From Good to Great: The 5 Skills You Need to Shine in Data Science
Almost three years ago, I switched from a career in academia to a career in business in a data science role. This used to be somewhat of a rare event, but today it is commonplace: not only is there a shortage of data scientists, but also people change careers... Read more
10 Compelling Machine Learning Ph.D. Dissertations for 2020
As a data scientist, an integral part of my work in the field revolves around keeping current with research coming out of academia. I frequently scour arXiv.org for late-breaking papers that show trends and reveal fertile areas of research. Other sources of valuable research developments are in the form... Read more
Why Causation Matters in Data Science
Inferring causality is vital to deriving actionable insights in product data science, similar to more established fields like public policy. Without understanding the causal impact, we cannot make influential product changes that will alter outcomes or behaviors in-line with product or policy goals. In my experience, because of an...
