From food and phones to cars and the way we deliver healthcare, advanced analytics and artificial intelligence are changing the way innovation happens and how business is conducted around the world. The technological advances are changing Indiana’s economy at an unprecedented pace, driving significant investments by the state’s industry and research universities to ensure they stay ahead of the curve.
Companies around the world are in need of a diverse and large talent pool, including a number that have been trained at our nationally recognized university programs. How have our universities kept up with this evolving landscape from investments to enable research to changes in curriculum? How can we connect talent from Indiana and around the world to opportunities here in the state of Indiana? In the next Frameworx session on Feb. 18, 2020, we’ll hear from Indiana University, Purdue University and University of Notre Dame on their capabilities, investments and programs to support talent pipelines in data analytics and artificial intelligence. And, we’ll learn from Ascend Indiana on ways in which talent can get connected to opportunities.
