[Note: DataFramed is currently on a short hiatus, but we plan to bring it back during Summer, 2019.] 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.

This week on DataFramed, the DataCamp podcast, Hugo speaks with Gabriel Straub, the Head of Data Science and Architecture at the BBC, where his role is to help make the organization more data informed and to make it easier for product teams to build data and machine learning powered products. They’ll be talking about data science and machine learning at the BBC and how they can impact content discoverability, understanding content, putting the right stuff in front of people, how Gabriel and his team develop broader data science & machine learning architecture to make sure best practices are adopted and what it means to apply machine learning in a sensible way. How does the BBC think about incorporating data science into its business, which has been around since 1922 and historically been at the forefront of technological innovation such as in radio and television?
