Taking Data Science Mainstream

HDSI Director Rajesh Gupta appeared on Good Morning San Diego-KUSI this week, explaining the impact of UC San Diego in taking the lead nationally in building its far-reaching data science education and research program.

“What UC San Diego has done it has taken data science and it lifted it all the way as a campus-wide initiative, so that the students and faculty are drawn from all these departments, and trained by scientists in all these departments,“ Gupta explained to news anchor Lauren Phinney. Full interview: https://www.kusi.com/halicioglu-data-science-institute-celebrates-one-year/

Rajesh K. Gupta, a distinguished professor of computer science and director of the Halıcıoğlu Data Science Institute (HDSI), is recognized for “distinguished contributions in design of embedded systems and hardware-software co-design, and leadership in research administration.” Gupta’s research focuses on cyber-physical systems such as smart buildings. He leads the National Science Foundation-supported project MetroInsight on city-scale sensing data for improved services; and serves as co-principal investigator for DARPA’s Semiconductor Research Corporation on Computing on Network Infrastructure (CONIX). Methods and tools he developed for design of microelectronic chips are now used in standard practice for building semiconductor chips. Gupta was instrumental in the creation of HDSI as an academic unit.  He holds the Qualcomm Endowed Chair in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, and the international chair for France’s National Institute for Research in Computer Science and Automation (INRIA). He is an IEEE and ACM Fellow.
