In the TEDx video presentation below, Kevin Novak, Senior Data Scientist at Uber, provides a description and history of Uber and how Uber’s data hacking made their explosion possible. One useful aspect of his talk is when he focuses on the intersection of data and design. Novak contrasts the difference between the coders’ focus on data models and the marketing team’s focus on the product that model creates.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.
