** The Distinguished Lectures in Computational Innovation series is currently on hiatus. **
The Distinguished Lectures in Computational Innovation series highlights programmers, data scientists, and other practitioners from the private sector who lead cutting-edge technology initiatives such as Python, C++, and the Open Source Initiative. The events, which take place over the fall and spring semesters, include a presentation, Question & Answer session, and networking reception. All Columbia University students, faculty, postdocs, and administrators are welcome to register and attend these events. The Foundations for Research Computing program is proud to partner with the Data Science Institute and the Brown Institute for Media Innovation for this Distinguished Lectures series.
