Finding Soul in Meaningful Data

Monday, September 23 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm

Sean Gourley, CTO and Co-Founder of Quid 

Moderated by Kevin Novak, Data Scientist at Uber 


Data Science has become a regularly called-upon resource across all industries. We now need to objectively analyze the benefits and shortcomings of big data. As a society, we need to begin questioning the limits and applications of data. We need to think about the types of problems data can solve and more importantly, what kinds of problems it should solve. Join us for this thought provoking discussion with Sean Gourley, CTO and Co-Founder of Quid. 
 

Prerequisites: Passion and curiosity for data. 

 
Sean Gourley is the CTO and Co-Founder of Quid, a company helping organizations make sense of the world around them so they can make truly informed decisions.
