A beginner-friendly session designed to convey data’s usefulness in learning from the past, making decisions in the present, and better controlling what happens in the future is the subject of the next TenK Talk.
The speaker will be Erin Bartolo, Data Science Program Manager for the Certificate of Advanced Studies at the School of information Studies at Syracuse University, plus other presenters. This is the third of the monthly “Ten K” talks presented by the Information Technology Services Department at the iSchool.
The program is scheduled for Thursday, May 31, from 10:30 am to Noon in Room 011 at Hinds Hall (lower level) on the Syracuse University Campus. Pizza will be served, and reservations are not necessary.
This session will focus on concepts regarding data science’s usefulness in everyday life. Bartolo noted that, although data is available and can be accessed, many times people will make decisions based on incomplete, subjective information drawn from opinion and intuition. The presentation will help attendees focus on how to increase their awareness of data and will provide tips for how to cultivate an objective, analytical mindset.
TenK Talks are informal, hour-long seminar-type presentations regarding a variety of topics in new technologies. They are organized by the iSchool’s IT Services Department to serve the community. The talks are open to anyone at the iSchool, the Syracuse University campus, and the surrounding region.
