Arek Stopczynski Visit

We’re lucky to have Lab Alum Arkadiusz ‘Arek’ Stopczynski visiting the lab on January 9th and 10th. On the 9th, he’s busy being examiner at a PhD Defense, but on his second day in Denmark, he’s going to give a talk to tell us about what he’s been up to since starting at Google af couple of years ago.

In addition to working with us at DTU, Arek has also been a postdoc in Sandy Pentland’s lab at MIT’s MediaLab, he was an integral part of building the world’s first mobile brain scanner, and he’s given a great TEDx talk. And did I mention that we’ve just put out yet another paper together.

Below, you can find the talk details:

  • Date: January 10th, 2019
  • Time: 13:30-14:30
  • Place: DTU Building 321, in the first floor lab space
  • Title:  Data Science: Thinking Industry
  • Abstract: The practice of Data Science involves employing different methodologies, techniques, and tools, both deconstructive and constructive. In this talk we will discuss some fundamental differences in how Academia and Industry (exemplified by large tech companies) approach teaching and applying Data Science. These differences have important implications for how we teach students and conduct research.

I hope you can make it. Arek will stick around afterwards if you’d like to chat and hang out.
