AI-Driven Transformation & the Impact on Marketing

Around two decades ago, marketing existed as a soft function within organizations. There is no denying its importance, of course, but from an organizational perspective, it was a function hard to measure in terms of impact on the bottom-line.

Judgements: A Potential Threat To Models Everywhere

Data Science and Law are in a lot of ways vastly different; however they do have a few things in common: both professions rely heavily on historical data and patterns . Certain supervening phenomena can cause a break in these patterns; these distinct deviations from a learned practice (either by a machine learning algorithm or through pure human experience) can be problematic.

Those of us in Legal Modelling know that when building and maintaining models we are constantly looking…

So it begins.

I spent way too much time sorting through all the information collected on Data Science.  All I knew in the beginning is that it had something to do with math and statistics and algorithms (which are love), and computers (which are hate not so much love).  It's finally starting to fall into place.  I made a preliminary list of all the things I should learn.  In the process, I stumbled upon Clare Corthell's "Open Source Data Science Master's…

Next Steps to a Career in Data Science

I am finishing up my masters in Predictive Analytics at Northwestern which the curriculum has been my only experience in modeling data. All of my data related professional experience has been within the database layer as well as data visualization which I have a great passion for.

I feel that I am at a vital stage in my career as I want to start down the data science path but the experience required in the field is quite extensive.

I would like to ask for any recommendations…

Big Data in the Enterprise

Companies are capturing and digitizing more information than ever before. According to IDC, the world produced one zettabyte (1,000,000,000,000 gigabytes) of data annually. Fueling this data explosion are over five billion mobile phones, 30 billion pieces of content shared on Facebook per month, 20 billion Internet searches per month, and millions of networked sensors connected to mobile phones, energy meters, automobiles, shipping containers, retail packaging and more. Big Data is a…

Big Data....Small Wars

Of all the ills that impede development around the world, persistent conflict may be the most pernicious and the most widespread. As the World Bank noted in its April 2011 report, insecurity “has become a primary development challenge of our time. One-and-a-half billion people live in areas affected by fragility, conflict, or large-scale, organized criminal violence, and no low-income fragile or conflict-affected country has yet achieved a single United Nations Millennium Development…
