In this episode of the Centric Biz and Tech Talks podcast, we talk to participants and attendees from our Expedition: Data event.
Data science and machine learning are gathering speed, moving from the technology sphere into day to day business.
Last year, Centric Consulting organized a machine learning hackathon at its spring meeting so its consultants could learn, experiment, and get even more excited about the new technology. It was a great success, but what could our Data & Analytics team do for an encore?
In this episode of Centric Biz and Tech Talks, we go on location Centric’s spring meeting and learn about the Expedition: Data event. For this event, we partnered with Microsoft and RevLocal to use live business data in different experiments, applying machine learning and data visualization to a client’s immediate business problems.
We talk with organizers, participants, and observers to hear about the event and what it’s accomplished. Watching it all was a representative of our client, and we get his perspective on the activity as well.
Join the team on this expedition into the jungles of data! Hear what we learned, what it means for business and what’s coming up next!
