There will be an Executive Meeting on Wednesday, June 28, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in the WRF Data Science Studio.
Everyone is welcome to join us for our Data Science for Social Good happy hour, Thusday, June 29, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Studio.
Jevin West, data science fellow, and Carl Bergstrom, professor of biology, will be awarded a share of the $1 million Knight Prototype Fund for their work on developing curriculum for the Calling BS course. The winning projects were chosen for their ability to "be quickly built and to test ideas that respond to the challenges affecting the health of our news ecosystem and ultimately our democracy". The course was also featured in Salon this week.
Please submit items for the weekly newsletter to email@example.com by noon on Thursday for inclusion in the regular Friday mailing.
