August 27, 2021Using Machine Learning to Analyze and Predict the Movement of Horseshoe Crabs in Long Island Sound

Dr. Samah Senbel, Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Sacred Heart University will be describing her work on developing machine learning models to predict animal movement patterns. Please join us (virtually) on Monday, September 27th at 1pm to learn more about this important area of study in ecology, conservation and wildlife management. Register Now Connection details will be provided after registration. Abstract: Developing models to predict animal movement patterns is an important area of study in ecology, conservation and wildlife management. Models can be used to decipher patterns in mark-recapture data and machine learning can help to make predictions about ... Read More

April 21, 2021MSDS Students at Scholars Week - College Football Recruiting Using Machine Learning Techniques

Colette Barca, Keith Osani, Nisha Srishan, and William “Brady” Wulster are inaugural members of the Master’s in Data Science program. During their MATH 570 Applied Statistics course with Professor Osei Tweneboah, they designed and completed a research project to predict high school football recruits’ college commitments using several Machine Learning techniques. The four designed their project with the understanding that college football is big business. To create a winning team that will continue to generate revenue, Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) Power Five schools need to choose their recruits wisely. Recruits are selected based on certain player attributes. Power ... Read More

January 21, 2021From Data Ethics to Data Justice: The Challenge of Building Better Worlds through Data Science

Dr. Andrea Pitts, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte will be describing this new new branch of study within applied ethics, a subfield in professional ethics that includes areas of research and practice such as computing ethics, media ethics, and biomedical ethics. This new branch of applied ethics responds, specifically, to novel applications and technologies for data storage, maintenance, and processing that add new layers to the study of morally relevant considerations within information ethics, business ethics, and AI ethics, for example.

August 6, 2020MSDS - Fall 2020 Course Delivery Update

As we look forward to the start of our Fall 2020 semester, we wanted to share with you our plans for course delivery starting in September. As you hopefully know, Ramapo College is required to adhere with the State of New Jersey’s phased reopening plan. This plan identifies which activities and classes colleges and universities may conduct on campus, and the precautions we must take. Based on current public health conditions as of August 3rd, NJ is currently still in Phase 2 - which prohibits on-campus meetings for all courses other than laboratory (i.e. biology labs) and studio (i.e. theatre) ...

April 25, 2020MSDS Fall course delivery options related to COVID-19

With uncertainty surrounding the upcoming Fall semester due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we want you to know our contingency plans in case of disruption. All MSDS courses for the Fall 2020 semester are scheduled to be delivered as hybrid courses. This means a large portion of course content will be delivered online, however the course will meet once a week on campus. We’ve scheduled all three MSDS courses to meet on Thursday evenings. There are two scenarios that could alter these plans: Ramapo College converts the Fall 2020 semester to online-only / remote delivery. In the unlikely event this happens, ... Read More
