In May 2022, the DePaul Center for Data Science in collaboration with Global Engagement hosted a group of Korean students from Hanyang University in Seoul as part of the Data Science South Korea/US Global Lab (DSKUS), which is supported by a grant from the United States Embassy in Seoul (via the US State Department). Prof. Raffaella Settimi and Prof. Ilyas Ustun were the DePaul co-principal investigators (Co-PIs) for the project.
DSKUS Global Lab is a cross-national project between Hanyang University (the project lead), DePaul University, and Indiana University. During the spring 2022 term, a group of twenty students from the three universities worked together to solve unique data science challenges tackling international policy issues of interest to both the US and South Korea. As part of the cultural exchange component of this program, students from Hanyang University visited Chicago for a week in May 2022 and the US students traveled to Seoul in June. During their stay in Chicago, the Korean students learned about innovative applications of data science and AI from university researchers and industry leaders, including data scientists from Microsoft, IBM and The Home Depot. We are excited to announce that the program is running again in this year, starting in March 2023.
