    The Human Side of Data

    The Human Side of Data

    The human side of data is a crucial side that is sometimes overlooked. How can we better work with each other and with data? What should we know about the process of listening actively to what people say and don’t say, how body language factors in the velocity of a data team, how non-verbal communication can work well in remote teams, and how this ties in to design-thinking, evolutionary architectures, and shorter time to value.
    Plus, what's the connection between yoga and data?!

    Join us on this insightful session with Loris Marini, the founder and host of the Data Project. After exploring the world of quantum mechanics he stumbled into data science. As it turned out, data was fragmented and unreliable, so most of his work was on data architecture and data engineering. Today he helps organisations manage and use their data to protect and grow their most important relationships.
