RSS Merseyside Local Group & UK Data Service: Starting a Career in Data - Panel

  • 17 Mar 2021
  • 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM (GST)
  • Online

The rise of data science continues with employer demand for data scientists increasing by 20-30% year-on-year. Hundreds of universities now offer courses focusing on Data Skills, Statistics, Informatics and Machine Learning. With more and more future career paths increasingly relying on data and analytical skills, there are a number of questions that graduates often face, such as:

  • Should I learn Python or R, or something else?

  • What’s the difference between data science and statistics?

  • Do I need to be good at maths to do data science?

To discuss these questions we will be hosting a panel of individuals of varying backgrounds and experience in data science within industry and academia. Submit any questions you’d like to see discussed at http://sli.do/173, but otherwise, you can also ask questions during the event.
