The goal of this group is to expand the ideas for approaching data science through application of design thinking. Design thinking is a valuable tool not only in the visualization of results but also how problem decomposition is approached. While the software, algorithms, and data acquisition are critical elements of data science, the application of empathy for the user, rapid prototyping, and other key ideas of design thinking can greatly benefit data science work.
This group seeks to bring together discussion of design thinking ideas and experience and how to apply the ideas to data science. Additionally we will attempt to have as many of these conversations over a drink to encourage informal discussion over death by PowerPoint.
