Data Science & Society
I have given a keynote at the DisCo 2019 conference on E-learning – Unlocking the Gate of Education around the Globe. In this talk I introduced the focus area of Applied Data Science at Utrecht University and how the ADS Profile for master students can help empower them. As a running example I discussed the obligatory ADS Profile course Data Science & Society which focuses on Knowledge Discovery with Big Data using Cloud Computing technologies. Next to that, I chaired the opening DisCo session and participated in a discussion panel on the Future of Education.

It was a lot a fun doing it.
