U of T applied computing student is part of a new wave of data scientists

It was Vincent Tembo‘s keen interest in artificial intelligence, machine learning and the University of Toronto’s ground-breaking work in deep learning that led him to come here.

“I’d been doing research. But I wanted to do something that was more directly applicable to the real world.”

Tembo is one of 58 students who entered U of T’s master of science in applied computing program last month. The program has seen remarkable growth since its inception in 2010, when it first enrolled six students. Following eight months of graduate course work, the students will embark on an eight-month applied research internship, in which they will use their research and development skills to help solve industry problems.

Tembo will also be able to add “data scientist” to his credentials.
