  • Lies, Damned Lies, And The Data Scientist

    by Monica Rogati

    When it comes to big data insights, how do you know you’re asking the right questions? Hiring data scientists is a good start – we’re seeing their growth both on LinkedIn and at LinkedIn. But even data scientists are not immune from the myriad of hidden pitfalls that keep your key insights out of sight.

    Drawing from a deceptively simple exercise that I’ve used to haze dozens of data scientists on their first day, I will discuss the good, the bad and the ugly lessons we’ve learned about asking the right questions, denominators and being a data skeptic.

    At 9:50am to 10:00am, Tuesday 20th September

    In Westside Ballroom, Marriott Marquis Times Square
