Impacts of the NSF CAREER Award

This panel is scheduled for Thursday, June 22nd; 15:30 - 16: 30


There are currently many good career opportunities for data science and machine learning researchers in industry ranging from large IT and AI companies to startup firms. This panel showcases successful academic careers.  The panel features five panelists that are former NSF Career Award winners from the International Neural Network Society (INNS) and the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) that received their NSF CAREER awards from the Engineering (ENG) directorate / Electrical, Communications and Cyber Systems (ECCS) Division / Energy, Power, Control and Networks (EPCN) program. Each panelist will briefly discuss their NSF CAREER Award and how it helped them launch their academic careers. This will be followed by a Q&A session. This should be of great interest to all participants, but especially to junior faculty, postdocs, and graduate students.
