The Innovation Challenge

Originally published at:

Unlike many Data Scientists, I don’t have a PhD in Math, Statistics or Computer Science, I don’t even have a PhD for that matter. I believe that is the main reason why I don’t get stuck on complex algorithms and endlessly debate about which one of them would potentially solve a problem, as I see so many Data Scientist do. I tend to look at things from a business perspective and focus on what the desired outcome has to be, before diving into a pile of data and figuring out what type of algorithms could solve my problem.
