To and Through Data Science

In this talk, Jimmy will be telling the story of his journey to, then through Data Science, starting from his finance/accounting days (Symantec, 2013), all the way until the present day (2022, Sr. Data Scientist at LinkedIn). He will touch on highs, lows, moments of triumph and setbacks, and working full-time/doing a Masters part-time for 7 years. He hopes to share with the audience some wisdom that he has gained on this journey and leave them with some words of encouragement (that persistence and a good attitude are some of the best tools you can have in any pursuit of life).

Read, Write, Think Data

The process we follow when working with data is just as important as the tools we're using. In this presentation, Ben Jones of Data Literacy will give you an overview of a new tool-agnostic framework that powers his company's recently launched training program, Data Literacy Level 2: Working Effectively with Data, and the accompanying book "Read, Write, Think Data" (coming soon)! By the end of the webinar, you'll be equipped with an understanding of The WISDOM Data-Working Flow, which you can use to pose suitable questions about your data, form hypotheses that can be tested, and convert raw data into the wisdom you need to make sound decisions at work and in life. This new framework was developed by Ben Jones, CEO of Data Literacy, award-winning data visualization designer, best-selling data author, and Professor of Data Visualization at the University of Washington. This new framework is applicable to all experience levels and useful to anyone who interacts with data and must use data to make decisions.

R and Python: the best of both worlds

One of the most common data science questions is what language beginners should learn, R or Python. This has led to a rivalry between the two languages, termed the "Language War". The purpose of this talk is to announce that this rivalry is over, and we are entering a new era. We'll go through the main defining features of both languages (influenced by their history) and how they compare between different workflows in data science (i.e., data visualization, machine learning) and data types (i.e., text, image, or time series). As a final element, I'll show what methods are available for combining both in the same workspace and demonstrate this with a case study. At the end of the talk, you'll be able to appreciate why being bilingual is essential for a modern data scientist and what are the best ways to get started.

The T Shaped Data Scientist - How going deep and broad can be your secret to success

Many people believe that you have to either be a specialist or a generalist. An expert or a jack-or-jill of all trades. But those who can do both, who can balance these seemingly contradictory beliefs, consistently outperform. Matt Coatney, a C-level technology executive, and AI practitioner talk about his own journey and missteps, and how a multi-disciplinary approach including deep technical expertise and core skills led him to personal and professional success.

Translating Data into Effective Decisions

In this talk Daniel will present a systematic process where ML is an input to improve our ability to make better decisions, thereby taking us closer to the prescriptive ideal.  In a nutshell, this process starts by clearly identifying the KPI or metric that we want to improve (eg. revenue).  This metric itself may not be actionable, so we may have to decompose it into actionable metrics.
