TDWI Chicago Update

At TDWI, we have been working hard to navigate this ever-changing landscape in the face of COVID-19, and we want to assure you that the health and well-being of our employees, customers, and vendor partners is our top priority. Therefore, due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the guidelines laid out by the CDC and WHO, we have decided to merge this year’s TDWI Chicago Conference (May 10-15) with TDWI Orlando 2020 (November 8-13), where it can be a successful experience for everyone. The Chicago 2020 agenda will be replicated at TDWI Orlando 2020.

Our registration team will be in contact with individual registrants and sponsors directly.

Data science has been called “the sexiest job of the 21st century” and with good reason—the size and breadth of our data is growing exponentially, making our ability to understand that data more and more challenging. This session defines data science, describes how it is similar to and different from related analytics disciplines, and covers the key concepts every data scientist needs to know.

In this overview, data science will be described in a project-oriented framework. Each project must define objectives, collect and integrate data, prepare it for analysis, perform the analysis, and deploy the results. Whether the end-goal of the project is reporting, visualization, descriptive modeling, or predictive modeling, the same principles apply. For each stage, key principles will be described and real-world examples will illustrate the meaning of these principles.
