Data science is having a growing effect on our lives, from the content we see on social media feeds to the decisions businesses are making. Along with successes, data science has inspired much hype about what it is and what it can do. So I plan to try and demystify data science and have a discussion about what it really is. What does a day-in-the-life look like? What tools and skills are needed? How is data science successfully applied in the real world? In this talk, I’ll be providing insight into these questions and also speculate the future of data science and its place in business and technology.
