Penn State Great Valley is expanding its reach in the data analytics world by joining the Qlik Academic Program -- a partnership that includes a software donation of the state-of-the-art data analytics platform Qlik Sense.
A new partnership between Penn State and the convenience store chain Sheetz will provide education benefits to the company’s employees, an initiative aimed at helping the employees complete their college degrees.
The Penn State community is invited to virtually attend the Nittany AI Challenge Celebration, where nine student teams will present their minimum viable product for a chance to share in the remaining pool of $25,000 in funding. Saqib Shaikh, software engineering manager and project lead for the Seeing AI project at Microsoft, will be the keynote speaker. The event will take place from 6-7:30 p.m. Sept. 25 via Zoom.
Penn State has launched an integrated effort to remind faculty, staff and students at all campuses and in adjacent communities of the importance of doing their part to limit the spread of COVID-19. “Mask Up or Pack Up” is a research-based campaign that is also launched in State College to create a seamless message for students and other members of the community.
Two teams of Great Valley students advanced to the second phase of the Nittany AI Challenge, with one receiving funding for the final round. The teams expand on their classroom knowledge by using cutting-edge AI technologies.
The campus is expanding its reach in the artificial intelligence community with the membership. Students and faculty will have opportunities to collaborate with other members on open source AI projects.
