FEU Tech Innovation Center holds first Tech Talk on Artificial Intelligence and Data Science
Posted: March 6, 2020
In line with their vision to instill an innovative mindset among its students and associates, FEU Tech’s Innovation Center organized Tech Talk – a monthly series that discusses globally-trending topics in technology to inform and to inspire our Tamaraws as they plan their future careers.
For its first event, Tech Talk featured Engr. Charlene V. San Buenaventura, a Data Scientist who specializes in Deep Learning with five years of academe and industry experience. She shared her expertise in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence-touted to be two of the most in demand careers in the world in the coming years.
Data is something that can be hard to interpret, but just as we have a natural language we can learn how to interpret them too, San Buenaventura explained in an hour-long seminar at the FEU Tech Innovation Center with almost 200 Computer Science and Engineering students in attendance.
The speaker also highlighted that Data Science has become a field soon to be recognized in the industry, with more and more tech companies applying these kinds of studies together vis-a-vis Artificial Intelligence.
To bring the topics closer to her audience, she associated each of her discussions to real-life circumstances. This made the topics relatable and easier to understand, which kept the audience engaged throughout.
Two of our iTamaraws shared their learnings from the first Tech Talk series.
Data Science has a huge importance in our society today and of course, as a Civil Engineering student, we can use its different algorithms such as the GPS to search for different vital locations where we can build infrastructures, Michael Knight Wana said.
My key takeaway from the seminar is that Data Science is an emerging trend today in the Philippines and in the world. It is also something that unifies and integrates the idea of data analysis and machine learning which is actually part of my program right now which is Computer Science, Kenzo Pugan added.
