A.I.M.S. Brown Bag Lunch Seminar
[Tuesday, April 3, 2012, 12:00-1:00 PM]

Speaker: Jake Klamka, Founder, Insight Data Science Fellows Program


In its continued commitment to increase mentorship and industry-related training, AIMS invites you to a brown bag lunch seminar with Jake Klamka, the founder of the Insight Data Science Fellow Program. Insight is an intensive six week postdoctoral training fellowship bridging the gap between academia and a career in data science and data analytics.

Silicon Valley technology companies like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Khan Academy and various startups are hiring science PhDs from fields such as physics, astronomy, computational biology, neuroscience, medical imaging and other quantitative fields, including applied math, statistics and economics, to help them glean insights from the terabytes of data that they collect everyday. While the amount of data these companies are producing and storing is growing exponentially, there is a severe shortage of top talent to analyze this data and extract valuable insights from it.

Mr. Klamka will provide an introduction to data science, share stories of scientists who have transitioned from academia to the tech industry and will share his personal journey from particle physics research to founding the Insight Data Science Fellows Program. This will be followed by a Q&A session.
