“If you tell black Americans how to be, they will not care about you as a black person, they will hate you for being black.

It does not take a political scientist to observe that black racism is deeply rooted, and in some cases more fundamental than previous generations of racism. Many of our students are aware of this. They know “their” history of oppression. They know the horrors experienced by black Americans in the past. At the same time, they are well aware that the black experience of being oppressed is much broader than the present-day experience.

When I began reading Charles W. Pickus, the author of the above quotation, I realized that there was nothing wrong in my viewpoint. After all, as a black woman, I have a unique perspective about the history of black oppression. I have never been a victim. I have never experienced discrimination in school, jobs or relationships. I experienced racism in my community and in most facets of my daily life – but not in a systematic, institutionalized way.

I did not feel oppressed by discrimination, by exclusion, or by any kind or manner of violence that I could point to and identify. The only thing I could think of, was to point out, and I could not speak about anyone else’s experiences because I knew that I was doing this at my own peril.

After reading the article entitled “The Programming”, I thought about Dr.

A $150,000 grant to expand the Healing Racism Institute of Pioneer Valley.

Article Title: A $150,000 grant to expand the Healing Racism Institute of Pioneer Valley | Programming.

In response to an increasing number of racial incidents occurring in recent times, the Pioneer Valley is again being called upon to take the lead in addressing racism in our communities and to provide the leadership on how to address racist behaviors. The proposed grant from the Pioneer Valley is one such effort. The new institute will be a multi-site organization composed of sites in Pioneer Valley and surrounding areas. The goal is to create a safe, non-racist environment in which all visitors will feel free to freely celebrate their racial ancestry while respecting others.

The Healing Racism Institute will offer training to groups of people in a variety of educational groups including classes for those that are planning to return to Pioneer Valley and for those who have never been to Pioneer Valley. In addition, individuals and organizations in the Pioneer Valley will have access to the Training Program offered by the Healing Racism Institute. The training will help individuals and communities in the Pioneer Valley determine appropriate responses to racist incidents and ensure that all residents and visitors of Pioneer Valley are free to celebrate their race without feeling stigmatized.

What: The healing racism institute will be providing trainings to individuals and organizations in the Pioneer Valley, as well as having training programs available for those that will be returning to Pioneer Valley or for those that have never been to Pioneer Valley.

Where: The Healing Racism Institute will be at the Family and Friends Center in Fonda in Pioneer Valley. The institute will also be at other locations throughout Pioneer Valley throughout the year.

Who; Individuals, families, and groups of people that wish to participate in the training programs, those that already have in place policies and practices to handle racist behaviors, and those that wish to be trained to be a leader in Pioneer Valley.

Why: The need to educate people about racism in Pioneer Valley will become even more important as a variety of racial issues arise including the issues surrounding the growing number of African Americans moving to and living in the Pioneer Valley and the rising racist incidents that make the Pioneer Valley the most unsafe place to live in the United States today.

What: The healing racism institute will provide training to groups of people for a variety of educational groups including classes for those that are planning to return to Pioneer Valley and for those who have never been to Pioneer Valley.

A conversation with Luis Fieldman

Luis Fieldman is Senior Software Engineer in the Computer Science Department at Harvard. His research deals with algorithms and systems, their security and resilience, and the intersection of algorithms and data mining. He is currently the chair of the Data Mining Research Collaboration (DMRC), which is a highly collaborative group within the International Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery Research Consortium (IDMKRDC). He is also the recipient of the 2016 IEEE-RAS-Data Mining Award.

The first two years of the project were spent writing the “Famous People in Data Mining” paper, which is a collection of interviews with the most important data miners, their work, a bit about what they’d like to do, and the challenges they’d have dealing with. I then put that to work on another big project with my group called “Data Mining and Systems”. We worked on some of the most well-known and successful data mining systems including: R, Krippendorff’s Linear Regression, LIME, and the famous R/DM system.

“Data Mining and Systems” focused on both the process and the techniques used in data mining. I wanted to do a better job at articulating when researchers have applied “big data” techniques, which is often described as “big” to “fame”. For example, “it’s the data mining that got data scientist Bill Gates interested in data mining!”.

As you can see from my previous interview with Chris Al�mann (and his interview with me), I have an incredibly good grasp of the work being done by data miners. I also think that the work I have done and talk about today, “is more akin to that which is done by a researcher than what happens in a company,” which is the approach I’d like to continue to pursue.

Data Mining and Systems has two main goals: first, to share the knowledge between data miners and information science researchers, and second, to encourage these researchers in the rest of the world to share their research results in a more open way. As many in the industry have told me “there is no bigger company than your company.
