Building Data Science, Seminar 2, Proliferating Data Science throughout the Org


Today, advanced analytics is typically the domain of the data scientist. As new tools emerge that simplify the process of managing the analytics lifecycle, more and more of the organization will be empowered to do analytics. At the same time, the business will expect that the mean time to insight goes down over time. First the business user will be enabled to do prediction on the fly, then over time--provided that the right tools emerge—analytics will be crowd sourced by everyone in the organization.

In this series we will describe how
o Analytics will be diffused throughout the organization

o Likely tools which will enable data scientists to tamp down the mean time to insight

o Hindrances to business and non-analysts users to perform prediction

o How building data science teams will evolve over time

    Good Lord was the traffic bad!
    Can we get some predictive analytics on Boston traffic after events such as Boston Strong?!?!

      Only if you crowd source it.

      1 memorial drive has a garage, which charged $10 flat rate after 4 or 5pm.

      Longfellow bridge is closed, so I would take either the Washington st bridge or O'Brien hwy and make a left on Austin st/Land Blvd, then left at the fork to get on Memorial. Their garage works, though there is also street parking on Wadsworth that is free after 6, to get to that go past 1 memorial dr, then right on Ames, right on Amherst, then left on Wadsworth. You can also get to it from third street by making a left on Broadway and cutting through the Sloan parking lot. Also, the MIT hayward lot (on hayward st, 1 block West of Wadsworth) allows parking after 5pm.
