Wine + Wireframes

This is a free event, but you must RSVP here: https://ga.co/WineWireframes This class aims to demystify UX by giving a practical and simple introduction to what UX is, while also explaining some of the core concepts of user centered design (UCD) and wireframing. This introduction to UX will cover one of the most integral parts of the web design process, wireframes. Wireframing is a way to express a flow through a process or individual screens in a product.

Documentary Screening: Data Science Pioneers - Conquering the Next Frontier

This is a free event, but you must RSVP here: https://ga.co/DSPioneers With humour and humanity, Data Science Pioneers presents a documentary about passionate data scientists driving us towards technological revolution. Even though the name is new, the role has a long lineage in statistics and information sciences. And while the challenges data scientists now face occur on an unprecedented scale today, they stand on the shoulders of technical and ethical quandaries that came before (after all, the question of self-driving cars is the trolley problem made real). In Data Science Pioneers, real data scientists contextualize the role and why they love it while exploring the concerns and challenges to come. Data Science Pioneers is proof that data scientists aren’t just data-crazy mathematicians that happen to work in a cutting-edge field; they enjoy their work and want to take on difficult ethical questions, too. They want to make a difference. For the non-data scientist, Data Science Pioneers is still a critical piece of the puzzle that is the future of AI - it’s about getting to know the people that are building systems that affect everyone’s day-to-day lives. Accepting AI as an inevitability is complex and might start with data scientists themselves, but it’s a fundamental change that will affect all and that cannot happen in isolation. Data Science Pioneers brings the story that will fuel discussions about not only how to construct a solid foundation for AI, but also a supportive community of those responsible for building it. Agenda 6:00 PM Welcome 6:20 PM Screening 7:20 PM - Networking with food & drinks
