What IS Data Science?
Transcript of What IS Data Science?
Making things in our world more intelligent
What IS A Data Scientist?
Who Are You?
Founder Data Science Linux
Lead Data Scientist, Accenture
Computer Science BA
Designed hardware devices for voice controlled medical beds
Casino game hacking -- Poker Variants
Cognitive Science and Human Behavior
Phones, we can talk to them
Isn't this just Analytics?
They sort-a-kinda know what we want, but not really, yet kinda creepy
A system in data science generally has action awareness (it gets notifications) and on-the-fly updates
Data Design and Manipulation
Machine Learning / Statistics
What is their distinction?
Deploy models anywhere
from a database to a washing machine
End to End Systems with fluid pipelines
Batch, Near-Realtime, Realtime
No assumptions, truly data driven model development
Rather than assumption based
vs. Project Mentality
Where do you put them?
Not IT. Aligned with Business Strategy.
After all: Business uses data to make Business Decisions
Big data isn't just measured in diskspace
1 billion edges in a graph is small on disk, big on cpu
Not Just Database
Not Just Infrastructure Needs to Support These, Models Do Too
Not a Replacement -- An Augmentation
Think special forces.
everyone needs those, but do you fight the war with them?
Approaches to Solving Problems
Last thing you want is a telephone problem, communication is key.
But, How do we know?
Critical for Business Leaders
Or How do we get BETTER?
Executing Strategic Tactical Missions
More like ...
What are you talking about?
1. Approaches to Problem Solving
2. Data Science vs. Analytics?
3. What IS and WHY Data Science
Do you assume nothing and account for everything? When variables have a complex relationships
Temperature = Hot | Cold | Warm
Wear = Shorts | Coat | Pants
OR do you target specifically and adjust accordingly?
When variable relationship is better understood.
Being = Mother | Girlfriend | Grandmother | Dog
Action = Kiss | Call | Hug | Play
We need both and use both
Dunno, it's the problem not the semantics
Data Science + Analytics
