Video Series: Demystifying Data Science – The Practice of Data Science

By Emily Wilson • April 12, 2018

Back in September, we hosted a free live online conference featuring 12 straight hours of data science talks from more than 25 of the industry's best and brightest speakers. Demystifying Data Science was an awesome day of insights, advice, information, and interaction for aspiring data scientists. To share it all, we've broken the collection of recordings into a six-part blog series, of which this is the third.

The topic? The Practice of Data Science. In the following five talks, you'll hear from experts on specific aspects of the data science practice (like statistics and the art of deception, the possibilities/limitations of topic modeling) and on the broader ideas that make up the field – what goes into the job, what skills do you actually use on a regular basis, how are things changing? For all that and more, tune in below.
