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?
Pandera Systems Chief Data Officer, Matthew Thomas spoke with Kimberly Whitler of Forbes to explain why companies are turning to Chief Data Officers to generate more value out of data beyond the typical CIO and CMO roles.
Whitler (Forbes): Can you describe the CDO role?
Thomas: To truly appreciate the increasing need for the CDO’s role, one must first understand that 90 percent of the world’s data was created in the past two years alone. That’s a lot of information for a company to suddenly organize, secure and make sense of, let alone make a strategic decision on. The CDO emerged as organizations realized the need for someone to lead the management of all of this data as well as guide the organization in technology adoption and training necessary to storing and distributing it all.
Pandera Systems sat down with Managing Director, Kevin Curley, to learn first hand how Self Service Business Intelligence can help organizations capitalize on before thought weaknesses and complaints of their analytics projects. According to Kevin, all businesses are in quite the transition period as it stands right now in 2018. Most have realized the value that analytics can bring and have made decisions to implement central Business Intelligence platforms.
In 2018 it is pretty standard that all companies have at least some sort of Business Intelligence Initiatives ongoing. But, this doesn’t imply that all add value to their organizations through data-driven insights. With that said, there are key things to be aware of when on the never-ending journey that is Business Intelligence. Here are our top 7 essentials of a successful business intelligence strategy.
Boston, MA – My name is Brian O’Connor, and a year ago I made the decision to change my career and enter the innovative world of Data Analytics. Everyone wants to provide value and feel useful. Unfortunately, in your typical banking role that is not always the case. Seeing no growth path and lacking the feel of bringing actual value to my clients, I made the decision to enter the Level Education boot camp. Since then, I have been brought on the Pandera Systems team as a Business Intelligence Analyst and couldn’t be happier with where my career is heading (not to mention the value I am providing to my clients). I was honored to give a speech this past Friday at a Boston WeWork to a group of potential students interested in making the leap into the data analytics space.
