Topic: Data Science beyond the Hype
Data is all the rage and data science itself a much-hyped skill. While a lot of seminal work has happened of late in creating significant value by rigorous application of data science techniques in many areas of human life, popular media has tended to extrapolate from early stage prototypes or niche applications to exaggerated visions of what the future holds for entire industries. This talk provides a practical view of data science for early-stage engineers looking to make a foray into this exciting specialization. The talk argues that data science is by no means the most important skill but is indeed one of few core skill sets that are needed to make a difference. The talk explores the question of what does it take for data to bring value for a business and the role that early (and even experienced) engineers play in shaping such applications, in the form of anecdotes accumulated through the last 12 years of doing massive-scale data science across the world.
