Em Grasmeder, Data Scientist &

Martin Fowler, Chief Data Scientist

The field of data science was born with an identity crisis. The fundamental question of who or what a data scientist actually is, and what they should be doing, remains largely undecided. Regardless of where the answer falls, there are a number of tools and techniques that every data scientist should have in their tool belt. Many of these tools will be familiar to traditional computer scientists, who work in many of the same environments and in many of the same ways as data scientists. But practitioners of both fields often have a hard time seeing how the other side lives. In this session, Em and Martin discuss the ways data changes things; starting from development and strategy, then expanding outwards.
