IEshikawa is an annual event organized by the University of the Philippines Circle of Industrial Engineering Majors (UP CIEM) that aims to impart a range of relevant topics to strengthen the skills of future industrial engineers, to provide alternative avenues for growth and learning, and to instill a sense of nationalism for the betterment of the country.
In its 14th installment, IEshikawa comes back to delve deeper into data science and explore its endless possibilities and opportunities. In a world where information is power, it is an advantage to be able to convert data into a meaningful basis for decision-making. This year, through ENIGMA: Beyond 0’s and 1’s, IEshikawa aims to encourage the community to go beyond the numbers and integrate data science to IE concepts and practices.
Data Science is a combination of different tools, algorithms, and technology with the goal to recognize patterns from raw data and use them as basis for predictions and actions on succeeding events. It is a forward-looking approach of analyzing the past to be able to come up with informed decisions for the future.
With this, IEshikawa 14 calls on trailblazers and change-makers to venture into data science and transform their views from it being enigmatic or incomprehensible to being a valuable tool to move forward towards progress. #IEshikawa14 #BeyondTheNumbers.
