The Women in Data Science Conference (WiDS 2018) aims to inspire and educate data scientists worldwide, regardless of gender, and support women in the field. Started originally at Stanford, today more than 100 locations share simultaneously one day on the latest data science research and applications. All genders participate, but only women on stage!
Frauke hosted the German branch of WiDS at Mannheim and interviews in this session two of the participants on their work and experiences in data science. Alicia Hickey from Berlin is an expert on fintech and security issues, Evgenia Samoilova is working in the International Program in Survey and Data Science (IPSDS) on factors influencing engagement in digital environments.
