In Georgia, where agriculture has a $72 billion economic impact, farmers are turning to ground-breaking technology from IBM to help meet ever-increasing food production demands and leading the way in conservation measures, improving agricultural efficiency by up to 20 percent.
The Flint River Partnership, which includes the Flint River Soil and Water Conservation District, USDA's Natural Resources Conservation Service and The Nature Conservancy, together with the University of Georgia and IBM are assisting farmers in Georgia's Lower Flint River Basin, the epicenter of agriculture in Georgia, helping them make more informed irrigation scheduling decisions in order to improve crop yield, conserve water and mitigate the impact of future droughts.

Data Science involves the design and collection of large-scale data, as well as instrumentation, protection and analysis of the data. As such, it draws on a number of disciplines and sciences — the social sciences, to understand data about people, their behaviors, and the decisions they make; operations research and the statistical sciences, including machine learning to conduct large-scale analyses and draw inferences from them; and the computing sciences, to provide the principles that guide data management and design of distributed systems.
This panel provides a glimpse into exciting data science research and development activities at leading technology firms, into research initiatives in this area from both a US and an international perspective, and into the unique Carnegie Mellon multi-disciplinary approach to research and education as it pertains to data science.
Opening Remarks: Subra Suresh, Carnegie Mellon University
Moderator: Ramayya Krishnan, Carnegie Mellon University
Yuichiro Anzai, Japan Society for the Promotion of Science
Anuj Dhanda, Giant Eagle, Inc.
Stephen Fienberg, Carnegie Mellon University

Internet of Things
Kickstarter has seen much activity and show much public demand for smart, intelligent and connected devices with services that are very specific. This is also true on the industrial side. Is this what will happen when mobile meets cloud and hardware prices drop to almost nothing?
MSV is an international conference that serves researchers, scholars, professionals, students, and academicians who are looking to both foster working relationships and gain access to the latest research results. It is being held jointly (same location and dates) with a number of other research conferences; namely, The 2013 World Congress in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, and Applied Computing (WORLDCOMP). The Congress is the largest annual gathering of researchers in computer science, computer engineering and applied computing. We anticipate to have 2,100 or more attendees from over 85 countries.
