The Georgia Informatics Institutes is hosting the 3rd Advancing Informatics in Government and Industry event on November 22, 2019. Events include panels, speakers and student posters on challenges and state of the art solutions with an interdisciplinary, comprehensive focus on informatics.
As one of the top public, comprehensive, universities in the country, UGA has research and educational programs that engineer, analyze and utilize a broad spectrum of data streams and information systems from nearly all fields. Correspondingly, industry is integrating informatics pipelines into core business activities at all levels, from management, engineering and quality control to sales and customer relations. This rapidly shifting landscape is fertile ground for innovative, interdisciplinary partnerships between academia, industry, and government. As an initial step to growing these partnerships, the Advancing Informatics in Government and Industry workshop will bring together leaders in industry and government with UGA faculty and students on panels that discuss informatics needs and opportunities, from data management to artificial intelligence and cyber security, that we are collectively facing.
