Ayasdi’s Max Song wrote a very compelling piece over at Medium to mark his 23rd birthday.  You can find it here. The post covers his path to becoming a data scientist and how his persistence brought him to Ayasdi.  It is too good to try and summarize so I won’t do it that disservice.  Impressive […]

I prefer “Data Science”, which is the automatic (or semi-automatic) extraction of knowledge from data. That is here to stay, it’s not a fad. The amount of data generated by our digital world is growing […]
