Lightning Talk: Why Successful Data Science Combines Art and Science

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Left brain, right brain. Many people assume that data science is all about the left brain’s logical and analytical side. What they do not realize is that a lot of the value of data science requires a level of interpretation and art. For business use, people do not just want a bunch of numbers – they want the interpretation and insights that data scientists can provide.

Data Scientist, DataSong
I received an MSc in Statistics from ENSAI, the French National School of Statistics and Information Analysis. With a specialization in Marketing, I came onboard DataSong for a 6-month internship and have been there ever since. Apart from a few consulting projects here and there, I’ve been mostly focusing on our Attribution tool which uses time-to-event modeling on big data to quantify the relative influence of marketing campaigns.
