Introducing Data Science through its methods

Are you new to data science and machine learning? Then this talk is for you!

Introducing Data Science through its methods

About this Event

Data Science is a broad and diverse field comprised of a few families of methodologies: Business Intelligence, Unsupervised Learning, Supervised Learning, Reinforcement Learning, Optimization, as well as Systems Modelling & Simulation. These families are distinguished by their purposes, and the kinds of data that is required to use them.

This talk will introduce data science through an overview of its methods and where they may be applied. This talk is crafted to be accessible to the non-technical, but to also be of interest to the technologist. Hopefully, even a practicing data scientist may find something of interest.

We will begin by discussing a past data science project to give those interested in data science an idea of what a project might entail. Then, we will talk about the various families of methods and how they might be used. We will conclude by touching on how one can get started with data science.

About the Speaker

This talk will be conducted by our Head of Data Science, Jeremy.

Jeremy holds a PhD in Decision Sciences at the National University of Singapore and a Master's Degree at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Computation for Design and Optimization, where he did a thesis on randomised methods for convex optimization.

Jeremy later earned a PhD in Decision Sciences at the National University of Singapore in 2017, with a thesis on "Social Networks and the Choices People Make" (discrete choice on social networks). During his PhD days, he also worked on recommendation systems and a start-up building solutions for compliance in pharmaceutical manufacturing.
