Cornelius Vanderbilt Professor of Engineering, Vanderbilt University
Dr. Douglas C. Schmidt is the Cornelius Vanderbilt Professor of Computer Science, Associate Provost for Research Development and Technologies, Co-Chair of the Data Science Institute and a Senior Researcher at the Institute for Software Integrated Systems, all at Vanderbilt University.
Dr. Schmidt’s research covers a range of software-related topics, including patterns, optimization techniques and empirical analyses of frameworks and model-driven engineering tools that facilitate the development of mission-critical middleware for distributed real-time embedded (DRE) systems and mobile cloud computing applications running over wireless/wired networks and embedded system interconnects. He has published 12 books and more than 600 technical papers — many in top conferences and journals. He has mentored and graduated over 40 Ph.D. and master’s degree students. Dr. Schmidt received B.A. and M.A. degrees in Sociology from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Virginia, and M.S. and a Ph.D. degrees in Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine (UCI) in 1984, 1986, 1990, and 1994, respectively.
Data Science is an interdisciplinary subject exploiting and researching methods and tools from statistics, multiple application domains, and computer science to process data, structured or unstructured, in order to gain meaningful insights, knowledge and predictive analytics. Today, one can almost guarantee every scientist and engineer will consistently come into contact with data, no matter the […]
