About this Episode

For today's show, I'm joined by Nyalleng Moorosi, Senior Data Science Researcher at The Council for Scientific & Industrial Research or CSIR, in Pretoria, South Africa.

In our discussion, we discuss two major projects that Nyalleng is apart of at the CSIR, one, a predictive policing use case, which focused on understanding and preventing rhino poaching in Kruger National Park, and the other, a healthcare use case which focuses on understanding the effects of a drug treatment that was causing pancreatic cancer in South Africans. Along the way we talk about the challenges of data collection, data pipelines and overcoming sparsity. This was a really interesting conversation that I'm sure you'll enjoy.
