F-Con: Data Science

What exactly does one mean when they say “data science?” Fortego U’s lined up 4 lightning talks to help you form an answer! From big data to machine learning to neural networks, this event will be full of mind-expanding perspective from DS experts and happy hour discussion with fellow hackers that you won’t find anywhere else.

When: Friday, February 26 at 5:00 pm EST
Where: Online at Fortego U via GoToMeeting
How to Attend: RSVP by simply emailing [email protected] for the link/dial-in.

CNO Skills Covered: Data science, machine learning

Who Should Attend: Anyone who’s interested in data science. Some of the topics are better suited for those with CNO experience but not all. F-Cons are designed to give beginner/junior-level types a chance to expand their knowledge and ask questions, while giving advanced/senior-level types a chance to chime in with their knowledge and provide answers. F-Cons are also perfect for techie-types just looking for a good time engaging with other techie-types.

Four 20-minute lightning talks followed by F-Con’s signature open discussion happy hour where there’s no mute button and no last call. Below is a list of proposed topics but please check back soon for the final presentation line-up.

  • Lightning Talk 1: Defining Data Science… and the Data Scientist
  • Lightning Talk 2: Monte Carlo Techniques
  • Lightning Talk 3: Big Data for the Brave!
  • Lightning Talk 4: Introduction to Biological Neural Networks: Next Steps for Artificial Neural Networks

It’s a Friday night so there’s no excuse for coming empty handed! Be it a soda or shiraz, smoothie or scotch, F-Cons are the place to raise a glass (or a few…!).
