The Data Science Spectacular

TUE // MAR 01 // 07:00PM

We're all making a big fuss about data science but ... what is it, really? Do you need to speak Python from birth get involved? Are you going to barf the next time you hear the phrase "AI-powered insights" without any further explanation? Is anyone even talking about why pie charts suck so hard?!

If you've ever had these questions, you need the DATA SCIENCE SPECTACULAR, which is the ALL-TIME BEST one hour, one person comedy and circus-accented tour of data science IN THE WORLD.

Join host Andrea Jones-Rooy, Ph.D. (data science professor, comedian, and circus performer) for a dazzling journey through the wild world of data science, as they demystify what's actually going on, explain once and for all "deep learning" even means, and shares not just how you can get involved, but why data science NEEDS YOU!

This show is a must-watch for anyone who's ever been curious about data science, ever wondered if they should be making more "data-driven" (ugh) decisions, or ever dared to utter the most dangerous question in the world: "What does the data say?" You'll leave with knowledge about data science, why that question is so dangerous, and how to use your newfound data science skills for good. Hopefully, you will also have a decent time.

Andrea Jones-Rooy, Ph.D. (they/them) is a professor and the Director of Undergraduate Studies at the NYU Center for Data Science, where they teach their flagship undergraduate course, Data Science for Everyone, as well as upper-level courses on natural language processing. They are also a research consultant, coach, and keynote speaker for Global Fortune 500s and tech companies on how to use data science to more thoughtfully measure talent. When they aren't doing those things, they are an internationally touring standup comedian and circus performer, as well as host of the podcast Majoring in Everything and a proud member of the World's Smartest Podcast Network.
