Data science is one of the fastest growing industries and has been called the ‘Sexiest job of the 21st Century’. But what exactly is data science? In this podcast, brought to you by DataCamp, Hugo Bowne-Anderson approaches the question by exploring what problems data science can solve rather than defining what data science is. From automated medical diagnosis and self-driving cars to recommendation systems and climate change, come on a journey with experts from industry and academia to explore the industry that will change the course of the 21st century.


episode 51: #51 Inclusivity and Data Science

This week Hugo speaks with Dr. Brandeis Marshall, about people of color and under-represented groups in data science. They’ll talk about the biggest barriers to entry for people of color, initiatives that currently exist and what we as a community can do to be as diverse and inclusive as possible.Brandeis is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at Spelman College. Her interdisciplinary research lies in the areas of information retrieval, data science, and social media. Other research includes the BlackTwitter Project, which blends data analytics, social impact and race as a lens to understanding cultural sentiments. Brandeis is involved in a number of projects, workshops, and organizations that support data literacy and understanding, share best data practices and broaden participation in data science.
