Organized by the Institute for Applied Computational Science, ComputeFest is an annual two week program of knowledge- and skill-building activities in computational science and engineering.
SKILL BUILDING WORKSHOPS
Dates: January 11-15, 2016
This year's workshops will feature instruction in software tools for modeling, analysis, scientific computing and visualization, as well as how to use cluster, grid and cloud resources. Workshops will not be video taped or lived streamed. All workshops are free and open to the public. Note: Registration will open in November.
STUDENT COMPUTATIONAL CHALLENGE
Dates: January 19-21, 2016
Teams of Harvard students compete to solve a real-world problem by applying modeling and other computational tools.
SYMPOSIUM ON THE FUTURE OF COMPUTATIONAL CHALLENGE
Date: January 22, 2016
The Promise and Future of Artificial Intelligence in the World
Industry leaders, researchers, and Harvard faculty and students will come together for a day of lively conversation about the sweeping advances in the field of artificial intelligence. Leading experts in AI will discuss current trends in deep neural networks and how organizations are using new tools to address important real-world issues in science and society. This one-day symposium will bring together machine learning and AI professionals, domain scientists, academic researchers, and companies and organizations at the forefront of applications of AI and machine learning.
