About this event

What exactly is Data Science -- and why does it matter?

We live in a world with seemingly infinite data, and data scientists hold the key to the right balance of computer science, statistics, and information theory.

Join us to take a peek into a day in the life of a data scientist and, more importantly, how you can help yourself get what the Harvard Business Review calls the “sexiest job of the 21st century”.

Takeaways

  • Describe the data mining workflow and the key traits of a successful data scientist.
  • Explore & visualize data.
  • Tools and resources to help you find answers to questions that may come up in future analyses.
  • Stay after class to learn about the Data Science part-time course offered at General Assembly.
