Good to note that prescriptive models really don't exist "Prescriptive models for success, most of these have serious and toxic side effects, especially in the early days"; hard work and wisdom are still required.
Thank you for an excellent presentation on many levels. The Data Scientist should be a word smith of the first degree and analyze the phraseology of their own questions and have a teammate that is the "antagonist" to challenge them for clarity.
@reimagine - interesting question. The one prognos I have is that next year is going to be less interesting than the years that follow. There's going to be churn as people who are not up with this try to make sense of it, and do something because it is the hottest thing.
@mcjonsey, I would start with establishing a vision and a roadmap that is grounded in the business priorities, and considers the organization, departmental functions and what is already in place. And to identify the "questions" that will frame the collection of data that willl be used to answer those Q's. and then the tech that underpins that capability
Establishing an Issue Visualization and Acceptance Policy and Methodology is very important to Big Data Value. This approach allows us to break down a problem into its components using Strategic Analytics.
Audio is working better now. As long as the time meter doesn;t go all the way to the right, it appears to work. I also made sure all those little colored columns on the far-right were clickrd=on/filled-in. That seemd to help.
Very unusual to see the slidedeck offered before the day of the presentation; also quite brave; as most good presentations use slides only to leverage what the presenter is saying - not just as a guide to lip-syncing. By putting the slides out ahead of time; they are trusting that we won't jump to too many wrong conclussions about the message in the presentation.
I looked through the slides; and am very impressed. Rather than thinking "Ok, now I know the message; why bother with attending the presentation" or "Ok, now I know the message, and I don't agree with it; so why bother sitting through the presentation"; I want to attend to get the whole message - then I'll make up my mind.
