CCS holds four major annual events:
- Big Data Conference & Workshop
- Data Intersections: Data Journalism, Data Science and Digital Humanities
- Smart Cities Miami Conference
- VizUM annual Symposium
This year’s Conference theme is transportation, social artificial intelligence, and privacy. The Conference will also feature Keynote Speaker Rony Abovitz of Magic Leap, and the launch of the inaugural Smart Cities Miami Competition: Design Your Coral Gables.
An accessible, community-driven conference with talks and tutorials for all skill levels: students, practitioners, and researchers, PyData focuses on open-source computational tools.
This workshop is designed to provide a foundation of basic concepts that all programming depends on, using Python as an example. Free to UM Faculty/Staff/Students.
Save the dates: Thursday and Friday, January 24-25, 2019 for the 3rd annual Smart Cities MIAMI Conference. This year’s theme is Transportation and Infrastructure.
