ISU/CAES professor Kerby part of winning team at hackathon

Idaho State University and Center for Advanced Energy Studies Assistant Professor Leslie Kerby was on the winning team of the IEEE Big Data, IEEE Brain Hackathon at COMPSAC 2018 in Tokyo.

“It was fun to apply my data science skills to a real-world problem, in real-time, and be recognized as doing an excellent job at it,” Kerby said in an ISU news release.

IEEE is the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers and COMPSAC stands for Computer Society Signature Conference on Computers, Software and Applications. The theme for COMPSAC 2018, held in July, was “Staying Smarter in a Smartening World.”

The objective of the Hackathon was to address the “Big Data” variety challenges in a smartening world. Big Data is a collection of data that is incredibly large, complex, distributed, and fast-growing. It has been known for unlocking new sources of economic values, providing fresh insights into sciences, and assisting on policy making. However, Big Data is not practically consumable until it can be aggregated and integrated into a manner that a computer system can process, according to the IEEE.
