International Research Visitors


This year, we hosted Scarlett Kelly, a student of Dalhousie University (Canada) from May to the end of August. Her internship was funded by a joint Mitacs Globalink (Canada) / Inria grant. Scarlett Kelly is a student of social sciences, thus she has a different profile that the computer science students who usually do internships at LACODAM. We were interested in such profile in order to gain a critical view on the current approaches of interactive data mining. Scarlett quickly picked up the literature of the domain, and could write a report and make interesting propositions that were unexpected from a computer science point of view, i.e., introduce a specially trained "data liaison" person between practitioners and data scientists. Her proposition led to a paper [14] accepted at the HICSS conference (an IT conference ranked “A” at CORE2017).
