Computing enables and empowers new methods of information processing that have led to
monumental change across disciplines, from art to business to science. Managing and
interpreting an overwhelming amount of raw data is part of the foundation of our information
society and economy. People use computers and computation to translate, process, and visualize
raw data, enabling new understandings that in turn contribute new knowledge to the world.
For this task, you and a partner will research and work with data that is of interest to you. You
will use appropriate computational tools and techniques to transform the raw data into
information and knowledge.
