Data. It’s not how much you collect but what you do with it.
Have you ever asked yourself:
- How can a non-data expert sift through massive data without getting overwhelmed in the process?
- How can a non-data expert leverage existing data to dig up the unknowns and the unknowables, especially for business development?
- When is data most usable so that organisations like startups (running on limited time and resources) can build and ship products at a time when people need it the most and are willing to pay for a problem to go away?
So come to our August Raid The Fridge and meet Reina Reyes: a data scientist and astrophysicist. She will help sharpen our understanding of data science by deconstructing it three-ways: (i) its benefits; (ii) the business environment needed for data science to work; and (iii) some general hacks on data science for non-experts.
REMEMBER THE DATE: August 18th --- we're re-stocking the fridge, do come over and help us empty it! And say hello to Reina, swap updates with old friends, and make some new friends (over a drink or two)!
