Dr. Hadley Wickham (RStudio & University of Auckland)
Title: "Data Science Challenges"
Währinger Straße 29, 1090 Wien, HS1

Abstract

"In this talk, I'll outline my vision of data science as a field, focusing on the corner in which I'm most familiar: designing tools for data scientist-programmers. I'll talk about why I believe programming is so important for data science, why code is an excellent medium of computation, and outline some of the challenges that visual tools face. I'll also talk about data science challenges where programming doesn't help or feels excessively clumsy, and speculate on how we might fuse the best of programmatic and interactive UIs."
