We want to create the first community focused on data science...

(and the subsets thereof, i.e. machine learning and statistics) on the USC campus, and make coveted skills available to undergrads of all experience levels. Students can learn via real-world company datasets from a wide array of industries. In doing so, we will connect passionate and diverse students with employers.
