Loving the podcast
Listened to Andrea Gagliano and I loved that episode . I am an artist and a data scientist and I was so thrilled to know it’s possible to marry these two disciplines !! Thank you for putting this together !!
This was my first experience and I will keep tune in for more. Thank you very much for such inspiring and engaging talks. With wide range of topics including how we can apply data science and diverse collaboration in fighting against covid-19, improving healthcare, and economic opportunities.
Hello Wids team, thank you so much for providing such a wonderful content. It is such an motivation and opportunities for an individual like me who is looking forward to pursue careers in Data Science. As someone who wants to use math in social development projects I wanted to request if you could bring speakers from UNDP or similar platform who can share their journey and what they do in their roles. Once again thank you so much for giving this platform and I really appreciate it!
