Advanced Analytics and Data Science: Synergies & Differences

DataXu is proud to be hosting a meetup on Advanced Analytics and Data Science: Synergies & Differences on Friday, October 14, 2016 at the DataXu Office in Boston, Massachusetts. The panel will be moderated by DataXu’s Dr. Sunanda Parthasarathy and will feature a post-event networking session.

We continue the theme of understanding the role of Data Science within an organization in this meetup of The Data Scientist group. Advanced Analytics and Data Science are terms used interchangeably in the current environment of big data. Are they different? When does an organization need one and/or another? Leaders who have created and led teams that successfully straddle these two worlds will explore the nuanced synergies and differences between them.

Senior/managerial members of the group can expect to take away learnings from our panelists on how best to staff and lead both teams to deliver strategic insights to their customers, while junior and aspiring data scientists can better understand the required skillsets to succeed in either or both the teams.

Speakers include:

  • Sandro Catanzaro, SVP of Analytics & Innovation at DataXu
  • Claudia Perlich, Chief Scientist at Dstillery
  • John Mercer, VP of Analytics at Apptopia
  • David Dietrich, Director of Analytics & Strategy at American Student Assistance
