TECH TUESDAY: Data Science at scale, the case of Farfetch

Language of the event: Portuguese

This talk requires previous knowledge on the subject.

We, at Farfetch, have been running Data Science projects, in production, for the last 4 years. Our aim is to create agile, flexible teams that strike the right balance between delivering value to the platform, doing fundamental research and still having some time left for the cool-stuff(tm).

In this talk we will go over some of those projects, how it impacts the business and what it actually means to do Data Science in this industry.

Spoiler alert: it’s 10% science (come find out about the other 90%!)
