Abstract: With the objective of giving back to the community, the talk structures a particular journey into Data Science, in such a way that is able to provide valuable insights for those who are either starting their way into the field and, for those who are already established in it. The content follows a simple enough timeline, starting with getting into the field, structuring a DS team, building the necessary processes, establishing the relevant methodologies and then, iterating and refining the funcional framework while solving the arising challenges. Part of this journey are also the projects and the inherent technology, topics that are presented as overviews of the current instances that help build a strategy on data.

Short Bio: Rui Pedro has an integrated master’s degree in Computer and Telematics Engineering from the University of Aveiro.
Started as a 5G Networks Researcher at the Instituto de Telecomunicações’ NAP group, under Prof. Drª Susana Sargento supervision, with an active collaboration with Altice Labs, under Drº Pedro Neves supervision. Research work was focused on Autonomic Networks, Zero Touch Management, Data Frameworks and Complex Event Processing engines.
Currently, he is the Lead Data Scientist of the Cognitive Team at Altice Labs, a team that was co-created by him, Luís Cortesão and Pedro Neves, as a natural consequence of previous research. Alongside with the Cognitive Team, he has been bridging the gap between Data Science and Business Units within the company, by building AI/ML solutions and, exposing ideas on technology and data.

Breakout sessions:
Come and network with other Data Scientist enthusiasts, Don’t be shy! Bring your topics, bring your questions, bring your friends and network with us. We are going to have a few topics prepared but feel free to wander around and engage with peers.
