Undergraduate Research Experiences in Security and Privacy for Mobile Sensing and the Internet of Things

The TSYS School of Computer Science at Columbus State University is pleased to host an NSF CISE REU Site in Security and Privacy for Mobile Sensing and the Internet of Things. In our program, undergraduate students will participate in a 9-week research experience at Columbus State University (Columbus, GA) in researching problems and issues related to security, privacy, authentication, data integrity, and malware for Mobile Sensing and the Internet of Things. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 REU@CSU will be run virtually/online with mentors from CSU.

UofSC National Big Data Health Science Conference

The 2nd Annual Big Data Health Science Case Competition will be held virtually between January 29 – 31, 2021 before the University of South Carolina’s National Big Data Health Science Conference, scheduled for February 5 – 6, 2021. Last year’s winner was Duke University, so it is time for others to compete to dethrone them. The Big Data Case Competition is intended to provide enthusiastic teams of graduate and senior undergraduate students with the opportunity to apply their knowledge to the analysis of big datasets in healthcare. This year’s challenge will focus on solving the inappropriate use of healthcare using a data analytics approach. Each participating team will analyze the case and datasets. During this period, the teams must identify the most prominent issues and develop a strategy to address key issues to help healthcare organizations achieve their goals of reducing inappropriate care utilization. Team members will work together to present their methods, analyses, and results at the Big Data Health Science Center Case Competition virtually. A panel of industry and academic experts will judge the presentations based on each team’s use of full analytics tools/processes, from framing the problem to data use, model building, innovation and communicating the solutions to decision-makers.
