Happy New Year! We're back better than ever in 2019 with TWO new talks from the talented Data Scientists at Dataiku. We all know that data is an invaluable tool in business, however its value extends further than just industry. These talks will explore data science projects that go beyond our 9-5 jobs and tackle topics as big as the gender pay gap and as small as how to learn a foreign language.

Here's a brief preview:

Learning a new language can seem like an insurmountable challenge - however, approaching the problem with data science and using a few smart techniques (plus the help of a few FRIENDS) can ease the learning curve.

There are plenty of studies that discuss the gender pay gap. But these studies can be frustrating, because they don’t allow us to dig into the data to better understand how the gender pay gap trend manifests itself. This talk will explore the relevant datasets, let them speak, and finally, help us understand a bit better exactly what we mean when we talk about the gender pay gap
