For our July Meetup, we're thrilled to be presenting the work of not one, not two, but nine members of our Data Science community! These lightning talks will include highlights of work presented at recent or upcoming academic conferences, demos of tools and techniques that people are excited about, and more, all in bite-sized packages of less than 10 minutes.
