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!

Hey folks!


Here with an update on the acoustic data song you heard after one of the keynotes. We don't have access to share the video broadly, but I'm happy to pass along the artist's name (Rebecca Perlmutter), as well as her LinkedIn and website.


So glad you enjoyed the music!
