Real-World Data Science Challenge: When Is “Good Enough” Actually “Good Enough”

Nothing like a devastating catastrophe to bring a bit of reality into the world of IoT and data science.  The recent crashes of the new Boeing 737 Max have been attributed to a single point of failure – a sensor – in the design of the complex navigation system[1]. To summarize the situation:Boeing’s new 737 MAX included larger, more efficient engines than the previous generation and as such, the engines were placed on a different location on the wings affecting the…See More

Using Data Science and Google Cloud to Win March Madness…Well, Not Really

I suck at the NCAA March Madness® bracket selection process.  I let my personal biases get in the way of making decisions based upon the numbers.  I over-rate the well-known Big Ten conference and under-rate the lesser-known Mid Majors and fall in love with the most recent team I saw on TV win their conference tournament.  You see, I fall prey to all the common decision-making traps – recency bias, over-confidence, anchoring, risk aversion, framing – that doom my brackets from the very…See More
