How can data science and statistics remove the stress and worry from Christmas? In this interactive workshop, we’ll jingle all the way through the data to find the hidden patterns and trends that help spread the Christmas cheer whilst creating calm for all. So why not join us for a merry excursion into the world of data science to see how you can embrace your inner mathematician and optimise your festive season. About our speaker: Dr Sophie Carr is the founder and director of Bays Consulting. Sophie’s first love was Lego, then aeroplanes and her career followed suit. She trained as an engineer and whilst working full time took a PhD in Bayesian Belief Networks and has worked in data analytics ever since. Or to put it another way, Sophie has made a living out of finding patterns. Outside of work, Sophie is the Vice President for education and statistical literacy at the Royal Statistical Society and the World’s Most Interesting Mathematician.
