Abstract

The field of Data Science is a fast-changing one: not a week goes by without some new and exciting development. As professionals in the field, we strive to stay up to date with the cool kids – while not losing focus on our own work. In this roundtable we’ll discuss that challenge, the different ways to approach it, and the varied resources we might use to that aim.

 

We will also share our own experiences and struggles, and talk about how we might achieve that holy grail: the perfect balance between exploring new topics and our day-to-day work.
