Feedback form is now closed.
Many data science projects have failed due to a mismatch between the business opportunity and the staff's skills and expectations.  In thissession you'll learn how to assess whether it's time to hire a data scientist, or whether you should pursue another path such as hiring business analysts or building a blended team with consultants instead. You'll also learn techniques for evaluating candidates who have more technical knowledge than you, and I'll explain why cutting edge machine learning techniques like deep neural networks are usually the wrong tool for most new initiatives.  Students and job seekers will learn how to identify a company and project life cycle stage which aligns with their expertise and interests.
