The buzz: “If we have data, let’s look at data. If all we have are opinions, let’s go with mine!” (Jim Barksdale).
Machine Learning is impacting core business processes, but many companies are struggling with how to operationalize it. The key – and what data scientists spend 80% of their efforts on – is having the right data. What is good data? The experts speak. Ginger Gatling, SAP: “Chemistry is the study of matter, but I prefer to see it as the study of change” (Walter White, Breaking Bad). Blake Howitt, SAP: “If everyone is thinking alike, then someone isn’t thinking” (Gen. George S. Patton).
David Quirk, SAP: “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second-best time is now” (Chinese Proverb). John Schitka, SAP: “We classify things for the purpose of doing something to them. Any classification which does not assist manipulation is worse than useless” (Randolph Bourne). Join us for Can’t Live Without You: Predictive Machine Learning Needs Data Management – Part 2.
