"If you don't like data prep, you do what my then-boss did many years ago and train a programmer (me in that case) to do it for you. Personally, I think data prep is fun and the process ended up teaching me a great deal about the modeling…"
I do have a concern about lower level people losing their jobs and possibly having to change careers because of the sins of their bosses, but that happens in every bubble and is probably unavoidable (I'm sure you're old enough to…"
"It is somewhat of a concern, but not as big of one as it would have been if "data science" were actually new. The bubble will assuredly burst, but those researchers who have been straightforward with their superiors and clients about…"

"There are some obvious areas in which the flat earth hypothesis falls apart and which have been known since ancient times, and which are readily verifiable by lay observers:

"A couple of points:

2. Markets change, so what worked in the past might not work in the future.
In the end, business success is predicated on…"
"I daresay that while there are certainly at least a few data scientists who occasionally dress in the same manner as the woman portrayed in the photo, none is foolish enough to carry either her books or her electronics into the water with her."
"I daresay that nearly all of these points should apply to science generally. Cherry picking strikes me as an especially serious problem which causes me to routinely suspect any research published or sponsored by a for-profit firm."
