Data Science in 30 Minutes: Accelerating Data Science Workflows with Bartley Richardson


GPUs built on CUDA have been used for deep-learning and other applications for a long time. But, when you look at data scientists and they work they’re doing, CUDA doesn’t really fit well into their workflow. Today’s scientists want quick exploration, quick results and to be able to shift gears without interrupting their train of thought. They want to think at the speed of data.

In this webinar, Bartley Richardson, PhD, a former fellow of The Data Incubator and a senior data scientist at Nvidia, addresses this issue. Richardson shares Nvidia RAPIDS project, an open-source suite of data processing and machine learning libraries that enables GPU acceleration for data science workflows. It also delivers a 50- to 100-times improvement over traditional GPU processing, but still using the same code and following the APIs that data scientists are familiar with (e.g., Pandas, SciKit).

Impostor Syndrome in Tech: What It Is, Why It Exists, and How to Overcome It

Impostor syndrome isn’t experienced in just certain industries or disciplines or only by certain individuals. It’s much more widespread than you may think. If you’re in the technology field, you may be familiar with this sentiment, but maybe you’ve never heard the term impostor syndrome. So, what exactly is impostor syndrome? What causes it? And how do people in data science, the tech field or STEM industries overcome it?
