Thanks to everyone who attended Scotland Data Science and Technology’s meetup at the tontine building in Glasgow last night.

Special thanks to our two speakers, Yuri Aleksandrov and Mike Chantler.

Yuri;Data Scientist at Aridhia, discussed how data scientists can integrate DevOps and agile methodologies in their workflows, to improve management of user/client requirements, quality and accuracy of data and outputs produced by their models.

Mike; Professor of Computer Science at Heriot-Watt University, illustrated the power of topic modelling using a Brexit inspired example, gave insight as to how it works, and pointed out some of the pitfalls and ‘gotchas’ for the unwary.

It was a great night at the Data Lab in Edinburgh and we hope to see you at our May meetup.
