Introducing Structure to Data Science Processes

Data scientists are inherently curious with a proclivity for thought-provoking, fact-based insights. However, insights alone cannot drive a proposed plan of action that will maximize profits. Failing to provide a clear understanding of how the results of their data mining will be applied in a business context leads to a myriad of casualties across the business. Discover best practices from industry leaders for changing the traditional team structures to bring business and data together and teaching data scientists to focus their efforts on the end goal.

Closing Keynote: Solving the Monetization and Trust Paradox

In a world of big data and increasing sources of information, data scientists have access to very personal information about their customers. This information allows businesses to achieve a better view of the customer, make more personalized recommendations, and enhance the overall experience with their services. While the benefits of this information have a tremendous impact on business capabilities, it poses ethical questions. How do we know when we’ve crossed the line of privacy for the customers? To what extent can this degree of information really be justified? How do we interpret the law when the landscape of technology and data sources is always evolving?
