Thanks to all who participated in our December 2015 #DataSciChat, and @KirkBorne for hosting. The data science community was well represented, with participants from around the globe ranging from newbies to distinguished experts interacting with panelists from Booz Allen, Kaggle, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and the American College of Cardiology (ACC).
The discussion covered lots of ground including:
- How and when data science really will solve the world’s problems (Conclusion: Data Science can’t go it alone)
- Data science fads
- Why the ‘social good’ agenda is so deeply entrenched in data science around the world, and inside corporate agendas
- Key tools for a Data Science Bowl win (Key among them: Pure grit, coffee, a sharp monitor, github, and brilliant friends)
Get the full scoop and read the chat here (https://storify.com/BoozAllen/datascichat-2015). All questions are denoted and numbered with a “Q” and answers with an “A” (e.g., Q8 and A8).
