You have probably heard the term Big Data. What does that mean anyway? Today I'm joined by Alastair Woolcock (@AlastairKW), to talk about Data Science. We uncover the science of data analytics and how data is unlocking market changing insights at all levels of business. Whether you're a small business trying to understand social media and it's influence on your marketing efforts, or an enterprise organization trying to understand client behavior, data can be a powerful tool. There is a growing industry of data science that is trying to use the power of hypothesis to mine for insights in the mountains of data that our modern businesses produce.
Jessie Adcock brought her deep experience in enterprise organizations to government. The City of Vancouver has a vision for a digital strategy. Jessie is responsible for the development and implementation of that strategy. We explore the evolution of government and technology, how the city of Vancouver is supporting their digital economy and the city's open data initiative.
