While data is increasingly important in academia as well as in industry, the two worlds do not intersect each other all that often. DSDT is a monthly forum for sharing ideas about data across disciplines and industries. Each DSDT meeting will consist of two talks on a common theme, pairing a data scientist with a data technologist along with time for discussion. From the second session onward, we will have a tutorial and hacking session after the talks where we will learn how to work on understanding and analysing data sets relevant to that meeting’s theme. The schedule for the first meeting on the 18th at NIAS is given below.
