“One of the greatest challenges for 21st-century science is how we respond to this new era of data-intensive science. This is recognized as a new paradigm beyond experimental and theoretical research and computer simulations of natural phenomena—one that requires new tools, techniques, and ways of working.” -Douglas Kell, University of Manchester
The 4th Paradigm is a student organization at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado. We’re focused on giving students the opportunity to tackle real-world problems using a data-driven approach.
Our organization is brand new - founded in the fall of 2018 by students in CSU’s new Data Science major. The founders of the 4th Paradigm want to build a community of thinkers and problem solvers that connects students of all kinds to the greatest challenges of the 21st century.
The 4th Paradigm is an organization built on learning. All of our members are participating because they want to learn, and we are going to create a culture that helps supports that goal. We want every member to have plenty of opportunity to be a learner as well as a teacher and become closer to the community at CSU.
Interested in using very large datasets to gain insights into behavior and patterns. Discovering utility in enormous datasets will be awesome in the future world of big data. (I know you're watching, NSA, FBI, and CIA... also Google. Please hire me someday.)
Interested in participating in the new frontier of technology!
