Getting started with data science as a clean technology professional: Recorded Webinar
Are you working in agriculture, water, energy or climate and wondering what all the hype about machine learning and remote sensing is about? Are you interested in learning what's possible with all the cool, new tools but unsure of where to start?
Here, we'll talk about
- How data science can be used in different clean technology industries - what's new and exciting, what's growing and who are the players?
- What are the different roles and skill sets (Analyst, Scientist, Engineer)?
- What skill sets and tools do you already have as a professional working in water, energy, agriculture, climate, forestry and other clean technology fields?
- What do you need to get started using data science and what resources are available?
The webinar will be conducted by our founder and CEO, Gayathri Gopalakrishnan.
Gayathri is an award-winning scientist who has been pioneering the integration of clean technology and data science since 2003. She worked at Facebook, Argonne National Laboratory, several Silicon Valley startups and is the recipient of numerous national and international awards. As a scientist, her work has been recognized by the US National Academies of Science and Engineering for innovative environmental research and she was invited by the Obama White House in 2014 to participate in the conference on innovation in clean technology and big data. As an engineer and data scientist she built the data infrastructure, including data pipelines, dashboards and algorithms, for several startups.
