ACM stated in its award letter that “ACM’s Distinguished Speaker Program (DSP) is a highly visible way that ACM, through the appointment of leading researchers, engages with emerging professionals, students and, in some cases, the public on a range of topics in computing.”

Suthaharan’s research in data science, big data, and machine learning, and his recent book entitled “Machine Learning Models and Algorithms for Big Data Classification: Thinking with Examples for Effective Learning” – published by Springer – made significant contributions to the emerging interdisciplinary field of data science. His course – CSC 510 – Big Data and Machine Learning – at UNCG has been listed as a full semester course with the courses from Stanford, Purdue, MIT, and UC-Berkeley at http:/www.soihub.org/resources/learning-hub-main/. He is currently writing another book on data science – a highly suitable textbook for emerging data analysts and data scientists.
