Harlan Harris, co-founder of the Data Science DC Meetup, veteran of the NYC Machine Learning community and bona fide Data Scientist will untangle the ways in which people use the term Data Science and lead a discussion following his presentation.

As the tech community and even the media catch on to the sophisticated ways in which people use data, the term "data science" has emerged as a catch-all. But as with any new buzz word it's worth unpacking just what the reality is. Join us on September 26th to hear and see how people are using the term and even offer your own take!

We'll start at 6:30 with socializing and food/drinks and the presentation will begin at 7pm.

We're still finalizing the location, but you assume that it will be in downtown DC and close to a Metro station.
