“Problems and Pipelines: A story from the frontline of data science” at noon on Thursday 2/25 in Olin 268


Student Colloquium talk by Professor Patrick McDonald, New College of Florida

Title: Problems and Pipelines: A story from the frontline of data science

Abstract: Suppose you were to suddenly obtain access to a remarkably rich data source, say, a trove of health records. What would you do? In this talk I will sketch how a group at New College handled such a situation. In so doing I will provide you with a glimpse of what it is like to work on a large-scale data science project, paying special attention to the vast array of required skill sets, social constraints and behavior patterns.
