Data Science in the Wild Workshop
Thanks for all the interest! You have asked, we have listened! Everyone wants to come, but calendars are already too full this year. We will defer this fantastic Data Science in the Wild Workshop for sometime in 2020.
Ever wanted to try your hand at flying a drone, collecting bird song or capturing footage of those sneaky nocturnal creatures? Well, here is your chance.
Data science in the wild is a free 3 day workshop for statisticians to gain hands on experience with technologies used in data collection in the field. The aim is to introduce statisticians to the use of popular existing and emerging technologies for data collection, including drones, audio sensors, trap cameras and analytical software. Participants will learn how to complete the entire scientific pipeline from data collection through to analysis.
