I propose a new word for data science for sparking new thinking. Signuology is defined as the study of sets of characteristic predictive signals contained within data in the form of combined features of the data that are characteristic of an observation of interest within the data.

The terms data mining and data structure imply rigid and discrete characteristics. A signal has more flexibility, borrowing from ideas contained in the superposition principle in physics. One can take the…

What makes a great CEO?

First of all, the answer to that question depends on who raises it: An investor will likely come up with a different answer than an employee. What if you asked a CEO?
