The trio’s article stood out among 32 other works from different countries in “Student Research Forum“.

“Great programming”

The work to complete the linear algebra system was carried out under the guidance of Professor Alexandre Garcia de Oliveira. He explained to g1 The proposal is to take numerical columns and transform them to reduce the dimensions, but without changing the initial statistical properties.

“Think of an Excel table with 300 columns and many rows. The work will be slow, do you agree with me? There is a lot of data to work with, it requires a lot of memory and it becomes more difficult,” the teacher said.

The work came first in the financial panel discussion entitled “Sustainable Development and the New Dimension in Finance and Accounting,” and second in the general presentation of the meeting. Selected articles will be published in SCMS 2024 Annual Research Journal.

The remaining feelings for Thalita are joy, gratitude and the desire to seek more. “The faculty always encourages students to write scientific articles, but sometimes we don't know how far we can go. This year, we want to do more, we have other focus points, and other countries as well.
