This month, we're crunching the numbers. Our speakers' topics: sports analytics, math in art, and of course, data! Boston Globe baseball writer Alex Speier will discuss the game-changing effects of analytics; TED-Ed video creator Natalya St. Clair will talk about the relationship of numbers and art; and RedPoint Global Inc. CTO and Co-Founder George Corugedo will share how data drives his company. Come by and join the conversation!
