We intend the terms scientific computing and data science to be broadly defined and inclusive. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Novel numerical methods, numerical analysis, high-performance computing, parallel algorithms, and application problems that involve numerical challenges.
- Machine learning algorithms, deep learning and neural networks, applied/predictive modeling with real-world data, data-enabled science, dimensionality reduction, Bayesian methods, natural language processing, and computational statistics.

During Spring 2023, we will meet on **Thursdays, 2:00-3:00pm** in **ACS 362B**.

This seminar is part of the RTG theme “Scientific Computing and Data Science”. If you have questions, please contact Prof. Changho Kim (ckim103@ucmerced.edu).
