect, Networks at Verizon and Nick Feamster, Neubauer Professor of Computer Science at the University of Chicago on the emerging uses of AI and data science in telecommunications. Learn how machine learning can be used for advanced anomaly detection, IoT, edge computing and security applications. They will discuss the state of the field both in academia and industry, what changes have occurred due to COVID-19, and where they see opportunities for innovation.

The event will be moderated by Heather Zheng, Neubauer Professor of Computer Science at UChicago.

Part of the CDAC 2021 Data & Technology Outlook Series

Many of the data science and computational tools that revolutionized the modern business landscape resulted from close collaborations between industry and academia. Tomorrow’s innovations are under construction today in R&D departments and university laboratories, where researchers develop solutions to the most pressing data challenges across fields.

This winter, the Center for Data and Computing (CDAC) at the University of Chicago presents a series of critical conversations between industry leaders and researchers pushing the frontiers of data science forward, presenting and discussing new tools in artificial intelligence, data analysis and discovery, security and privacy, that will define the next decade of data technology in science and industry. The Outlook series will provide a balanced understanding of the trends reshaping business and tech with the goal of translating hype into realistic predictions.
