Are you a data scientist? Would you like to be? Do you care about New York City? Are you free on March 25th? If you answered yes to these questions, we might have just the event for you.
We are bringing together data enthusiasts to explore and model New York City open data. They will team up to answer questions related to transportation, city agencies and more. You will work in small groups to tackle one part of the data analysis pipeline: data wrangling, descriptive analytics, or predictive modeling. Data and technical experts will be on hand to keep your momentum going.
If you need a break and want to learn something new, there will be plenty of cool speakers discussing topics about smart cities and data science. We will also have a kick-off event the evening before to meet your group and set up your laptop so that the next morning you can all dive into the data right away.
