The spring seminar series will start on February 5, 2016 and explore an array of topics including predicting public transit delays, data science for social impact, machine learning, and connectomics- mapping the brain. Harvard SEAS professor Demba Ba will kick off the series with his talk on"New Time Frequency Tools Toward a more Precise Characterization of Rhythms from the Brain."
IACS seminars are generally held every other Friday during the academic year, and are free and open to the public. Lunch is served at 12:30pm on a first-come, first served basis, with the seminar beginning promptly at 1pm. Unless otherwise indicated, all seminars will be held in Maxwell Dworkin G115.
