Random Thoughts

  • Systems from should 'just work'.
  • Details matter. We sweat the small stuff so that the people can concentrate on the big stuff (data analysis ==> wise information from their data).
  • There is evidence of thought, intelligence, care in everything we do. For our work thought, intelligence and care includes a understanding of data science and software engineering practice.

Data Science

Data science is the study of the generalizable extraction of knowledge from data ... It incorporates varying elements and builds on techniques and theories from many fields, including signal processing, mathematics, probability models, machine learning, computer programming, statistics, data engineering, pattern recognition and learning, visualization, uncertainty modeling, data warehousing, and high performance computing with the goal of extracting meaning from data and creating data products.
