Show Notes
  • Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Let’s talk about your background, as it’s very rich both in the breadth of technology as well as the industries where you’ve applied your skills.
  • Topic 2 - Let’s start with the basics of what companies do when they hire or engage data scientists. At what point do they typically shift their thinking (or problem solving) from needing Statistical Analysis to understanding when and where AI or ML are a better fit?
  • Topic 3 - Lucidworks specializes in Enterprise Search, and is one of the primary sponsors of both Apache Lucene and Solr. How do those technologies fit into the Enterprise today, and who are newer AI/ML frameworks being built in conjunction with them?
  • Topic 4 - As you’re working with Data Scientists, where do you see their interests evolving, or what types of problems interest them today? How do you connect and communicate this to business challenges and business leaders?
  • Topic 5 - Can you share some of the research that you’ve been recently focused on that begin to start making it easier for non Data Scientists to start answering questions in a faster or easier manner?
