ICME's annual research symposium, Xpo, was on Friday, May 18, 2018. This event was for Stanford faculty, staff and students, and external partners of ICME. There were over 150 participants in attendance.
Every May, ICME holds a Research Symposium, providing an up-close and inside look at current research and future plans for ICME faculty and students. ICME is engaged with over 50 faculty from 20-plus departments throughout Stanford. This was a unique opportunity to see how computational mathematics, data science, machine learning, scientific computing, and related fields are applied across a wide range of domain areas.
This year, ICME Xpo included a morning Roundtable with ICME industry partners, faculty and students around the topic: Design for Data and Algorithms. The Roundtable explored best practices and frameworks dealing with the design challenges around trust, bias, communications, privacy, usability and more.
