Michael Wesch opened the IA Summit this year with an inspired keynote that provides a fresh and ambitious direction for all designers. He points out that our “audiences” aren’t audiences at all, but rather creators, and our job is not to lecture but to enable. With this new approach comes not only design challenges but the joy of reconnecting people to each other, which he illustrated with a series of extraordinary video clips.
With so much effort being devoted to the back-office manipulation and storage of semantic data, it is all too easy to forget the opportunities - and challenges - posed in inviting mainstream users to ‘browse the graph’ of semantic data. With expert contributions from MIT’s David Karger and the DBpedia team’s Christian Becker, the Gang sets about ensuring that the Interface is not forgotten.

There is a need for more data scientists to make sense of the vast amounts of data we produce and store.
Dataquest is an in-browser platform for learning data science that is tackling this problem.
Vik Paruchuri is the founder of Dataquest. He was previously a machine learning engineer at EdX and before that a U.S. diplomat.
What is data science?
How does data science compare to software engineering?
How does someone new to data science go about starting off at Kaggle?
In machine learning, there is unsupervised learning and supervised learning. Could you contrast these two?
What are the biggest world problems that will be solved with data science?
How to actually learn data science
FivePy episode introducing the data science challenge.
SXSW 2019 Schedule | Mythology around data science and AI is building quickly, but buzzwords have led to buzzkill when it comes to actual implementation. This panel of experienced data scientists will discuss the who, what, and how of data science. Forewarning: we won’t call AI a "silver bullet", unless your problem is a werewolf. (Most problems aren’t werewolves.)
So, are data scientists really unicorns? Is a PhD in data science and 20 years of experience necessary to be useful? What about visualization, TensorF…
