CAIDS events include a speaker series and on-campus exhibitions, to raise awareness about the growing role that data plays in shaping our environment. These speakers will also explore the many moral and ethical questions surrounding the collection, use, and ownership of personal data.  Beyond a speaker series, the highlight of CAIDS’ public programming will be the annual celebration of Data Week. Data Week will feature a keynote lecture and hands-on workshops, along with poster sessions and other kinds of presentations by students and faculty to highlight both curricular and scientific innovations and achievements.
