James Shanahan, Ph.D., to lead Bryant University Data Science Initiative
"If one looks to the future impact of rapid advances in Artificial Intelligence (AI), robotics, block chain, the 'internet of things,' and other emerging technologies, it is clear that higher education must take the lead in preparing graduates for the many challenges and opportunities these developments will create," says Bryant University President Ronald K. Machtley.
"I am honored to be joining the Bryant University faculty," says Shanahan. "The workforce of the future will require constant up-skilling, and employee digital dexterity will outweigh tenure and experience. Bryant recognizes this and is well-positioned to prepare its students with the technical and critical thinking skills needed to successfully compete in the digital marketplace."
"Jeanne and I have been delighted to help Bryant University because it does so much to help young people acquire the skills that make them productive in today's ever changing society," says John Rowe '01H. "We are especially pleased that Bryant's first Rowe Professor, Dr. James Shanahan, is expert in the rapidly moving fields of big data and artificial intelligence. Sorting the real from the fantastic in these areas will be a vital part of tomorrow's education."
