The bootcamp introduces students to a number of topics including, but not limited to:
- Introduction to data science thinking, R, and its uses
- Understanding your customers through on their shopping habits
- A data driven approach to brand perception, understanding events and social sentiment using social media
- A framework for working with data, combining methods, understanding results and extracting value from data
My talk was a brief 15 minutes chat with students about some of the potentials and pitfalls of social media data and a brief examination of sentiment analysis. I have shared my slides here for reference. Thanks to Dmitri Adler and the rest of the gang at Data Society for hosting such a great event and for the invitation to speak!
