Rap battle music video

Hey all, happy Inspire week!

 

Between sessions on Day 1, we played a rap battle video between a "data scientist" and a "classical statistician." If you were watching the chat feed, a bunch of you went crazy for the video so I thought I'd share it again here!

 

A little back story - we wanted to put out a podcast series looking at data science through the lens of statistics, then take a deep dive into causality. @SydneyF was our guest host for the series, and during a prep conversation with @NeilR and @TaraM, she described her vision of a "statistics vs. data science rap battle." The idea was born! 

 

Video and podcast episode links below - enjoy!

I generally do not like rap music at all, but I absolutely LOVED this!

The video is hilarious, but I love the song even more. It's in my Spotify Liked Songs playlist. Got a great beat. My wife just told me to turn it down.

@Joe_Lipski@TheOC, what a good idea, would love to get @andyuttley on stage!

 

We don't have an acoustic version... yet! Maybe this should serve as an unofficial call for covers of the song 😍

@MaddieJ there was an acoustic song (about Python's) that I heard on Day 3, I think it might have been in the final keynote... It was a women singing with her guitar which was very good, so was wondering if you had a copy that you could share/link
