Big Data Talks (Data Science & Technology) (Introductory)

Friday, 3 November, 2017 - 14:00 to 15:15

The Big Data hype shows no signs of waning and the associated skill shortage is well publicised. In this session Joy and Louise will guide delegates towards an understanding of the value that data science brings to an organisation. We explore the relationship between the data, the code and the science and what a well-rounded career in the data space entails.

By the end of this session, delegates will:
• Experience a practical use case and explore the thinking that makes data science work.
• Understand why big data is so important in our digital age
• Be empowered with tips and tools to take advantage of opportunities to learn.
