Data Science and Machine Learning
for Executives, Business Owners, and Entrepreneurs.


Business leaders must continuously navigate the shifting landscape and deploy technology to achieve the greatest measure of success in their endeavors.  Data Science presents new avenues of opportunity, and many businesses are quickly adopting data science methodologies to advance their goals.

This lecture is designed for the executive, business owner, and entrepreneur with minimal experience in data science and machine learning.  The objective is to prepare non-technical stakeholders to be effective partners with data scientists and other technical staff on data science related projects.  Additionally, this presentation is intended to help stakeholders determine if data science is the appropriate direction for their project, as well as help set realistic expectations for such projects.

Topics include:

  • Data science and machine learning basics (commonly used terms, definitions, and related concepts)
  • How is machine learning different from traditional programming?
  • Common examples of data science in everyday life
  • What are some of the strengths and weaknesses of data science approaches?
  • When is a machine learning approach appropriate? When is it not?
  • What are the prerequisites and corequisites for using data science?
  • What are the roles of each team member in a data science initiative?
  • What steps should be taken before launching a data science initiative?
  • An overview of data science timelines, personnel required, and related concerns

The lecture will be followed by questions and answers.
