Hardcore Data Science

Monday, October 28
Gramercy Suite
9:00am - 5:00pm

Data science is a hot topic, but much of it is simply Business Intelligence in a new mantle. In this track, we push the envelope of data science, exploring emerging topics and new areas of study made possible by vast troves of raw data and cutting-edge architectures for analyzing and exploring information. We'll cover topics such as machine learning, natural language parsing, crowdsourcing and algorithm design.

Who should attend

Data scientists, statisticians, data modellers, and analysts with a strong understanding of data science fundamentals, will find themselves at home in this tutorial, as will CTOs, Chief Scientists, and academic researchers.
