New smartphone apps being developed could help track and trace where people with the virus have been and alert others who might be at risk of coming into contact with it. But Stan Matwin, director of Dal's Institute for Big Data Analytics, says decision-makers must grapple with how to make these programs both effective and respectful of people’s privacy.
Computer Science researchers are using algorithms and machine learning to listen for the distinct calls of one of the world’s most endangered animals in a bid to identify where they are and shield them from one of their greatest threats.
Six scholars from Dalhousie are among the newest Canada Research Chairs recently announced, pushing world-leading research forward in pathogens, risk management, healthy aging, ocean analytics and more.
Computer Science faculty member Stan Matwin has been awarded with the 2019 Canadian Artificial Intelligence Association (CAIAC) Lifetime Achievement Award, recognizing his outstanding contributions in pushing forward our understanding of AI.
Dal computer scientist Sageev Oore has been named to a top, nationally funded chair program focused on the advancement of research and leadership in artificial intelligence. This is the first Canada CIFAR AI Chair held by a Dalhousie faculty member.
As the Institute for Big Data Analytics turns 5, we look back on the progress made and look ahead to the next five years, but also to discuss the future of big data and the opportunities and challenges we face as a society.
