Registration: Data Analytics Lecture

CURA is pleased to present a marquee event this spring in conjunction with Translational Data Analytics @ Ohio State, Ohio State ADVANCE, The Women's Place, and the STEAM Factory.


When: Tuesday, April 19 at 4:00pm

Where: Film/Video Theater, Wexner Center for the Arts | 1871 N. High Street, Columbus, OH 43210

Who: Dr. Kristin Tolle, Director of the Data Science Initiative in Microsoft Research Outreach

Topic: Collaborative analytics: Meeting global challenges through shared research and development


Kristin M. Tolle is the Director of the Data Science Initiative in Microsoft Research Outreach, where she has worked since 2000 for several product teams including the Natural Language Group, Visual Studio, and the Microsoft Office Excel Team. Since joining Microsoft Research’s outreach program in 2006, she has run several major initiatives from Biomedical computing and environmental science to more traditional computer and information science programs around natural user interactions and data curation. She also directed the development of the Microsoft Translator Hub and the Environmental Science Services Toolkit.

This talk will focus on research collaborations which cut across sectors providing interesting breakthroughs in research and development. Examples include how cloud-based data analytics services can be leveraged to perform research analyses and facilitate collaboration for geographically dispersed teams and co-investigators. The use cases discussed will focus on global challenges—such as healthcare and climate change. They will also highlight collaborations that occur across organization boundaries—such as industry, government and academia. Pushing the state of the art can be facilitated through these partnerships—public/private and academic/industry—when each group bring their unique strengths and perspectives to bear on scientific problems.

Join the data analytics community at the unversity and from around Central Ohio for Dr. Tolle's lecture at 4:00pm on Tuesday, April 19 in the Wexter Center Film/Video Theater. All are welcome to attend; this is an event meant to bridge the university and the community. Please contact Matthew Adair, CURA's Program Coordinator, with any questions at 614-292-5930.
