#24 Mistakes in Building a DS Capability by Felipe Flores


This is a different type of episode! This episode is a presentation I recently did at a large financial services institution. I presented on 5 Mistakes and Lessons Learned in Driving Business Value with Data Science and the Cloud.

I talk about:
- Using Lean Startup and Design Thinking principles in Data Science
- The importance of staying close to your end customer and what that looks like in practice
- The difference between machine learning for machines and for humans
- What is the purpose of ML/AI and how you can bring that thinking into your organisation
- What using ML for humans looks like
- Using data from other areas
- Leverage the flexibility of the cloud
