We live in an increasingly data-driven, supercomputer powered, globally interconnected world. That poses significant challenges for scientists and engineers across every discipline. According to Prof. James Hendler, solving these problems will require new technologies that will be used to collect and analyze data, perform simulations, and then use the results in solving these problems.
Prof. Hendler shares information about the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in general and their Institute for Data Exploration & Application (I.D.E.A.). He also informs us why every University needs a required data analytics course for all students, regardless of major.
