Your Data Journey - Ask a Pro; Kenny Kwan

Sr Data Scientist at Tucows, Kenny Kwan joins us this week to chat about why it’s best to be a generalist when you’re starting your data career.

This week we’ll cover why it’s important to be able to get data yourself, what does it mean to have “communication skills” (hint, it involves cannolis ) and how to advocate for yourself and your projects.

Kenny takes us through his story from leaving the Dominican Republic to pursue his PhD in the US and ending up as a data scientist in Toronto. Also, he’s finally able become a Raptors fan this year because Kawhi isn’t around.

Let’s cut through the jargon, myths and nebulous world of data, machine learning and AI. Each week we’ll be unpacking topics related to the world of data and AI with Jansen & Victor, the awarding winning founders of 1000ML. Whether you’re in the data world already or looking to learn more about it, this podcast is for you.
