Data science is the key to business success in the information economy. This course will teach you about best practices in deploying a data science capability for your organization. Technology is the easy part—the hard part is creating the right organizational and delivery framework in which data science can succeed.

Stephen Brobst will discuss the necessary skill sets for a successful data scientist and the environment that will allow them to thrive. He will draw a strong distinction between “data R&D” and “data product” capabilities within an enterprise and speak to the different skill sets, governance, and technologies needed across these areas. Brobst will also explore the use of open data sets and open source software tools to enable best results from data science in large organizations, as well as the many pitfalls and how to avoid them. Best practices in choosing AI/ML approaches will be discussed, along with pitfalls related to model bias, training set selection, goal setting, and model half-life management.
