In this talk Tamara will discuss the beginnings of data science in physics and astrophysics and show examples from her varied career. We will look at some famous uses of data science and explain why today every business wants and needs a data science department.   See for yourself how sexy data science is and experience the nerve wracking thrill of live coding.
