Data Science at NASA
Nikunj Oza is the leader of the Data Sciences Group at NASA Ames Research Center. He also leads a NASA project team that researches and applies machine learning to aviation
safety and operations. Dr. Oza’s 50+ research papers represent his research interests, which include data mining, machine learning, ensemble learning, anomaly detection, and their applications to Aeronautics and Earth Science. He received the Arch T. Colwell Award for co-authoring one of the five most innovative technical papers selected from 3300+ SAE technical papers in 2005. His data mining team received the 2018 and 2019 NASA Honor Awards and the 2010 NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate Associate Administrators Award. In 2019, he was named by Cognilytica as one of 50 key
people in the US government working to move the adoption of AI forward across the industry. He is an Associate Editor for the peer-reviewed journal Information Fusion (Elsevier) and has served as organizer, senior program committee member, and program committee member of many data mining and machine learning conferences. He received his B.S. in Mathematics with Computer Science from MIT in 1994, and M.S. (in 1998) and Ph.D. (in 2001) in Computer Science from the University of California at Berkeley.

In this video we cover
The importance of starting research early, and how research skills will help students in specific subjects in the present, and for the future in areas of problem-solving.
How students can get started on researching a topic that they care about, and the goals and targets in which they can aim to display their project or work with others.
How middle school and high school kids can use AI-based innovations to bring their creativity to life, create distinctive accomplishments for college applications, win science fairs and other competitions, become entrepreneurs, and more.
