Scotland Data Science & Technology MeetUp

This is a group for anyone interested in Data Science, Big Data, Analytics and Technology trends. We started this group to build a community to discuss general insights into the market and share personal experiences of working and operating in this area. We hope to cover skills shortages, technological advancements and organisational implications in Data Science and Technology during our series of meetups. All skill levels are welcome.

    “I have an opportunity for you…”

    That’s a phrase I’ve come to reflect on as a firm retort to fellow marketers who drear at the changes experienced in the consumer sphere in recent times. When you look at some of the headlines of data-driven perspectives on consumer finances today you really can’t help but be overcome by “doom and gloom”:

    aging population

    move from buying to renting

    “polarisation” of population

    generation gap

    tech changes and automation

    loss of confidence in financial suppliers

    But when you challenge what consumer data really tells us, I’m not hearing necessarily that the future will be worse – rather that it will most certainly be different.

    Rob will be here to discuss these points in details - See full blog -
