Hey Birdie: Building a Mini Voice Assistant for Data Science with Triveni Gandhi, Data Scientist at Dataiku
In this talk, I'll review the process I used to create a mini voice assistant that can be used to navigate a dashboard hands free. I'll discuss building and deploying a speech recognition model to an API Endpoint, creating a pyaudio listener, and how you can use python to control your browser. Growing Data Science Talent through Structured Problem Solving with Jolene Mork, Senior Data Scientist at Macy's:
What makes a data science team more than a collection of smart individuals feeding data through algorithms? At Macy's, the core skills that unite the data science team are a knack for structured problem solving—taking a vague business ask, breaking it down to understand the underlying question, and then abstracting the question to components solvable with math—and structured communication, which allows us to communicate and effect change in our organization. This talk will focus on a specific business case drawn from pricing to illustrate the transformation of a vague business ask into a solvable data science problem, and discuss how it reflects the structured problem solving philosophy that underlies the work of the data science team at Macy's. Speaker bios: Triveni is a Data Scientist with Dataiku. She works with clients to determine best practices around data science and their specific projects. Previously, she worked as a Data Analyst with a large non-profit dedicated to improving education outcomes in NYC. Triveni holds a Ph.D in Political Science from Cornell University. Jolene is a Senior Data Scientist working within the Macy’s Supply Chain organization, leading projects related to improving the return on investment in fashion inventory through enhanced pricing and allocation strategies. She is passionate about developing intuitive explanations for how models work, and influencing the organization to adopt analytics into business practices. Before Macy’s, Jolene received her Ph.D. in physical chemistry from MIT, where she performed laser spectroscopy experiments to measure properties of the fluorescent nanoparticles used to generate the color in Samsung’s QLED TVs.
