Critical Thinking & Data Science: Conversations with Debbie Berebichez, Metis Chief Data Scientist

By Metis  • April 01, 2019

As a physicist, TV host, and our Chief Data Scientist, Debbie Berebichez is always up to something interesting. Lately, she's been focused on the relationship between Critical Thinking and Data Science and discussed it on both the DataFramed podcast and the Story By Data YouTube channel

On DataFramed, host Hugo Bowne-Anderson looked to address the complex question: "In a world and a professional space plagued by buzz terms like AI, big data, deep learning, and neural networks, conversations around skill sets, and less than productive programming language wars, what has happened to critical thinking in data science and data thinking in general?" 

Listen to the episode here: 

Then, as part of a live show published on the Story By Data YouTube channel, Debbie took part in a conversation with host Kate Strachnyi. In it, she shares her personal journey to data science, talks about women in STEM, and chats about the critical thinking skills necessary for success in data science.
