The past year has been one of the busiest for IDSS. We have grown our
, started exciting new research collaborations, and opened our
program to thousands of learners worldwide.
One signature project of note: our
collaboration with Moroccan fertilizer leader OCP
, which aims at creating a data-sharing market for farmers in sub-Saharan Africa to accelerate their adoption of technology and increase their production and profit-- all by unlocking the power and potential of data.
We've also run many successful events this year, most recently our annual celebration of statistics and 'L4DC,' a new conference we hosted that focuses on the exciting area emerging at the intersection of real-time physical data, machine learning, optimization and control.
I congratulate our 2019 graduates and look forward to seeing what they accomplish in the years to come.
