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.
A project led by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Cooke Seafood and Dalhousie is using sophisticated sensors to convert a mussel's distinctive behaviour when exposed to stressors into an early detector of toxic algae. This is one of the first projects DeepSense, hosted in the Faculty, will work on.
For Dal's 200th anniversary year, the Faculty of Computer Science set out to double the number of female students entering its undergrad programs. The Faculty not only met this ambitious goal — it’s just getting started when it comes to increasing diversity in its field.
