As we continue to gear up for the first San Francisco-based Metis cohort, we're hosting a career-focused event in our SF space on Thursday, October 15, featuring the incredibly smart Shawn Scully, Director of Product at Dato. During the event, he'll explore the evolving career paths of data scientists.
Shawn, who previously presented on this topic at Strata, will share insights about the diverse roles that data scientists play and the range of skills behind the work they do.
Dato is the company behind the fastest and most complete platform for building intelligent applications using machine learning technology. Started at Carnegie Mellon in 2009 as an open source project under the guidance of Professor Carlos Guestrin, the commercial version is now in broad use to make recommendations, detect fraud, score marketing content, and generally deliver predictive capabilities at many notable e-tailers, service providers, and Fortune 500 firms.
