Demystifying Data Science – FREE Virtual Conference on 9/27

The Economist calls data the new oil… As in, the world’s newest most-valuable resource. We think they might be right.

And it (data) is something that everyone should learn a little about.

The folks at Metis have put together a doozy of a data science conference this week.

And it’s quite the lineup… Speakers include data pros from Facebook, Airbnb, Quora, Accenture Artificial Intelligence, the Philadelphia 76ers, Capital One, Etsy, and more.

Here are just a few of the talks that we’re going to tune in for:

  • The 5 Most Important Things in Data Science
  • Recognizing Cultural Bias in Artificial Intelligence
  • Fixing the Hot Mess: What You’re Doing Wrong to Hire & Get Hired
  • How to Learn Deep Learning When You’re Not a Computer Science Ph.D.

It’s a ton of content, running from 10:00 am – 10:00 pm EDT, so you can catch some or all on a break from classes, or in the evening after the work day.

Again, it’s totally free. It takes place this Wednesday, 9/27.

Register here. And we’ll see you there

The new topics are:

  • Environmental Science & SustainabilityThere are many jobs in the environmental and sustainability fields beyond policy work. Within the private sector, there are opportunities in the timber industry, environmental consulting, conservation and preservation organizations. Within the government, there is work available at the local, state and federal levels that focus on forests, water, and wildlife.
  • NeuroscienceThe “Brain Sciences,” or neuroscience, encompass a wide range of career paths centralized in the research and medical professions, and now permeating across multiple new fields in recent years. Through studying the brain and the nervous system, those who choose a career in neuroscience seek to understand how neurons interact and how these interactions impact behavior. Neuroscience intersects psychology, science, medicine, and impacts the legal system, education, and even marketing. Clearly, neuroscience presents multiple pathways for you to consider.
  • Law & ParalegalThe law profession encompasses a variety of career fields some of which require an advanced degree where others do not. Those interested in the field of law typically pursue careers as lawyers, paralegals/legal assistants, criminal justice (law enforcement, probation officers, and correction officers), social work/justice (family law, juvenile law, elder law and child protective services), public policy, federal government, protective services, detective services and more.
  • Business Intelligence, Analytics & Data ScienceEvery time a customer interacts with a computerized system, whether at a Grocery Store, Online Store, or Social Media site, data is created and stored in a data solution system. Tools then convert this data into metrics (known as analytics) that assess consumer behavior. Analytic professionals interpret analytical data and utilize statistics, predictive modeling, and managerial strategies to drive business decisions. Analytics are used in nearly every industry. Marketing companies use analytics to measure and analyze performance of different initiatives, financial firms use analytics to analyze investments and forecast future scenarios, charter schools use analytical data to inform teaching practices, and major movie studios use analytics to project ticket sales.
