How does information-driven product design use information theory to combine data science and security skills while developing profitable products?
Show Notes
In a nutshell, information theory defines a logarithmic measure that only depends on the probability of events and is impartial to the value of the event itself. In other words, information theory treats alien landing and earthquakes equally if they occur at the same frequency. This impartial perspective will guide our product development and simultaneously enable more data-driven design while restricting the information we reveal to the outside world for a potential misuse. In this talk, Nikon Rasumov, Director of Product Management at Symantec, discusses how to build more secure products and make hackers’ lives more difficult. He also discussed how building products that enable a strong foundation for data science and increase in revenue are important.
