Abstract:  The Data Science Pipeline – far more than a set of AI/ML algorithms. The first questions we ask, the early decisions we make, the final use and interpretation of our results – all of these play a crucial role when leveraging data-informed decision making for any problem. In this talk, we’ll unpack what data science is with an emphasis on thinking about the entire data life cycle. We’ll explore how data science is being used to tackle problems in transportation logistics, retail, travel, professional sports, as well as take an insider’s look at CMU’s efforts at modeling influenza and the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ll also touch on on communication and collaboration because, at its heart, data science starts and ends with people.
