Jeff Heer delivered a terrific luncheon keynote at today’s UW CSE Industry Affiliates meeting. Representatives from more than 100 member companies have joined us for a day of technical discussions, followed by an evening open house that adds regional alums to the mix. The meeting also includes a recruiting day for startups, and a recruiting day for established companies. See the complete agenda here.
Jeff was one of four phenomenal hires in data science in Spring 2012; he and his wife – Daniela Rosner, a faculty member in UW’s Department of Human-Centered Design and Engineering – arrived this fall.
