The Future of Data: Marquette in Milwaukee Podcast features NMDSI Co-Directors

We live in a world of big data. Now more than ever, our challenge will be harnessing that data and understanding how to use it ethically.

The podcast also features Marquette University President Mike Lovell and several others as they discuss machine learning, statistics, data analytics – and just as importantly, how to turn data into insights.
