CCT Spring 2022 Symposium:
Celebrating Computational Thinking
Thursday, March 3, 2022, 1:00 - 5:10 PM (Eastern Time)
1:00 - 1:15 PM: The Future of Computational Thinking at Duke
In this informal conversation, Duke leadership including special guest Provost Kornbluth will discuss the future of computational thinking at Duke.
1:15 - 1:55 PM: AI Health: What Does ‘Ethical and Equitable Data Science’ Mean?
Duke AI Health is focused on developing, evaluating, and implementing data science and artificial intelligence applications for health and healthcare at Duke and beyond, focusing on ethical and equitable data science. In this discussion, we’ll discuss short case studies to illustrate the challenge and potential of computational thinking applied to medicine, healthcare delivery, and the health of individuals and communities.

2:00 – 2:45 PM: Computation-Empowered Science
Computation-empowered science has led to extraordinary research and results in the last century. In this discussion, Duke experts will discuss the future potential, challenges, and opportunities in this landscape.
2:45 – 2:55 PM: The Digital Intelligence Certificate:
How Does Computational Thinking Impact Our World?
Unprecedented access to data, computing, and technology is transforming our world and our concept of a liberal arts education. Regardless of undergraduate discipline, all Duke University students’ futures will be influenced by the interrelationship between computation, data, technology, industry, governments, and society. The Digital Intelligence Certificate is an interdisciplinary pedagogical program that will prepare students for this complex future.
3:00 – 3:55 PM: The Computational Humanities
Computational humanities explore the computational revolution, and its implications for how we live, think, work, create, and communicate within and across various disciplines. In this session we’ll talk about some of the ongoing work and community within Duke.

4:00 – 4:55 PM: Innovating Computational Education
In a series of lightning talks, faculty will share how they are creating learning experiences and innovating in their teaching to broaden access to computational education across Duke. The session will also include a “Question and Answer” discussion on what we can learn from these experiments and scale innovation across the curriculum.
Akshay Bareja, DPhil, Assistant Professor of Medicine
Mine Çetinkaya-Rundel, PhD, Professor of the Practice, Statistical Science

5:00 – 5:10 PM: Winners of the 2022 AI for Art Competition
Using algorithms to generate art promotes deeper understanding of the ways that artificial intelligence (AI) is changing the visual and media-based world around us and provokes inquiry into the endeavor and humanity behind creativity. The 2022 Duke AI for Art Competition is a forum for artworks generated by artificial intelligence methods, systems, networks and algorithms. During this final segment of the symposium we’ll announce the winners of the competition with discussion of their art and its generation.
- Art show competition winners (to be announced)
- Augustus Wendell, MFA, Assistant Professor of the Practice of Art, Art History & Visual Studies (moderator)
