Cocktail with Dean Widom

Dean Widom has been a pioneering computer scientist in databases and big data before the term big data was coined. Her research group’s contribution to software in the public domain has had a large impact on industry in both data management and analysis tools.

In an age where not just engineering disciplines but practically all disciplines are being transformed by AI and big data, Dean Widom will share with us the latest happenings and strategic direction of Stanford’s School of Engineering.
