Data Scientist is the "sexiest job of the 21st century", according to Harvard Business Review.
"Big data lives in the cloud. It knows what we do." - Pointy-haired boss. Despite the hype surrounding big data and where it's stored, data scientists know that the size of your data doesn't matter. It's all about what you do with it. This workshop represents the first step towards improving your data literacy and seeing through the hype and buzzwords.
Data Science is a core essential for modern businesses yet not all companies or products know what is needed to add a data discipline that will help drive their vision. There are some “must haves” before a business can consider incorporating advanced machine learning techniques and dive into prescriptive analytics, which ultimately improve the bottom line. The Data Scientists at Pivotal Labs help to demystify data science in a workshop covering these topics.
The goal of this workshop is to give you a taste of data science in the context of your business and company. In addition to defining what it actually is, the main tools in the data scientist's toolbox will be introduced through examples and case studies.
Bixel Exchange, Pivotal Labs and General Assembly are production partners for this event.
