Is Data Science Free-to-Play or Pay-to-Win?

April 11, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Scotland Data Science & Technology Meetup and Merkle Aquila are hosting this debate in Merkle Aquila’s brand new Edinburgh office.

We are all very used to the idea of bringing together multiple open source tools and solutions to solve client problems. The cost of this approach is usually in low-level technical expertise and time. There are more and more proprietary software solutions that aim to make this experience more accessible, slick, rapid, and integrated. Will these two approaches co-exist in future? Are we moving towards a situation where data science requires financial buy-in to take part at a high level?

There will be two teams of two (one arguing either side), each team will cover an opening argument, rebuttal and Q&A.
