Join The Data Incubator and DataScience.com CEO, Ian Swanson, for the next installment of our free online webinar series, Data Science in 30 minutes: Building Data Science Capabilities That Scale.

Data scientists and machine learning engineers saw the highest job growth of any role last year, yet few companies have successfully turned their aggressive hiring into profitable, scalable data science capabilities. In this session, DataScience.com CEO Ian Swanson shares lessons learned from building a platform that supports collaborative data science for a variety of clients, from startups to Fortune 500 companies. Learn about the technology gaps, roadblocks to innovation and efficiency, and talent retention challenges that have proven to be detrimental to data science success in an enterprise environment — and how to mitigate them.

Michael Li founded The Data Incubator, a New York-based training program that turns talented PhDs from academia into workplace-ready data scientists and quants. The program is free to Fellows, employers engage with the Incubator as hiring partners.

Previously, he worked as a data scientist (Foursquare), Wall Street quant (D.E. Shaw, J.P. Morgan), and a rocket scientist (NASA). He completed his PhD at Princeton as a Hertz fellow and read Part III Maths at Cambridge as a Marshall Scholar. At Foursquare, Michael discovered that his favorite part of the job was teaching and mentoring smart people about data science. He decided to build a startup to focus on what he really loves.

Michael lives in New York, where he enjoys the Opera, rock climbing, and attending geeky data science events.
