Krenicki Center for Business Analytics and Machine Learning introduces monthly webinar series
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The John and Donna Krenicki Center for Business Analytics and Machine Learning in Purdue University's Krannert School of Management will begin hosting a monthly webinar series that brings together speakers from academia and industry to talk about different topics of interest.
The first of the series, scheduled for 3-4 p.m. (EDT) July 14, will focus on two important and current issues.
Tom Aliff, senior vice president of Equifax, will discuss the economic and credit- trending elements and impacts of COVID-19. Krannert professor Karthik Kannan will address the notion of unfairness/bias that can creep into machine learning algorithms as analytics are increasingly used.
Kannan is Purdue's Thomas Howatt Chaired Professor in Management and director of the John and Donna Krenicki Center for Business Analytics and Machine Learning. The center is used for conducting research, student-led consulting projects, conferences and competitions.
“Our center connects businesses with Purdue researchers to find answers to data-driven business challenges,” Kannan says. “We team faculty and graduate students from science, engineering, agriculture and management to utilize business data analytics to solve deep specialized problems."
