Today I speak with Humberto Stein Shiromoto, a senior data scientist at Telstra(*). We talk about doing science in a business context, the importance of being sceptical and to measure uncertainties, how to deal with failures and confirmation bias and the need to tell compelling data stories to promote positive change. Data science is not just software development with more data. We touch on the problem of changing data and how this affects models, the difference between DataOps and DevOps, the data mining lifecycle and the CRISP model, and hypothesis testing and the Dunning Kruger effect. Finally, we say when is a good idea to hire data scientists and when it isn't. You can follow Humberto on LinkedIn.
