The School of Computing held its first annual PIPELINE Career Expo in September. The event was held on September 14th in the Union Ballroom and brought together more than 350 undergraduate and graduate students with 18 companies and organizations.
“The event was a great success, we look forward to continuing this event in the years to come,” says John Melchi, Associate Director of Business Affairs in the School of Computing.
Save the date – next year’s event will be held September 20, 2019.
Professor of computing at the University of Utah Suresh Venkatasubramanian talks with Ira Glass and Mathematician Hannah Fry to discuss how algorithms are being used not only in the justice system, but in healthcare and data mining too. And this algorithmic takeover, they say, could have a dark side.
The School of Computing, along with the SCI Institute, Harvard University, NVidia, and FaceBook Reality Labs sponsored a reception honoring Ivan Sutherland. The reception was held during the SIGGRAPH 2018 conference along with a panel discussion on virtual reality.
