The agenda

6.30pm CEST

Welcome & Get together

7.00pm CEST

Future of data-driven work

Karolina Stosio, Lead Data Scientist | Temedica


The way we work changes faster than ever: on one hand the AI revolution disrupts the job market , on the other the COVID-19  pandemics disrupts our expectation of a workspace and work itself.

A steady 9-to-5 career for life is an artifact of the past. We will all change our highly mobile jobs within the next few years spending an average of 4 years with the same employer (Stepstone, 2017). Our next job position may not yet exist today, our couture position may be obsolete in the future. Yet one thing is clear: the future of work is data-driven. Which roles are and will be available in data-driven companies? What skills are are in demand and will remain relevant? Which positions are going to disappear? 

7.30pm CEST

By walking through several concrete use cases and technologies, you'll learn where to insert these techniques and how to incorporate governance as part of your data architecture and system design. Finally, we'll investigate ways this can apply in a distributed data environment, like Data Mesh.
