Introducing Minds, Brains, & Machines
NYU Minds, Brains, and Machines is a new campus initiative to focus research and educational opportunities around these topics. The project was initiated by FAS Dean Antonio Merlo via a FAS-wide conference about the relationship between human and machine intelligence. Current priorities includes a hiring cluster which connects several academics units at NYU including Psychology, the Center for Data Science, the Center for Neural Science, and the Flatiron Institute.

Yeah, yeah, data science is a science and an art: But what does that really mean and why does it matter? | CDS Guest Editorial by Andrea Jones-Rooy
This entry is a part of the NYU Center for Data Science blog’s recurring guest editorial series. Andrea Jones-Rooy, Ph.D., is the Director of Undergraduate Studies and a Visiting Associate Professor at CDS. They are a data scientist and standup comedian.
Vasant Dhar, Professor of Information Systems at Stern and CDS associated faculty, invited Daniel Kahneman, winner of the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences and co-author of Noise: A Flaw Within Human Judgement, to his podcast, A Brave New World. They sat down in a studio in New York to discuss why noise arises in human judgment and how we can address it.
