Towards Personal Data Science with Power BI

When:  May 16, 2019 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (GMT)
Associated with  Dublin Power BI User Group
Microsoft states that Power BI is "a suite of business analytics tools to analyze data and share insights." Does this mean Power BI can also be used for more than just building pretty dashboards?
In this session, we’ll explore how BI and Data Science are related and how Power BI can not only be used to democratize BI across the enterprise, but also to democratize Data Science!
No previous knowledge is required because, after a 5-minute data science jump start, we dive into a demo scenario using Azure Machine Learning and Power BI! Throughout the story accompanying the demo's, it will become clear how you too can get started practicing Personal Data Science. Or as Gartner calls it: Citizen Data Science

At the end of the session, not only will you know the differences, and resemblances, between the BI and data science processes, you'll also be able to follow the general data science process and know in what ways Personal Data Science is an extension of Personal BI (aka Self Service BI)
Attendees will know where Power BI can fit into the data science process (hint: not only at the end)
Attendees will know how to apply the above principles to generate re-usable output in a personal data science process
