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.
Javed Ahmed is a new Sr. Data Scientist at Metis who enjoys exploring the intersection of econometrics, traditional analysis, and machine learning to develop useful operational insights. We caught up with him to discuss his views on corporate data science training, his overall career, and details of his upcoming free webinar on Data-Driven Approaches to Data Science, which is scheduled for September 26th.
SwitchUp recently sat down with Metis Sr. Data Scientist Alice Zhao, who teaches our 12-week data science bootcamp in Chicago. Read about her favorite student success stories, her advice for those coming into the bootcamp, and much more.
As we approach another Final Application Deadline (Monday, March 5th!) for Data Science Bootcamps in Seattle, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York City, we sat down with Metis Sr. Data Scientist Jonathan Balaban to ask him about the value of the 12-week program. In this Q&A, he talks about his professional background, why he wishes data science bootcamps had been around when he was learning and pursuing a career, and what students will get out of their time at Metis.
