Full Description

  ABSTRACT of Presentation

 

In this talk I will discuss the steps I took to transition my career to become a data scientist as well as the journey of many of my engineering coworkers took to reach the same level. Domain expertise is critical to possess before applying machine learning to solve complex problems and is the reason engineers can make the best data scientists.
