Computer Science Faculty Helping Students Understand the Data Science of Risk and Human Activity
The rapid growth of the Data Science field brings about an increase in the vast amount and variety of data that is produced. Computer Science faculty members Dr. George Mohler and Dr. Mohammad Al Hasan serve as mentors to students conducting research through their National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) grant. At just under $300,000, this 3 year grant will better prepare students seeking industry positions for the demands of companies where Data Science is a top priority.

IUPUI field-data study finds no evidence of racial bias in predictive policing
INDIANAPOLIS - While predictive policing aims to improve the effectiveness of police patrols, there is concern that these algorithms may lead police to target minority communities and result in discriminatory arrests. An IUPUI School of Science computer scientist conducted the first study to look at real-time field data from Los Angeles, CA and found predictive policing did not result in biased arrests.
Ambition drives computer science students into business
There's more to artificial intelligence -- AI -- than robots taking over the world. Zachary Balda and Brandon Boynton say what they do is machine learning, a subset of AI. Word choice aside though, it kind of sounds like they're helping machines replace the need for a human brain.
