Image for Data Science: “The Sexiest Job of the 21st Century”?

The Rise and Rise of Data Science


Dr Tamara Sheret, Swamphen Enterprises


In 2012 Harvard Business Review described data science as being “the sexiest job of the 21st Century”. However, the field of data science is still relatively unknown in the wider world. In this talk Tamara will discuss the beginnings of data science in physics and astrophysics and show examples from her varied career. We will look at some famous uses of data science and explain why today every business wants and needs a data science department. Come along and see for yourself how versatile data science is and experience the nerve wracking thrill of live coding
