The Community of Practice is a culmination of initiatives across multiple years, beginning with the early years of Duke Forge and its demonstration project program, the health data science internship program, and the +DS advanced projects program.

The Community of Practice hosts our annual poster showcase, bringing together members of the Duke community from across many different departments, centers, institutes, and initiatives. The showcase allows Duke to share their work in health data science, a broad discipline including statistics, informatics, machine learning, data engineering, implementation, process engineering, technology development, and applications.

AI Health’s Community of Practice also maintains our strong partnerships with groups across Duke including the Rhodes Information Initiative (iiD) and the Center for Computational Thinking (CCT) program.

We support hands-on quantitative design and collaborative engagement, both within the Duke community and beyond.
