IC Data Day: My Journey in Data Analytics with Jason Harris '04 Keynote (cc)
Jason will outline challenges, obstacles and lessons learned as he journeyed through the murky definitions of data analysis and data science throughout his career. He will offer perspective on the current job market for data analysts and what employers are looking for (spoiler: They don't know!). Finally walk through a case study focused on predicting patient admissions for the business development of a home health care provider, and why a decision to deploy a less accurate model was made (and why that wasn't a bad thing).
