Physics and Astronomy Colloquium – Adam Kelleher
September 10 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm
UNC-CH Physics and Astronomy Colloquium
Adam Kelleher, Columbia University, Buzzfeed (recently)
“Physics, Data Science, and Causal Inference”
I’ll describe my career path into data science from the Physics PhD program at UNC. I’ll discuss a few projects from throughout my data science career. I’ll try to give a realistic view of what data science is, cutting through some of the hype around machine learning and artificial intelligence. I’ll discuss the value of transferring methods from other sciences into data science, and focus on causal inference as an example.
