A little over a month ago I left my role as the Chief Data Scientists for Big Data & Analytics Platform Team at Oracle. It was sad to say goodbye to some wonderfully talented people that I had the pleasure of working with, but change is an inevitable part of our lives. After enjoying a month off at my warmer and sunnier home in Sydney spent with family and friends, I feel energized about what is next.
I am humbled and excited about my new role as the Practice Director – Data Science & Analytics, Americas at Think Big Analytics. There are exciting developments in the world of artificial intelligence that makes it more important than ever for data scientists to understand the customer’s needs, reflect upon the wider context beyond those needs, and develop solutions that have a meaningful impact for the customer. I am looking forward to getting to know a talented team who is focused on the evolving needs of our customers and delivering impactful data science consulting services.
