Renyi Hour: SocialPoint

This January the data science students at BGSE were lucky to have Sharon Biggar, Head of Analytics at Socialpoint, come in to talk about her innovative work at the mobile game leader and how they generate insights from 70TB of data about the tens of millions unique users who interact with a Socialpoint game every month.
Beyond just a snapshot of techniques and “stack” Sharon covered specific analyses that drove shareholder value, lessons learned in deciding on infrastructure, what she would have done differently and – quite interesting for new-to-market data scientists – the immense growth Socialpoint has experienced in recent years.
For more information about Socialpoint contact Sharon Biggar, or to be our next expert guest talk to Jordan McIver, data science student here in Barcelona at BGSE.
