Event description

Description

Data science and analytics influence many areas of our lives, including business, engineering, health care, the environment – even sports. Did you know the Milwaukee Brewers attribute their successful 2018 season, in part, to leveraging sports analytics? According to USA Today, “Milwaukee’s season is finished, but the Brewers are just getting started” and they boldly predict “Next time, expect to see them celebrating the NL pennant.”

Want to learn more? Come to “The Data Science of Baseball” hosted by Northwestern Mutual Data Science Institute.

Featured speakers include Milwaukee Brewers’ leadership team members Mike Schwartz, Vice President, Strategy & Analytics and Nick Davis, Manager, Baseball Research and Quantitative Analysis, who will discuss:

  • The rapid growth in the use of data science by most Major League Baseball teams
  • How data analytics and science can lead to exciting career possibilities in the field of sports analytics
