*Keynote* - The Real Unsolved Problems in Data Science

A session at PyCon Ireland 2014

Saturday 11th October, 2014

10:00am to 11:00am (DMT)

Data Science was described as "The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century" by the Harvard Business Review. Behind the glitter of the Big Data marketing wave lies a raft of issues that are hard, important and decidedly unsexy - if they're solved then statisticians and engineers can apply their organisations' data to solve high value problems.

Having worked, consulted and trained in the field for 15 years I'll highlight the gritty problems and propose ways for Pythonistas to tackle and solve these issues to keep Python as the go-to language for practical data science work.
