VITAL Data Series

VITAL Data Series: Video, Image, Text, Audio, and Learning

Sign up for any of these VITAL events by visiting this page.

The new VITAL series concerns the analysis of Video, Image, Text, Audio, or Learning (VITAL) data. In it we will be exploring use cases and techniques across disciplines in each of these fundamental types of data. This is an effort to break down barriers across disciplines and bridge solutions across sectors including industry, academia, government, and non-profits.

The VITAL series is being developed by the South Hub Community Engagement working group. To participate or to become a speaker please contact: Dr. Renata Rawlings-Goss Co-Executive Director of the South Big Data Hub at rrawlingsgoss@gatech.edu and cc: shalbert@southbdhub.org
