So you´re a data scientist with limited spare time, or new to the world of data science. Welcome to a way of keeping up to date or learning new aspects of data science!
Following on from Podcasts for Developers, we look at Podcasts for Data Science, because podcasts are awesome.
Exploring Data Science and Machine Learning, the presenters of Linear Digressions are well informed and relaxed in their approach.
Podcasts are every week, some with guests and others not. Occasionally they go off track and spend the first 10 or 15 minutes in chat, but not every episode!
O'Reilly Data Show
Published every fortnight, the O'Reilly Data Show covers different aspects of big data and data science.
O'Reilly is the company known for publishing many books and videos on learning a variety of technical subjects
Most shows usually have an interview looking at specific technologies, case studies and new developments.
Focused on Machine Learning, Talking Machines publishes every fortnight and will keep you up to date on this fast/moving world.
The hosts have several sections including news and tech updates, but cover different technical and ethical issues in machine learning and data sciencel
One of the better podcasts, Data Skeptic is focused on data and has a more unusual format than other podcasts.
Half of the episode will be an in-depth interview with experts on data-related subjects, while the other half are miini episodes taking you through the basics of data science concepts with the hosts.
The podcasts are published weekly, alternating between the two formats.
