Data science is the hottest field to be in right now, and Silver is its poster child. But for most people, the gulf between recognizing the importance of data and actually beginning to analyze it is massive.

Gordon Research Conferences For students, by students… GRC provides many opportunities for early-career scientists to get involved at the Frontiers of Science, the most notable of which is the Gordon Research Seminar (GRS) program. Gordon Research Seminars are a series of highly successful and unique meetings that enable young researchers to share in the GRC experience. Each seminar is held in conjunction with a related GRC and begins the weekend immediately prior to the GRC. Graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education come together in a highly-stimulating and non-intimidating environment to discuss their current research and build informal networks with their peers that may lead to a lifetime of collaboration and scientific achievement.
