ACM and the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS) have launched an exciting new joint venture to propel data science and to engage and energize our communities to work together. Computing and statistics underpin the rapid emergence of data science as a pivotal academic discipline, and ACM and IMS are the two key academic organizations in these areas. The first event will be the ACM-IMS Interdisciplinary Summit on the Foundations of Data Science on June 15, 2019 in San Francisco.

This full-day launch event will bring together distinguished speakers and panelists addressing topics such as deep learning, reinforcement learning, fairness, and ethics, in addition to discussions about the future of data science and the role of ACM and IMS.
