Our most important data science tools are our theories and methods. In this talk, we will go back to fundamentals and look closely at some usually unexamined assumptions about statistics and machine learning.We will look at "myths" that arise in three common data scientist tasks: predictive modeling, analyzing the reliability or validity of results, and running controlled experiments (A/B testing). We will "debunk" these myths and offer some potential fixes to issues that can arise, all in a (hopefully) entertaining way.
We started She Talks Data a year ago with a simple mission: to inspire, engage, and empower women in the data industry through small and intimate monthly meetups.
We've attempted to share the knowledge and buzz generated from our events in various ways; from broadcasting live, virtual user group events, and public speaking at the Tableau Conference among others. From the beginning, we imagined sharing our mission across the US, and even internationally!
Now, we're excited to take the first step by sharing what we've learned and connecting you with resources to jump start your own chapter!
