Dr. Talitha Washington
Full Professor of Mathematics at Clark Atlanta University and Director of the Atlanta University Center Data Science Initiative Clark Atlanta University
Located in the “Cradle of the Civil Rights Movement”, the Atlanta University Center (AUC) Data Science Initiative has a keen focus to advance social justice through data science. The AUC is a consortium of four historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in Atlanta, Georgia: Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Spelman College. The inaugural director of the AUC Data Science Initiative, Dr. Talitha Washington, hopes to move data science towards ethics and fairness for Black America because “whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.”
The UW Data Science Seminar is an annual lecture series at the University of Washington that hosts scholars working across applied areas of data science, such as the sciences, engineering, humanities and arts along with methodological areas in data science, such as computer science, applied math and statistics. Our presenters come from all domain fields and include occasional external speakers from regional partners, governmental agencies and industry.
All seminars will be hosted virtually for the 2020-2021 academic year, and are free and open to the public.
