As data and computational resources both continue to grow exponentially, data science—and, in particular, machine learning and artificial intelligence—play larger and larger roles in our daily lives. They impact the applications that we use (Google Search and ChatGPT) and the devices we wear (Apple Watch) and deploy in our homes (Amazon Alexa). They also play critical roles in making decisions and decision support, in areas from medicine to business. AI and data science, like most technologies, have the potential to improve our lives and society, but they also have the potential to do harm.

In this full-day symposium, Fordham faculty and students will present their AI and data science research and applications, with a focus on work that benefits society. This symposium builds upon the success of last year’s symposium, which reflected the tremendous diversity of AI and data science research being conducted at Fordham. Many departments were represented, and the research spanned education, health care and medicine, neuroscience, cybersecurity, and the environment. With additional support from Fordham’s administration, this year’s symposium will expand beyond arts and sciences to include the full participation of the Gabelli School of Business.

A reception will follow.
