#60 Data Privacy in the Age of COVID-19
Before the COVID-19 crisis, we were already acutely aware of the need for a broader conversation around data privacy: look no further than the Snowden revelations, Cambridge Analytica, the New York Times Privacy Project, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in Europe, and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). In the age of COVID-19, these issues are far more acute. We also know that governments and businesses exploit crises to consolidate and rearrange power, claiming that citizens need to give up privacy for the sake of security. But is this tradeoff a false dichotomy? And what type of tools are being developed to help us through this crisis? In this episode, Katharine Jarmul, Head of Product at Cape Privacy, a company building systems to leverage secure, privacy-preserving machine learning and collaborative data science, will discuss all this and more, in conversation with Dr. Hugo Bowne-Anderson, data scientist and educator at DataCamp.Links from the showFROM THE INTERVIEWKatharine on TwitterKatharine on LinkedInContact Tracing in the Real World (By Ross Anderson)The Price of the Coronavirus Pandemic (By Nick Paumgarten)Do We Need to Give Up Privacy to Fight the Coronavirus?

#59 Data Science R&D at TD Ameritrade
This week, Hugo speaks with Sean Law about data science research and development at TD Ameritrade. Sean’s work on the Exploration team uses cutting edge theories and tools to build proofs of concept. At TD Ameritrade they think about a wide array of questions from conversational agents that can help customers quickly get to information that they need and going beyond chatbots. They use modern time series analysis and more advanced techniques like recurrent neural networks to predict the next time a customer might call and what they might be calling about, as well as helping investors leverage alternative data sets and make more informed decisions.What does this proof of concept work on the edge of data science look like at TD Ameritrade and how does it differ from building prototypes and products? And How does exploration differ from production?

#58 Critical Thinking in Data Science
This week, Hugo speaks with Debbie Berebichez about the importance of critical thinking in data science. Debbie is a physicist, TV host and data scientist and is currently the Chief Data Scientist at Metis in NY.In a world and a professional space plagued by buzz terms like AI, big data, deep learning, and neural networks, conversations around skill sets and less than productive programming language wars, what has happened to critical thinking in data science and data thinking in general? What type of critical thinking skills are even necessary as data science, AI and machine learning become even more present in all of our lives and how spread out do they need to be across organizations and society?

#57 The Credibility Crisis in Data Science
This week, Hugo will be speaking with Skipper Seabold about the current and looming credibility crisis in data science. Skipper is Director of Data Science at Civis Analytics, a data science technology and solutions company, and also the creator of the statsmodels package for statistical modeling and computing in python. Skipper is also a data scientist with a beard bigger than Hugo's.They’re going to be talking about how data science is facing a credibility crisis that is manifesting itself in different ways in different industries, how and why expectations aren’t met and many stakeholders are disillusioned. You’ll see that if the crisis isn’t prevented, the data science labor market may cease to be a seller’s market and we’ll have big missed opportunities. But this isn’t an episode of Black Mirror so they’ll also discuss how to avoid the crisis, taking detours through the role of randomized control trials in data science, the rise of methods borrowed from econometrics and how to set realistic expectations around what data science can and can’t do.LINKS FROM THE SHOWDATAFRAMED GUEST SUGGESTIONSDataFramed Guest Suggestions (who do you want to hear on DataFramed?)FROM THE INTERVIEWSkipper on TwitterSkipper on GithubWhat's the Science in Data Science?
