How Data are Transforming the World
Dec 3, 2020 - Dec 3, 2020
16:00H - 19:00H
Virtually every day we hear news about the famous Big Data, right? In this workshop we’ll find out what it is, what it’s used for (and what not) and the main jobs associated with data. We will also explore the interactive tools that enable us to see its potential and learn about the most highly valued skills in this field.
Topics of the workshop on Big Data & Business Intelligence:
What Big Data is and isn’t
Data, people and the gender perspective
Examples of interactive uses of Artificial Intelligence
Practical resources of the Python programming language
This orientation workshop will start with an introduction to the current status of the digital ecosystem, in which we will summarise the main jobs and their associated skills, as well as the development and characteristics of this world in Catalonia and Spain. This introduction is geared at debunking myths on the sector and understanding the challenges it is posing in terms of economics, society and equality.
Time will be set aside at the end of the workshop for participants to talk with the trainer, to debate and ask any questions about the topic.
He has taught classes on programming and statistics at different universities like UPF, UAB and UOC, as well as in companies and professional colleges. Before focusing on training, he worked as an analyst and programmer at several consultancies, as a data journalist and as support for research groups at the UAB.
