Big Data Ignite starts a month-long webinar series
today. Participation is free, but requires registration. You can

There are many interesting presentations scheduled. Here are a few of them that come early in the series and might be especially interesting to students. Full titles and abstracts appear below (and at bigdataignite.org)
10/7: Looks like this talk will use methods that might be familiar to you from statistics and data science classes. The application area may be of interest as well.
10/12: The speaker has been involved in various “data for good” projects for a long time. This particular talk is about disproportional impact of COVID-19 on marginalized communities
10/14: Michael Bloem is a Calvin University alum currently working at Amazon. He is going to give some reflections on his data science career so far. This could be especially interesting to data science majors who want a glimpse into a possible future. Also, Michael is a very good presenter.
