Gil to Speak at Data Scientist Summit

On Thursday, May 12th, Gil will be on a panel at the Data Scientist Summit in Las Vegas, Nevada. From Hadoop to digital trendspotting, the two-day conference aims to explore how data science is shaping businesses, transforming markets, and changing the world as we know it.

Gil will participate on Thursday’s panel entitled, “Top Dataset Masters: Major Mashups in Action.” Gil and his fellow panelists will present case studies of how big data is being used to power new applications, disrupt industries, and yield entirely new levels of insight.

Gill will be joined on the panel by Peter Skomoroch (Senior Research Scientist, LinkedIn), Toby Segaran (Data Scientist, Google), and Sharon Frinks Chiarella (Vice President, Amazon Mechanical Turk).

Here are the details for panel:
