Data science is a viral topic that is changing the way we work: data is piling up and Excel no longer seems to the tool of choice, so what can we do? In this presentation, Roman will define what data science is and how the topic is not just a single tool but a collection of tools and techniques which allow people to decipher data more effectively than the past. Data science is comprised of statistics, programming, data analysis, and visualization and Roman will explain how these interrelate through a series of examples using Python. Join us to learn the basics of data science over your lunch hour!
