The Zen of data science at YOW! Data 2018

Dr Eugene Dubossarsky gave an updated version of his iconic presentation, “The Zen of Data Science” at YOW! Data 2018:

What makes data science such a different field? Why is it such a challenge to structure, manage and capture the value of data science? This presentation will focus on the key issues around the practice of discovery, (“science”) and how it differs from the practice of building new things (“engineering”). Other questions addressed will include: How do organisations manage and leverage the value of data science? What are the key “unknown unknowns” that managers miss so often, with disastrous results? What are the cultural, procedural, managerial differences between “scientists” and engineers in a modern, data-driven workplace?

Data, analytics methods and metrics are in short supply when it comes to the most important decisions facing an organisation, and senior executive engagement with analytics remains tentative as a result. But what if there was an unambiguous KPI for measuring decision making effectiveness? And what if this method also led to reliably, measurably better decision making? And that identification of good decisions makers (potential or actual) was a side benefit of this method?
