How do we train the next generation of data scientists? [WebEx presentation]

At 3:00pm EDT today, Dr. Jennifer Priestley, professor of applied statistics and data science at Kennesaw State University, will speak about how universities are addressing the shortage of analytics talent.

 

Universities around the country have launched dozens of master's-level programs in data science and advanced analytics. But this response has generated an interesting question for universities and for companies recruiting analytical talent: Is data science a unique discipline of study? Or is data science just an analytical track within the traditional disciplines – like finance or biology? And, is a PhD in data science needed?

 

You can tune in to her talk LIVE at the N.C. Women in Machine Learning and Data Science via WebEx.
