Data Science: Concepts and Missteps

Big Data and Data Science are multi-faceted concepts. In all of their guises, they are driving revolutionary changes in nearly all social, public, and institutional settings. One of most significant and far-reaching developments is the democratization of Data Science. Now everyone and every organization is "doing it".

In this presentation, I will describe some of the most prevalent characteristics and concepts surrounding the current activities associated with Data Science. I will then describe the importance of Data Science as a research discipline and as an application methodology for making advances in Big Data Analytics.

Following the discussion of these concepts (steps toward making discoveries from Big Data), I will then describe some of the misconceptions (missteps on the road to discovery) that can afflict current Big Data efforts.

  • How to get the technology stack right for your business Mar 19 2020 11:00 am UTC 60 mins
    James Lupton, CTO, Cynozure
    We spend a lot of time at conferences hearing about all the incredible use cases that people have been delivering and how technology is the panacea for all your problems.

    What we don’t generally hear about is the often challenging journey companies have to go through to successfully land their strategies, particularly when it comes to implementing technology.

    One of the early decisions you’ll have to make is choosing the right data platform to support your strategy. Many times projects can fail to deliver because the wrong choices are made early on in this process. There’s a lot of choice in the market at the moment and every vendor will be telling you that their technology is the thing you need. So how do you pick a technology stack that aligns properly to your strategy? Join James to find out 10 questions you should be asking to get things right.
  • If you can’t measure it, you can’t protect it: Quantifying Privacy Risk Mar 19 2020 9:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Dr. Maurice Coyle, Chief Data Scientist, Trūata Ltd.
    Privacy-enhancing technologies (PETs) have emerged as powerful tools to help companies protect the personal data that they hold relating to their customers. However, not all PETs are created equally, and without the ability to objectively quantify the levels of privacy risk within a dataset, the controller is exposed to regulatory fines and sanctions. In this webinar, we will demonstrate how the privacy risk within a dataset can be measured and show some examples of how it can reduce the exposure of the controller.
