Upcoming data conferences feature Insight Fellows and team members

On the heels of Strata and the Grace Hopper Celebration, there are three well-regarded conferences in the data community scheduled for next week.

Starting Monday, DataEngConf will feature data engineering and data science talks by industry experts (including Insight alumni and team members) for two days at Columbia University.

Her talk will focus on how her team uses Google Cloud to determine the optimal number of “single-copy” newspapers to send to each sales location.

The newspaper was an early adopter of the cloud platform, and Bauer said re-designing and deploying their single copy model has been one of her team’s longest-running projects.

Geneviève Smith, Insight’s Director of Product (and an alumna of the data science program), will talk about the lessons Insight has learned in creating a collaborative learning environment for our data science, health data science, data engineering, and artificial intelligence Fellows.

The data startup track also adds an extra benefit — ticket prices as low as $250, a fraction of the regular price.

For those interested in big data, two of our data engineers, Judit Lantos and David Drummond, will be running a Spark training session that will focus on solving real-world data problems faced by the industry.
