There’s a lot of hype around data science, machine learning and deep learning - and for good reason. They have transformed many businesses and impacted lives of many consumers. Amit and Bargava mentor companies (startups as well as enterprises) to setup and scale data science teams in-house. They use real-life case studies to talk about how Data Science can be leveraged as a key differentiator at a product-focused company.
The talk primarily covers the following:
- When and how to start thinking about data science?
- How should the team be structured?
- What are the skills required?
- How to bootstrap it into the product?
- What to do when there is little data?
- Some thoughts and open discussion around tools and deployment strategies (including demo).
