Solving the Data Scientist's Dilemma – The Cold Start Problem
Description: Supervised machine learning is a great tool when you have labeled training data and known classes (outcomes and diagnoses) that you are trying to predict for new previously unseen data. But, the assumptions of labeled data and known classes are generally not true in unsupervised machine learning -- this is an example of a "cold start problem" -- when you have no prior knowledge to start with. This is a dilemma since unsupervised learning can be the path to true discovery through serendipitous data exploration and surprise detection in previously unseen data. We will discuss this challenge, various solutions, and some interesting results with illustrative examples. About the speaker Dr. Kirk Borne is the Principal Data Scientist and an Executive Advisor at global technology and consulting firm Booz Allen Hamilton based in McLean, Virginia USA. In those roles, he focuses on applications of data science, data analytics, machine learning, and artificial intelligence across a wide variety of disciplines. He also provides leadership and mentoring to multi-disciplinary teams of data scientists. He previously was Professor of Astrophysics and Computational Science at George Mason University for 12 years, where he taught, advised students, and performed research in the Data Science Bachelors program and the Computational Informatics Doctoral program. Prior to that, he worked 18 years on large data systems for NASA space science programs, including roles as Data Archive Project Scientist for NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and as the contract Program Manager in NASA's Space Science Data Operations Office. Kirk has a B.S. in Physics from LSU, and a Ph.D. in Astronomy from Caltech. He is a sought-after public speaker globally on data strategy topics. Since 2013, he has been identified as one of the top worldwide social influencers in Big Data and Data Science.
