In this episode, i’m joined by Clare Gollnick, CTO of Terbium Labs, to discuss her thoughts on the “reproducibility crisis” currently haunting the scientific landscape.

For a little background, a “Nature” survey in 2016 showed that more than 70% of researchers have tried and failed to reproduce another scientist’s experiments, and more than half have failed to reproduce their own experiments. Clare gives us her take on the situation, and how it applies to data science, along with some great nuggets about the philosophy of data and a few interesting use cases as well. We also cover her thoughts on Bayesian vs Frequentist techniques and while we’re at it, the Vim vs Emacs debate. No, actually I’m just kidding on that last one. But this was indeed a very fun conversation that I think you’ll enjoy!
You all know I travel to a ton of events each year, and event season is just getting underway for me. One of the events I’m most excited about is my very own AI Summit, the successor to the awesome Future of Data Summit event I produced last year. This year’s event takes place April 30th and May 1st, and is once again being held in Las Vegas, in conjunction with the Interop ITX conference.
This year’s event is much more AI focused, and is targeting enterprise line-of-business and IT managers and leaders who want to get smart on AI very quickly. Think of it as a two-day, no-fluff, Technical MBA in machine learning & AI. I’ll be presenting an ML & AI bootcamp, and I’ll have experts coming in to present mini workshops on computer vision, natural language processing and conversational applications, ML and AI for IoT and industrial applications, data management for AI, building an AI-first culture in your organization, and operationalizing ML and AI.
