Dr Hao Hu, Product Engineer with ESRI is the featured speaker and will present on the intersection of Machine Learning and Geographic Information Sciences (GIS) and how ESRI is addressing these opportunities in spatial applications with ArcGIS. Dr Hao Hu is a product engineer in the Geoprocessing/Raster Analysis team at Esri, and works on large raster data processing that leverages distributed computing and storage technology. Before joining Esri, Dr. Hao completed his Doctoral degree in Geography from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) researching on GIS and cyberinfrastructure, spatial decision support system, geospaital data uncertainty, and spatial optimization.
This talk is co-funded by the Provost Funded Data & Computational Science Series (awarded to UC Libraries and IT@UC Research and Development), the Graduate Student Association of UC and the Department of Geography – College of Arts and Science of UC.
The event will be held in 400 A-B TUC from 10 am to 2 pm

Visualization Lab (GMP Library, 240 Braunstein Hall)
11am – 1pm: Lunch & Learn with George Turner, Chief Systems Architect for Research Technologies at the Pervasive Technologies Institute, Indiana University will give an insider’s presentation on research computing in higher education. George has helped build one of the most abundant and successful research centers in the United States and has been assisting the University of Cincinnati to set up its first ever Advanced Research Computing Cluster, now available to UC faculty and students. His talk will address challenges in research computing and HPC and share the benefits that a successful University research computing center can have upon a research institution.
1:30pm – 3:30pm: Linux 101 Workshop: This free workshop will provide a brief introduction on the layout of the Linux operating system. It will overview Linux concepts with a few exercises and will help people to understand the paradigms and why this is important in the bigger scheme of things.
No prerequisites. No scripting. Please Bring a Laptop.
All events are free. Registration is required.
