The inaugural Advertising and Data Science Congress (ADS-CON), hosted last month by Media6Degrees (m6d) and NYU Stern Center for Business Analytics, brought forth a range of speakers from the industry to academia to discuss the impacts of the data science revolution on advertising and society.  Over 150 attendees, including representatives from the IAB, American Express, Google, Sony Music, Starcom, Xaxis and Goldman Sachs, gathered to learn and ponder the question: In the age of data science, is there a place for intuition?
