2022 Ihaka Lecture Series: Building building blocks for data science

2022 Ihaka Lecture Series, hosted by the Faculty of Science

The field of Data Science is fortunate because the most popular software tools for Data Science are programming languages. This means that most Data Scientists learn to write code.

The availability of such tools depends on people building effective, efficient, and open software tools for Data Science. This means that some Data Scientists are developers. They write code so that other people can write code.

The 2022 Ihaka Lecture Series features three speakers who develop software tools for Data Science, building systems that can be built upon.

There are three lectures in the series on 28 July, 4 and 11 August.

Please note lectures commence at 6.30pm. Livestreams are also available for each lecture.
