For the past few years MinneAnalytics has increased its commitment to the data science and analytics profession by enhancing the number and quality of students pursuing careers in this field. This support has included funding individual scholarships, and providing funding support, volunteers, judges and speakers at academic events in the upper Midwest.
MinneAnalytics is proud to to announce the recipients of two scholarships created for Minnesota’s next generation of data scientists and analytics professionals. The 2016 Scholars for Big Data, Analytics and Data Science are Bailey Perry of U of M, Twin Cities, and Daniel Peters of U of M, Duluth.
On Saturday, Nov. 5, teams of undergraduate and graduate students from across the Midwest gathered at Optum in Eden Prairie for MinneMUDAC: Dive Into Water Data. Each team shared insights developed through weeks of exploring Minnesota water quality and property data.
