USD Students Present Research at State Capitol
Talia DeWitte and Hugo Morvan were two of 10 students to present their research on Feb. 7 in Pierre.
DeWitte, a senior double majoring in elementary education and special education, presented her research on the effectiveness of repeated reading strategies in extended school year sessions.
“It was such an amazing experience to present in Pierre, as I got the chance to share a little piece of my passion for education and research with fellow researchers and legislators,” DeWitte said. “In addition, it was so amazing to learn from the other students and professors there; there is a lot of amazing research being done in a variety of fields, from sustainability to artificial intelligence.”
Morvan, a senior majoring in computer science, presented his research about the potential for artificial intelligence (AI) to be used as a tool in detecting COVID-19.
“Presenting my research at the Capitol was a great opportunity for me to promote the benefits of applied AI tools to the legislators of South Dakota,” Morvan said. “I think these technologies have the potential to help all across South Dakota in many different areas, including medical diagnosis and agriculture.”
