Data Science Slugs
Data Science Slugs (DSS) is an organization that was founded at University of California, Santa Cruz
in the Fall of 2018 to gather diverse, like-minded people and those who are forward thinking people.
Members of DSS realize the significance and impact Data Science has brought to our
current generation and what kinds of benefits it will bring to the future development of human beings.
This is the spirit of DSS, a forward-thinking and optimistic group of individuals gathered together to
learn and bring on the next generation of Data Science technologies.
LeadershipAs a Research Officer of DSS, my primary responsibility is to find real-world opportunity for members and partnering with businesses for work opportunities. Networking and creating wonderful connections exposes members to important Data Science recruiters and personales, giving them a huge leap in this highly demanding field.
Furthermore, it's vitally important that members get something out of this organization and to prepare members for Data Science careers, and learning already established and up-to-date Data Science techniques is one of our primary goals in this organization. With coordinance with other organization officers, I design and develop technical workshops to cover various skill levels. Additionally, lecturing students on fundamental and advanced topics of Data Science, which includes statistics and machine learning, is another necessary input our organization offers to its members. We aren't just an organization for future optimists, we are an organization whose goals are to spread the awesome possibilities of Data Science through interactive learning.
I also manage and mentor several teams of students to plan and orchestrate machine learning projects, which brings me to the next topic of competitive programming.
Competitive ProgrammingAs an organization filled with very diverse backgrounds but similar goals, it is important to train members on Data Science techniques used in everyday work. Setting up competitions of different level teams enables all members to participate in their respective categories effectively and fairly.
