Department of the History of Science, Harvard University


The Department of the History of Science is a lively interdisciplinary community of scholars and students who seek to advance understanding of science, technology, and medicine in their historical and social contexts. 

Our faculty and students come from diverse backgrounds and employ diverse approaches. We examine the past and present workings of science, technology, and medicine, the basis of their authority, the ethical and political dimensions of their regulation and applications, and the relationships among them and larger intellectual, cultural, social, and political trends and changes. Diversity, inclusion, and belonging are fundamental to the Department’s mission and identity, not only as moral and social goods, but because they make possible the advancement of knowledge central to our understanding of history and the world about us.

Career Prospectors – Welcome

Career Prospectors is an organization serving the greater Richmond area, focused on helping people find job opportunities since 2002. Whether relocated, terminated, down sized, or are still working and looking for a new opportunity, all are welcome.

There is no cost at any time to join or attend.

Some of our members have not actively looked for a job in many years, so Career Prospectors presents the latest tactics in searching for and winning a job. At each meeting, we network, discuss what we have done during the past week to further our individual job searches, and offer each other suggestions on how to improve our chances for success.

A critical benefit is the support and encouragement we provide each other throughout the job search. We often have speakers who discuss topics such as how to work with HR people, improving resumes, networking skills, and aimed at winning a new

Data Science | IBM


Data science is the process of using algorithms, methods, and systems to extract knowledge and insights from structured and unstructured data. It uses analytics and machine learning to help users make predictions, enhance optimization, and improve operations and decision making.

Today’s data science teams are expected to answer many questions. Business demands better prediction and optimization based on real-time insights backed by tools for ModelOps and cloud data science.

The data science lifecycle starts with gathering data from relevant sources, cleaning it and putting it in formats that machines can understand. In the next phase, statistical methods and other algorithms are used to find patterns and trends. Then models are programmed and built to predict and forecast; finally, results are interpreted.

Advances in AI, machine learning and automation have raised the standards of data science tools for business. The result is the formation of data science teams — expert data
