CCI Corporate Partners Program Presents: DXC Industry Showcase "AI for Real"
Start Date: 1/23/2019Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Date: 1/23/2019End Time: 3:30 PM

Event Description
How do professional data scientists write algorithms? It’s not like you see on TV. In this Industry Showcase, we’ll develop a working AI and show students, first hand, how to write algorithms like a pro. The sessions equal parts hackathon, presentation, and group participation. The session is open to anyone with a computer science background, but students will benefit most if they:
  • Are familiar with R
  • Are familiar with GitHub
  • Bring a laptop installed with RStudio and a working Wi-Fi connection
Also hear from current co-ops about their experience in “a day in the life” at DXC.

Open to ALL CCI Students! 

All CCI students are invited to this event, and attendees will earn CCI Ignite points!
