Who needs to introduce Dr Gregory Piatetsky-Shapiro? If you ever had an interest in any of the various names Data Science has taken within the last two decades (knowledge discovery, data mining, data analytics, etc.), you must have landed on his research papers and on KDnuggets.com, which he created in 1993.
His academic and professional work, his influence, along with creating the Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining (KDD) conferences, makes him one of the “Founding Fathers” of Data Science.
Gregory, who has made us the honour of accepting to be a Honorary Member of our Scientific Advisory Board, will come once a year to both our campuses, for giving a day of talks and exchange with our students.
Although being the nice person you’ll come across (and a keen francophile), get ready to be star-struck!
