Data Scientists work on almost every aspect of a business nowadays. This is true for both technical innovations which are unthinkable without use of machine learning algorithms and AI solutions, and industries where “business as usual” existed for decades and even centuries and now can be dramatically optimized using Data Science.

Some of these applications are related to the areas and industries which are not the first to come to mind when thinking about Data Science problems. This presentation will go over some examples of Data Science and Machine Learning being applied to the HR space, where employees of the companies are the data being analyzed. It’s common knowledge that employees are the most valuable asset for each company which creates the conclusion that it’s ultimately through talent analytics that the highest return on data science investments can be achieved.

This presentation won’t dive deep into various techniques and algorithms that can be used to solve applied Data Science problems in HR space, but will mention some of the possible paths scientists might consider taking in their work.
