The detailed picture for developing the leadership role of data science

Thanks to all who joined us in San Francisco on November 16-17, 2016

On 16th - 17th November, Corinium were delighted to launch the inaugural Chief Data Scientist, USA; the premier conference for high-level data science practitioners to get a detailed roadmap for developing the leadership role for data science. The event set out to assist anyone looking to fully exploit the data science capability within their organization.

Agenda Highlights included:

  • Learn to identify and meet real business needs in order to go beyond insight and unlock maximum value for your organization with the tools and techniques to translate data science insight into business enhancing action.
  • What does it really mean to be a Chief Data Scientist, and what strategies will lead you to success? Where should analytics end and data science begin?
  • Discover the path to establishing a truly data-centric culture and realizing organizational change: The compelling case for change and overcoming resistance in following science and not business instinct.
  • Democratizing Data Science: Empowering non-technical analysts to use data science tools and make better informed judgements which lead to a greater data-driven culture
  • The Data Scientist as a Partner in Success - Building Positive Relations with Internal Stakeholders: how can we convince other teams to work constructively with data science?

Using an interactive format, the forum brought together over 100 senior-level data science peers to share their latest innovations, best practises, challenges and use cases, as well as facilitate conversations and connections.  Alongside keynote presentations from our senior speaker line-up, our informal discussion groups, in-depth masterclasses and networking sessions provided the opportunity to take away the new ideas and information to deliver real benefits to attendee's companies.
