Joined editorial board of Big Data

Finally, some new avenues are opening for publishing work on analytics and big data that are not necessarily statistics journals, machine learning journals, or operations research journals. One such avenue is Big Data, an open-access peer-reviewed journal with Vasant Dhar as editor-in-chief. I'm glad to join the editorial board.

A joyful event with lots of group photos, balloons, and peppy music.

Introducing two new business analytics courses in Taiwan

This Fall, I'm teaching two new elective courses at NTHU's Institute of Service Science: Business Analytics using Data Mining and Business Analytics using Forecasting. The two new courses join three existing elective courses to form the new concentration in Business Analytics. The most important part is our focus on humane and socially responsible analytics. All our courses are 18-weeks long, with 3-hour weekly sessions. Sufficient time to absorb, experience, and learn!
To learn more, read my blog post.
