First stop at a data science conference in 2018. I had come to meet a cruise line client in Miami. Stopped on the way back for half a day at Data Science Salon, Miami. Boutique conference. Interesting talk by Doug Vegas on monetization and productization of data sciences. Key thoughts of that talk:
• Data Sciences teams need to start taking the reins in an organization.
• Data Scientists need to start calling the shots.
• Data Science is a revenue generating function.
Especially like the last point.
