• Data Products Meetup #6


    This meetup is for Product Managers, Data Scientists, and everybody interested in exchanging experience in building end-user data solutions. Join us if you want to tell or learn about interesting data solutions, machine learning algorithms, analytics as well as custom tools. We focus on the ways data solutions were applied as part of a business process or user-facing product. Let's discuss what you are building, how, for whom and why. Agenda: 1. Presentation - "Classifications as power technologies" by Milagros Miceli. Mila works with the research group "Criticality of AI-based Systems" at Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society. With a background in Social Sciences and Communication, she research on the intersection of digital capitalism, symbolic power, and machine learning classification systems. Milagros study data science works ethnographically, observing how workers reflect upon the societal implications of their roles and creations. Her research aims at gaining insights on decision-making processes and common work practices, to identify where power lays and how it is exercised. 2. Lean Coffee - select and discuss topics you are interested in. It is a structured but agenda-less meeting. Participants gather, build an agenda, and begin talking. Conversations are directed and productive because the agenda for the meeting was democratically generated.
