Data Science Demystified: A Crash Course for Attorneys

Wednesday, May 23, 2018 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
Boston Bar Association - 16 Beacon Street, Boston, MA


Learn how to wrangle data, spot patterns, and predict the future with machine learning in this hands-on crash course. Working with data from a simulated law firm, data scientist and former public defender, David Colarusso, will share free tools and methods for the analysis of data, big and small. No prior experience required.

Before the session, you will be provided with a set of preparatory materials, including a data challenge. Should you choose to accept it, you’ll spend the session learning and building your own machine learning algorithm, with the option of entering it in a battle of the bots against your peers. Either way, you’ll leave with an introductory understanding of machine learning and a set of tools that will allow you to transcend the lawyer’s default use of Excel for data handling.

Attendees should bring a laptop with them as this program will be interactive.
