This morning I attended the Digi Breakfast on Data Science at Aalto University’s Open Innovation House. Bringing together researchers and practitioners from across the Aalto University and Helsinki data science scene for a quick series of talks was super fruitful and informative, especially for a newbie like myself. I came away with ideas — always dangerous! Here are some highlights:
- O’Reilly Media published a great study on the skills sets of data scientists called “Analyzing the Analyzers:An Introspective Survey of Data Scientists and Their Work”
- Free introductions to the basics of data science in these Data Analytics Handbooks
- IBM’s Watson computer can create new recipes and they are sold at a food truck!
