COVID-19 and the Importance of “Obsolete” Data

When the coronavirus broke out in the Wuhan province of China in December 2019, Taiwan was immediately in harm’s way.  Taiwan is less than 100 miles from the China mainland, and as recently as January there were a dozen roundtrip flights between Wuhan and Taipei every week. Yet as of March 19, Taiwan has only 108 cases of the coronavirus and one death.  Why?Taiwan used the data from 2003 SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) epidemic that infected over 8,000 globally and killed 774,…See More

Healthcare or the Economy?  Bull!  It’s Healthcare AND the Economy

We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to address one of modern society’s biggest challenges – the choice between healthcare or the economy.  For the past several decades, we have treated this as an “either or” choice between one or the other; that to improve the economy we must reduce healthcare spending or to improve healthcare we must sacrifice the economy.  To that sort of thinking I say BULL!The coronavirus COVID-19 situation is showing us a very important lesson – that healthcare and…See More

"Bill, thanks for sharing. I agree.  Data monetization is the old school approach of just selling/licensing raw data.  However, selling data insight is where the new real value exists.  "

Formalizing the Field of Data Engineering

Much like we have Chemical Engineering and Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering, it is time to formalize of field of Data Engineering.  This is a special two-part series on trends and requirements leading to the formalization of the Field of Data Engineering.“Data is the new oil…in much the same way that oil fueled economic growth in the 20th century, data will fuel economic growth in the 21st century.”To further raise the credibility of data as the economic fuel for the next…See More

Data Science Lessons from The Coronavirus

As I write this blog, we are still in the early stages of the coronavirus crisis.  It is a scary situation which has caused hoarding, panic, fake news, lies, stock market turmoil and irrational behaviors.  All indications suggest we will survive this crisis, but it is truly not one of mankind’s best moments.But learnings abound in all situations, so let me share what data…See More

"Why don't you use a asymptotic model for your first effect? Something like: y = a + b * e ^ (-xe) where you can choose your parameters a, b and c."

Schmarzo’s Economic Digital Asset Valuation Theorem Formulas

I’ve had several folks tell me that if I can’t convert the “effects” in the Schmarzo "Economic Digital Asset Valuation Theorem” into mathematical equations, that my quest for a Nobel Prize in Economics would be greatly hindered.  So, I enlisted the help of my senior data science team of Wei Lin, Mauro Damo and Yong Zhang to help me address this problem (they were only diverted from small projects related to preserving our rainforests, improving healthcare and reducing carbon emissions).As a…See More
