This meetup is run by practitioners with 20+ years of experience in the field and it is dedicated to real world data science. Real Data Science is about methods you can apply in your practice/business applications and not about some overhyped technology that is experimental at best and broken at worse (and in fact of very limited use to you). Many technologies labelled "big data", "AI", "self driving" etc. have been more of the latter. This meetup is operating from Texas, but was originally founded in 2014 in Los Angeles, California and was part of DataScience.LA (2014-2021). We moved to Texas and changed our name in July 2021.
