Creating Effective Data Science Teams (305094)


*Mehar Singh, ProCogia 

Keywords: enterprise teams, data science, technique development

At ProCogia, we help our clients morph themselves into data-driven organizations. We have the privilege to help clients predict everything from network usage to store operating hours to customer behavior. But often the chasm that you need to overcome is step-change improvements in client performance and understanding the data. We have found that Data Science is a team sport that typically involves a design-thinking approach to build machine learning applications that are co-created with SMEs and users in mind. Data Science is as much of an art as it is a science, and when done right it can help in building conceptions and stories that reveal the mysteries of black-box techniques. It also helps develop solutions that transform interaction with high level analytics from an ordeal to the best part of a user’s day. During this session Mehar Pratap Singh, CEO and Co-Founder of ProCogia, will provide insights on creating effective data science teams for any organization. He will walk through adoption and development of novel techniques and offer suggestions along the way.
