Friday’s signing ceremony for ‘Big Data’ partnership is open to all

UW-Green Bay students will benefit from a new institutional partnership with Green Bay-based technology firm Aver Informatics that will bring hands-on opportunities with “Big Data” and advanced data analytics to the Computer Science curriculum. Aver, a startup company with national clients in the fast-developing field of health care analytics, has agreed to donate to the University a license, database access, training and other services. (We’ll have more info on the deal in our next issue.) Provost Julia Wallace and Kurt Brenkus, Aver Informatics CEO, will sign a memorandum of understanding at 1:30 p.m. Friday (March 28) in the 1965 Room of the University Union. RSVPs aren’t required, but Brenda Beck would appreciate notice at BeckB@uwgb.edu or ext. 2368.
