Fake News and the Responsibility of Data Scientists
95% of statistics are made up.
Discussions about fact versus truth come up quite a bit these days, especially with the proliferation of “fake news” and the news media’s coverage of certain facts (and non-facts, for that matter). We hear chatter all over the place where folks bring up hot button issues and claim “90% of people agree with my fact!”and “I have proof that X happened — it’s a fact!” Sites like snopes.com, politifact.com, and factcheck.org exist to remove political bias and interpretation from these “facts,” but why would we need such things? Is it because reporters actively make up information and deliberately lie to viewers? Or could it be that they simply tweak hard facts just enough to fit them into their preferred narrative?

Have you ever used an out-of-date map where the static picture on your screen doesn’t quite reflect what’s going on in real life? If you have, you know this map is essentially useless and leaves you with no direction.
This exact problem has plagued marketing, sales, and customer experience teams when it comes to mapping their customers’ journeys. Companies will often spend large amounts of resources to build this incredible intertwined web of connections that make up their ideal customer journey maps. The problem is, these roadmaps are hypothesized journeys based on the organization’s interpretation of customer behavior and not rooted in fact. Furthermore, these static pictures are often outdated before or shortly after their deployment as customer attention spans are dynamic and therefore so are their ideal journeys.
As with many large organizations, creating a single version of the truth that decision-makers can act upon is a challenge. Office supply store Staples is no different. With over 79,000 employees, 2,000 locations, and operations in 26 different countries, it is easy to see why 75 weekly reports and upwards of 175 ad-hoc reports were not going to cut it. These reports were often outdated prior to even getting in the decision maker’s hands, which in turn reduced adoption and confidence in the analytic strategies that Staples aimed to pursue and drive growth from.
At Pandera Systems, we put a lot of emphasis on the story that data should tell. Through careful system and UI/UX architecture, it is possible to create toolsets that easily convey important insights with the context that matters to the people that matter. But how do you quantify the story you are trying to tell? Beyond that, how do you verify that it is being well received by the people it is intended to help?
It may sound arbitrary to some, but by simply focusing on the people, these systems are designed to help you get a grasp on the effectiveness of your systems. Google researchers have designed what they call the “HEART” framework to quantify and validate that UX designs. We have used this same framework to confirm the data stories we care about are being well-received. (more…)
