On Feb. 1, you’ll find Distinguished Speaker Jeffrey D. Ullman in Donald Bren Hall 6011 at 11 a.m. giving his talk, “Data Science: Is It Real?” The S.W. Ascherman Professor of Engineering (Emeritus) from Stanford University and CEO of Gradiance Corp. will discuss how different communities approach data science.
“He’s a giant figure, and students should appreciate this opportunity to see and hear him,” says Computer Science Professor Dan Hirschberg. “They will be motivated and inspired.” Hirschberg speaks from experience, having been advised by Ullman in the 1970s while earning his Ph.D. at Princeton University. Ullman also earned his Ph.D. from Princeton and joined the faculty in 1969.
