Applying Data Science is going to be important to new scenarios and new kinds of transactions at hand. Hence understanding business use cases of Blockchain technology whether it be in cryptocurrency or elsewhere would be key.

Topics we are planning to discuss:

~ By example (Ethereum)
~ By example for a Business application (Home buying or Finance)
~ Blockchain and Data
~ What to look for in Future

PRA Group Interaction: We are excited to have Jacob Hoover from PRA Group to come and talk about the company, open positions, and experience they are looking for.

Complete beginners are welcome. Let me know if you have any questions and I hope to see you there.

Cheers!
