While the democratization of data science can be attributed to the proliferation of tools, choosing the right tool has become a challenge. Most of the data driven projects require a carefully integrated software hardware solution. Add to this data scientists yearn for project security while allowing them to experiment on R&D. Using the cloud for these purposes is strictly not advisable.
Hence it is critical for data scientists to understand what aspects and features a high performance computing workstation should have that will best serve their purpose and thereby have a positive impact on their organization and the clients they serve.
Analytics India Magazine in association with Dell Technologies is organizing this masterclass to help data scientists understand the fundamental prerequisites of picking the perfect data science workstation which suits their day to day data science workloads.
The session will have Dipanjan Sarkar who will deliver a talk on what critical features a data science workstation should have. Dipanjan is a Data Science Lead at Applied Materials, leading advanced analytics efforts around computer vision, natural language processing and deep learning. He is also a Google Developer Expert in Machine Learning. Following this talk, Dipanjan will join Aditya Jain of MiQ Digital and Shirish Gupta of Novartis for a panel discussion. The panelists will discuss about:
a) Current Projects and computation challenges that they face.
b) Computing power required for data-intensive projects.
c) Role of emerging technologies like AI & VR to speed up analytics projects.
d) Security aspects and other benefits associated with dedicated data science workstations.
We will also have Mr. Suhas Pingat, Brand Manager Precision Workstations of Dell Technologies giving his view in an interesting Fire-side chat followed by the audience Q&A.
Why Should You Attend
If you are a data scientist or an aspiring one, you would be confused about the kind of compute that your data intensive projects might require. This session is tailor made to address all those queries. Top data scientists will come together in this hour long insightful session to provide you with all the information required to make a intelligent decision on choosing your next data science workstation
