About This Event

This session is part of GA's Data Week, a weeklong festival of free workshops, speaker sessions and panel discussions around leveraging data to drive business decisions, productivity and career growth. Check out the full schedule here!

What exactly is Data Science and why does it matter? How does it differ from Data Analytics, and where do the two overlap?

We live in a world with seemingly infinite data, and there are numerous opportunities available in understanding its language. Data Science and Data Analytics are two of the hottest jobs in the market right now, and no matter what your industry, learning how to harness the power of data will drive innovation and key decision-making. But what makes Data Science & Data Analytics differ?

In this panel, you’ll have the opportunity to learn the distinctions between Data Science and Data Analytics.

During the last half hour of the event, the GA Admissions team will host a Q&A session for those interested in learning more about our Data Science courses!

About the Panelists

David Napoli Photo

Senior Consultant

David Napoli, a Senior Consultant in Analytics and Data Visualization, has worked with data for over 20 years as an analyst, actuary, statistician, research manager, and director. His experience includes evaluation and outcomes studies, ROI analysis, IBNR determination, predictive modeling, risk adjustment methodologies, advanced data visualization, dashboard design and implementation, database development and management, and identifying and evaluating trends and forces in data. David has extensive experience working with claims data, including for Medicaid, Medicare, and Commercial lines of business. He recently held the position of Director of Business Intelligence for a nonprofit health plan. David’s educational background includes Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in aeronautical engineering (yes – he was a rocket scientist), and early in his career he realized he desired to concentrate his professional efforts in an industry focused on helping people more than his fondness for space exploration. He also completed coursework towards his doctorate in Health Services Research with a focus on Biostatistics at the University of Colorado School of Public Health (All but Dissertation).

In recognition of his exemplary service in the classroom, David has been selected as a member of General Assembly's Distinguished Faculty program.
