Talk: Plotting Your Career Pathway into Data Science
Info: Data is literally more valuable than oil today. Yet it is often perceived as non-accessible. As a result the reality of most data teams in the commercial space is pretty bleak; there is barely any diversity. There is no one path to being in data. You can chop and change in several different paths. Ora will be holding a short workshops to plot different career pathways into the ever elusive space of Data Science!
2pm: Arpita Nigam:
Global Product Manager, Bloomberg Quant Platform
Talk: Applications of AI
Info: Arpita will provide a business insight into the opportunities opened up by AI. Discussing in more detail about the applications of AI (including in Finance), she will outline some of the arenas in which career prospects are set to grow.
