Elevator Pitch

In this session we’ll learn how to use data science practices to make better decisions with data.


Data science is revolutionizing the world around us. We’re rapidly approaching an era where all non-trivial business decisions will be made using data. However, most of us have not yet learned how to leverage data science practices to improve our decision-making processes.

In this session, we’ll learn what data science is and why it is so important for decision-making in your business. In addition, we’ll walk you through the data-science process so you can see first-hand how it can help you to make better data-driven decisions. Finally, we’ll learn how artificial intelligence and machine learning can automate decision-making in your organization.
