Data Science Friday Webinars: Insights from Images
Archived Event | FREE

Learn about Wolfram's multiparadigm approach to doing data science. This series focuses mainly on image analysis—starting in outer space to study images captured by the James Webb Space Telescope and ending on London streets to analyze traffic images captured by "JamCams." Along the way, we stop by Mars to look at videos assembled from images taken by NASA rovers and dig into the geologic layers of South Asia as recorded by the US Geological Survey. Each webinar demonstrates the data science workflow and how to build a project pipeline through different stages, beginning with formulating questions, then wrangling and cleaning the data, performing exploratory data analysis and applying multiparadigm techniques to analyze the data, and finally, sharing the results.
