Happy holidays everyone! Bangkok's least bullsh*t-tolerant data science meetup is back. We are extremely excited to have two practitioners with track records from two multinational corporations to come and tell us about their work. Mo is a geologist at the energy firm Chevron who taught himself data science just a year ago to help with oil and gas exploration, and recently came first at the company's global data science competition - not Thailand, not Asia, best in the world. Alan is an ex-Lazada data scientist and co-founder of Data Science BKK who jumped shi... went on a quest to revolutionize the music industry as a knowledge transfer associate at University of Leeds. He is bringing data science to one of UK's largest record label the same way Billy Beane brought data science to the Boston Redsox. See you at the meetup!
1. Data Science from Scratch: How to Learn Data Science for non-IT People
by Mo Pongtachchai, Geologist at Chevron
One of the most frequently asked questions in Data Science BKK is "where do I start". Mo will guide you through the process he took during the past year to go from zero to hero (literally) in data science. This talk is for those who are non-coders and those who forgot their high school math.
2. Let The Artists Do Their Work! How Data Will Help Music Industry?
by Alan Choicharoon, Data Scientist at University of Leeds
Music industry is quite adaptive to change forced upon it by advancement in technology. From the time of vinyl to cassette, cassette to CD, and CD to current streaming platform. It has learn to change with time. However, that's not to said that it has been easy nor that there are still no room for data to improve work process in the industry. I am going to talk about my work with experts in music industry to find how data will help them works more efficiently and productively such as providing a more robust benchmark, revealing hidden connection amongst artist, and automating task that are mundane, but also that there are still no ignoring the human factor in this industry.
- Registration starts at 18:30
- Talk by Mo and Alan with a small break in between
- Networking ends around 20:30
* Schedule might have minor changes according to circumstances. Stay tuned.
See you all at the meetup!
Data Science BKK is a no-nonsense, no-agenda meetup for data science and data engineering practitioners in Thailand. We welcome speakers and participants from all companies and industries. We believe in a place where we can truly share ideas and best practices without commercial interests--data people to data people.
