We're planning to continue our data science webinar series and we'd love to hear from you about what you'd most like to learn in a webinar.

We'll reach out to our network of data science experts from within Coursera and our partner companies and universities to get webinar speakers who can cover the topics that interest you the most.

What would you like to hear about relating to data science?

I voted for trends in tools and tech within DS, but I would also like to see someone working in DS talking about how they got to where they are now and experts going into more detail about specific topics (something more theoretical but explained clearly and concisely).

Some topics I would be interested in:
  • Applying machine learning to Time series analysis problems
  • Detailed talks on specific algorithms that are known to produce very good models - what type of problems should they be used for? why do they work so well? e.g. Gradient boosting and why are some packages for gradient boosting better than others?
  • People who have won Kaggle competitions talking about best practices and how do initial experimentation quickly - like using the idea, code, experiment cycle that Andrew Ng talks about in his ML course
  • People in industry talking about the whole process of Data Science and how to turn a proof of concept into a product
  • How to manage a data science project well? What are best practices for keeping track of experiments when training models?
  • A comparison of different data science tools and technologies - which are better for different types of problems/ types of data?
