SPRINT Week 1 Recap – Looking Forward to Week 2!

The first week of HAMS’ SPRINT 2016 was a huge success! We had great turnout at all three of our talks, as we featured data scientist Michael Chen from Facebook, Harvard SEAS Professor David Parkes, and senior fellow Jim Tung from Mathworks! Everyone enjoyed great food and snacks as they listened to very informative talks from all three speakers, gaining invaluable insight into real-world applications of mathematics!
