From academia to the ‘real world’: data art and data science
While there are more and more excellent data science degrees available, there often seems to be a gap between what you learn as a data scientist at university and how to make this work in practice. In particular, there are often challenges around how to put your skills to work to deliver business value. Amy gives a view on how to do effective analytics in the 'real world', which is as much about understanding the business context and solving the right problems, as it is about using advanced techniques. Amy will also talk about what she wishes she had known when leaving academia, and how she adapted to life on the outside.
