In this episode of the Data Exchange I speak with Bruno Gonçalves, a data scientist working at the intersection of Data Science and Finance. I have known Bruno for several years and we met when I recruited him to teach several extremely popular conference tutorials and talks on machine learning and deep learning. Prior to shifting over to data science, he spent several years as a researcher focused on mathematical models in Epidemiology – a field with a rich history dating as far back as the 1920s.  This episode is devoted to tools and techniques for modeling epidemics.
