Half Stack Data Science

Talk abstract: Bridging the data science supply-demand gap. Data scientists must be able to think like a statistician, a scientist, a customer, and a software developer, sometimes in the same meeting! This is especially true in organisations where data science is a new function, which is most organisations. The need for this capability is clear, so why is it hard to provide it? In this talk we discuss a two-pronged approach – how organisations need to change to accommodate data science, and how data science education needs to change to make data scientists better equipped for the real world.

Bio: This talk is presented by David Asboth and dr Shaun McGirr, data scientists and co-hosts of the Half Stack Data Science podcast. To both of them, data science is a creative and technical discipline; an exciting quest to understand the ‘now’ and predict what will happen next. They love to bring individuals together to help their business make great decisions.
