Societal Impact of Applied Data Science on the Big Data Stack

Data availability should ideally improve accountability and decision processes. Armed with evidence of data science working across multiple domains from healthcare analytics to internet advertising big data is enabling changes in society, one application at a time. This talk will have two parts. We will first present a data scientist's overview of different technologies in use today and their utility. Then we will do a deep-dive on specific implementation and challenges we addressed while working with multiple partners in the healthcare industry on real-world healthcare data.
