How Data Science builds Better Products


Data Science and Big Data are ushering in a new era in adaptive applications that learn from large and varied datasets and adjust their features based on the changing environment. This talk will look at how Data Science can be successfully bridged with Big Data Architectures and Agile Software Delivery to create a new class of software that answers the demands of today's rapidly-changing enterprises. Practical techniques and real-world case studies will highlight the approaches required to successfully build these exciting new enterprise tools.


As a Data Scientist and senior consultant at ThoughtWorks I help companies use data-driven approaches as a strategic advantage. Using expertise in scientific research and advanced analysis I build self-learning tools that help automate decision-making and uncover patterns in large amounts of data. I specialize in drawing connections between the approaches used in Data Science and the challenges organizations face. By leveraging data-smart architectures, advanced scientific models and adaptive software, I help companies convert enterprise data into actionable tools. I am an avid writer and public speaker on topics related to using data science to solve some of today's toughest challenges.
