Research event next week at DSU

Dakota State University is hosting its annual Research Week next week. Events will feature student research, and a keynote speaker with an international perspective on AI and machine learning.

Dr. Stacey Berry, Professor and Coordinator of Undergraduate Research, says the university is always looking for ways to help students create new knowledge in and out of class. The  Undergraduate Student Mentored Research Initiative, or SRI, provides opportunities for student researchers to participate in learning experiences outside of the classroom.

The students will showcase their results on Wednesday, March 22, at the Research Symposium, through posters and presentations. The public is welcome to attend the event, held in the Beacom Collaboration space from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The community is also invited to campus on Thursday, March 23, to hear from Research Week keynote speaker Dr. Staffan Truvé. There will be a reception at 5 p.m., and the presentation at 5:30 p.m. He will be addressing artificial intelligence and machine learning in international communities.

Throughout the week, about 70 doctoral students will also be on campus for Residency Week. Activities will include doctoral dissertation defenses, program meetings, and a selection of guests discussing topics ranging from doctoral program progression to research themes in their field.
