Powerpoint presentation from the morning welcome.
UW Computer science researchers discussed their fields and projects. The goal was to demonstrate the incredible diversity of problems which are best tackled by computer scientists.
One of the great challenges of our time is to effectively handle massive amounts of data. Corporations, governments, scientists, engineers, doctors, lawyers are all drowning in massive amounts of data. In this talk we will examine two of the most important techniques that computer scientists apply to make sense of all of this information. We will look at the field of Machine Learning and how it uses probabilistic models and a training set to "learn" important properties of data. ' We will also see how Visualization is a powerful tool to help people to apply human intuition to see patterns in complex data.
Activities designed to teach computer science topics without computers.
Visual programming environments are perfect for teaching computational concepts and problem solving techniques without having to worry about syntax.
