USRA-NASA-Berkeley Aviation Data Science Seminar 2020

April 13, 2020 - Given the ongoing COVID-19 circumstances, the NAMS Aviation Data Science seminar series will resume via videoconference.  

As the number of air vehicles grows exponentially with unmanned aerial systems and the amount of data grows exponentially in civil aviation, the future holds more promise for a greater impact from advanced tools and techniques in data science and AI. This Spring, learn from experts in government, industry, and academia in a 12-seminar series, sponsored by USRA and UC Berkeley with NASA Ames Research Center.
