2019-01-03: Five WS-DL Classes Offered for Spring 2019

"Both arXiv and archive.org are invaluable projects which, if they didn't exist, we would dismiss as obviously ridiculous and unworkable."

A record five WS-DL classes are offered for Spring 2019:
  • CS 432/532 Web Science is taught by Alexander Nwala, Thursdays 4:20-7:00pm.  This class explores web phenomena with a variety of data science tools such as Python, R, D3, ML, and IR. 
  • CS 725/825 Information Visualization is taught by Dr. Michele C. Weigle, Wednesdays 9:30am-12:15pm. This class will explore the background and tools needed to develop effective visualizations through analyzing existing visualizations and visualization problems.
  • CS 734/834 Information Retrieval is taught by Dr. Jian Wu, Tuesdays & Thursdays, 9:30-10:45am.  This class will explore the theory and engineering of information retrieval in the context of developing web-based search engines.
  • CS 795/895 Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) is taught by Dr. Sampath Jayarathna, Tuesdays 4:20-7:00pm.  This class will explore the major cognitive and social phenomena surrounding human use of computers with the goal of understanding their impact and creating guidelines for the design and evaluation of software and physical products and services.
  • CS 795/895 Web Archiving Forensics is taught by Dr. Michael L. Nelson, Wednesdays 4:20-7:00pm.  This explores the use of web archives for verifying the priority and authenticity of web pages, especially in the face of faulty and untrustworthy archives.
If you're interested in any of these classes you'll need to take them this semester since Fall 2019 will likely bring a completely different line up:
  • CS 418/518 Web Programming, Dr. Jian Wu
  • CS 431/531 Web Server Design, Sawood Alam
  • CS/DASC 600 Introduction to Data Science, Dr. Sampath Jayarathna
  • CS/DASC 625 Data Visualization, Dr. Michele C. Weigle
I will likely be on research leave (and thus not teaching) in Fall 2019.
