New York Data Science presents Open Source Tools for Big Data Analysis

February 27 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

32297225872-28602150

Open source tools are the lifeblood of big data. You can’t have one without the other (and, really, why would you want to?). Collecting data is relatively easy, but turning raw information into something useful requires that you know how to extract precisely what you need.

Join the analysis team at Dataiku, for an insightful discussion on techniques for working with data in a business environment. We’ll discuss how to look at data to discover what it contains, how to capture those ideas in conceptual models, and then feed your understanding back into the organization through business plans, metrics dashboards, and other applications.

Above all, you’ll learn how to think about the results you want to achieve — rather than rely on tools to think for you.

Agenda

  • Learn the fundamental terminology and processes in data science
  • Discover the technology landscape that has helped fuel the data explosion
  • Unlock the hidden value in the vast amounts of data

Who should attend

  • New graduates wanting to work as data scientists
  • Professionals in any role, across any sector (marketing, healthcare, finance)
  • Anyone currently working with data
  • Anyone who recognizes that data skills are in high demand
  • People wishing to learn how to maximize their use of data

Pre-requisites

A basic understanding of programming/computing and statistics is recommended.
