As our economy, society, and daily life become increasingly dependent on data, new college graduates entering the workforce need to have the skills to analyze data effectively. At the request of the National Science Foundation, the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine organized a study to explore what data science skills are essential for undergraduates and how academic institutions should structure their data science education programs. During this webinar, study co-chairs Laura Haas and Alfred Hero discuss the report's findings and recommendations, followed by a question and answer session with webinar participants.
