Disney Data & Analytics Conference: From 'Once Upon a Time' to 'Happily Ever After' w/Data!


When I think of Disney, I think of cartoons. (What's YOUR favorite Disney memory?) Why the heck is Disney holding it's 4th annual Data & Analytics conference? Well, think about it. So far this year Disney movies (Dumbo, Toy Story 4, Lion King, Alladin, Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Endgame) grossed over $8 billion. They've grown to become one of the most powerful companies in the world, with a $164 billion market cap. How do they do this so consistently? Data, analytics, machine learning, computer graphics, immersive technology, and even robotics (Disney invented "animatronics"!). Let's chat in social VR, aboard a rocket-powered magic castle, carrying a 12-foot statue of a mouse!

This social virtual reality meetup is not intended to be overly technical, tho if you are a data & analytics rocket scientist, please fill us in on your work!
