Top Innovator John Thompson: Why Managing Analytics Teams & Data Scientists Is a Unique Problem

Has the management of data science teams kept up with the meteoric rise of the discipline? A recent Domino Data Lab ebook, The Data Science Innovator’s Playbook, explores new approaches and thinking on the problem, from top data science innovators who have had a hand in building some of the world’s most successful teams. Some of them say that managing data science and analytics is a distinct, new problem that demands fresh approaches and rethinking old ideas learned in managing other types of teams, such as IT, operations personnel, and software developers.

NVIDIA’s Mona Flores: How Medical AI and Federated Learning Power Innovation

What if machine learning and data scattered around the world held the keys to the cures for a variety of rare or new diseases? Until recently, it was often nearly impossible to use that data, due in part to the data privacy restrictions in place around the world. That’s starting to change, thanks to federated learning and the innovative work of doctors such as Mona Flores, head of medical AI at NVIDIA.

Model Management

High-standard ML validation with Deepchecks

We've blogged before about the importance of model validation, a process that ensures that the model is performing the way it was intended and that it solves the problem it was designed to solve. Validations and tests are key elements to building machine learning pipelines you can trust. We've also talked about incorporating tests in your pipeline, which many data scientists find problematic. The issues stem from the fact that not all data scientists feel confident about traditional code testing methods, but more importantly, data science is so much more than just code. When validating pipelines we need to think about verifying the data integrity, inspecting its distributions, validating data splits, model evaluation, model comparison etc. But how can we deal with such complexity and maintain consistency in our pipelines? Enter Deepchecks - an open-source Python package for testing and validating machine learning models and data.

The Case for Reproducible Data Science

Reproducibility is a cornerstone of the scientific method and ensures that tests and experiments can be reproduced by different teams using the same method. In the context of data science, reproducibility means that everything needed to recreate the model and its results such as data, tools, libraries, frameworks, programming languages and operating systems, have been captured, so with little effort the identical results are produced regardless of how much time has passed since the original project.
