Join CSTM virtually for our Day 1 Keynote, featuring Robert Domanski, Ph.D., Director of Higher Education at the New York City Tech Talent Pipeline.
As Director of Higher Education, Rob oversees the "CUNY 2x Tech" initiative – a $20 million dollar investment in the City University of New York (CUNY) to double the university's number of Computer Science graduates within five years and connect those graduates to jobs in the field. The initiative has the dual goals of economic development and workforce development: building the local pool of tech talent to grow the NYC tech industry and connecting New Yorkers to high-quality tech jobs. Rob is also a former professor of both Computer Science and Political Science at the City University of New York. His academic research focuses on Digital Government, Internet Governance, and the Politics of Algorithms. He has recently published on the specific subtopics of Algorithmic Bias and Artificial Intelligence from technical, policy, and ethical perspectives.
