Barrett student Kylel Scott influences research of robotics in business
Kylel Scott, a senior in Barrett, The Honors College majoring in engineering at the Arizona State University Polytechnic campus, was working on ideas for his honors thesis when he realized he had questions and couldn’t find the answers. He wanted to know more about machine learning and data analytics and how those ideas related to robotics. He had reached the end of his research capabilities. He needed help.
Scott sent an email to every professor at ASU with machine learning in their bios, about 30 emails total.
The response Scott got from one professor resulted in him successfully completing his honors research and defending his thesis. It also led Assistant Professor of Information Systems Victor Benjamin to a first of its kind research project.
Scott, who is participating in the 4+1 program, will graduate next year with both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in engineering. He also earned a business data analytics certificate from the W. P. Carey School of Business.
