[ TIPS & TRICKS OF THE WEEK]

Data Analytics Success Starts with Empowerment
Being Data Driven is not as much of a tech challenge as it is an adoption challenge. Adoption has it’s root in cultural DNA of any organization. Great data driven organizations rungs the data driven culture into the corporate DNA. A culture of connection, interactions, sharing and collaboration is what it takes to be data driven. Its about being empowered more than its about being educated.

[ DATA SCIENCE Q&A]

Q:What is better: good data or good models? And how do you define ‘good”? Is there a universal good model? Are there any models that are definitely not so good?
A: * Good data is definitely more important than good models
* If quality of the data wasn’t of importance, organizations wouldn’t spend so much time cleaning and preprocessing it!
* Even for scientific purpose: good data (reflected by the design of experiments) is very important

How do you define good?
– good data: data relevant regarding the project/task to be handled
– good model: model relevant regarding the project/task
– good model: a model that generalizes on external data sets

Is there a universal good model?
– No, otherwise there wouldn’t be the overfitting problem!
– Algorithm can be universal but not the model
– Model built on a specific data set in a specific organization could be ineffective in other data set of the same organization
– Models have to be updated on a somewhat regular basis

Are there any models that are definitely not so good?
– ‘all models are wrong but some are useful” George E.P. Box
– It depends on what you want: predictive models or explanatory power
– If both are bad: bad model
