What we're about
Data Science Chicago, organized by IDEO (https://www.ideo.com/), brings together people interested in data science:
• the creative "visualization and design" side,
• the analytical "statistics and machine learning" side,
• the verbal "communication and story-telling" side,
• and especially the areas in between those extremes.
Members are professionals, students, consultants, enthusiasts and entrepreneurs who love data and understand the potential value it brings for society, business and government.
Meeting activities are varied and range from tutorials on new technologies and their applications, success stories from practitioners, cutting-edge academic data science, and social activities. Long, boring talks should seek other venues :)
We are inclusive of all genders and races and try to foster a safe environment where everyone feels comfortable to share and learn. We welcome your ideas on how to make this group an exciting growth opportunity for everyone.
Come to meet others and contribute to the community!
