Podcast: Putting data science to work saving lives

Not many people can see a link between fighting fires, banking and tailor-made dog food, but not everyone sees the world the same way as Apollo Gerolymbos. In an hour long podcast, Apollo – London Fire Brigades Head of Data Analytics – talks about all things data.

He discusses how and why he became the LFB’s lead analyst, how the open data of the London Datastore is an invaluable resource and how data is being used to help firefighters save lives. Apollo also discusses what it means to be a data scientist, and why we shouldn’t be hung up on labels and instead focus on providing meaningful insights.

Find an hour, make a coffee and enjoy the podcast!
