San Antonio 1+2

In her presentation, Dr. Basu will combine two of her passions – data science and working for social good — to illustrate how advanced analytics can help drive Diversity & Inclusion. Sarmila will draw on her work to show how data science (predictive modeling in particular) can help identify students or employees facing conditions that increase the likelihood of attrition, and how early intervention can help increase graduation or retention rates. She will also discuss how data science can be used to detect subtle biases and implement processes to address these biases and improve retention.
