Livestream: Transitioning from Math to Data Science with Taylan Bilal (9.7)

September 7, 2017 @ 8:30 pm - 9:30 pm

NOTE: Please sign-in at via the Livestream link below. Thank you! 

Data science is still an emerging field, which requires a broad set of skills, including a strong mathematical background. Volume, variety and velocity of data being generated makes for an environment where companies are drowning in data but starving for information. Dr. Taylan Bilal intends to talk about possible roadmaps from academia and more specifically mathematics, to data science, including his personal journey.
