This panel, presented as part of the ABAI Professional Development Series, explores novel applications of behavior analysis and multidisciplinary approaches to data science. Data science is a field that relies on scientific methods to understand and analyze information using data. Behavior analysts can leverage data science tools and techniques to strengthen analyses, more accurately describe and predict behavior, measure intervention effects, manage large data sets, and improve decision making. Data science has immediate and direct implications for practitioners and researchers conducting applied, translational, and experimental analyses. For those who have not received formal training, these topics can be intimidating. The goal of this panel is to increase accessibility by providing the audience with basic information about what data science is as well as an opportunity to ask questions to seasoned scientists. Behavior analysts, students, practitioners, and researchers interested in learning more about coding, machine learning, and/or managing large data sets are invited to come to this informational question and answer session!
