Why Data Science? – Presentation

Recently, I was invited to speak about data science to the research department of a regional hospital system. I thought I would share my slides.

A clarification note on one of my quotes from the presentation,

“Data Science doesn’t need big data”

I am not trying to say big data is not important. I am just saying that lots of excellent data science can be performed on data that is not big data. So, don’t wait until you have big data before you start doing some data science.

For some reason, not all the links in the presentation are working. If you want to follow the links, go to SpeakerDeck and click “Download PDF”.
