About the Presentation: The last few years have seen a meteoric rise in disciplines related to using and exploring large quantities of data (Big Data), such as Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things. A part of the Artificial Intelligence domain, Machine Learning took hold in many corporations and started impacting the business outcomes. In turn, Project Managers are suddenly facing a different type of project they are asked to manage: the Machine Learning project.

Student Holds

Reminder, as Spring 2020 registration approaches, students are responsible for reviewing their record in GWeb to ensure they do not have any holds on their record. Now is a good time to check and work with appropriate office(s) to remove student holds. If not removed, holds can prevent students from registering, adding or dropping classes, receiving transcripts, obtaining grades, or graduating. Holds are placed on student accounts for various reasons, such as tuition fee due to GW, the need to meet with your advisor, placement on probation, or unmet program requirements.
