Data science is evolving rapidly. I’ll talk about our current and slightly future technical and philosophical challenges, including realtime vs non-realtime analysis, streams of data vs traditional databases, and some of the opportunities we have to learn amazing things about the world through our data and what this means for those of us who are immersed in working with it.
