Data Driven Innovation


This session will outline how to identify unknown growth opportunities with structured data enrichment and applied machine learning. We explore the elements that make up an efficient and transparent algorithm, the importance of data as input and how to deal with the underlying uncertainty found in the sources and conclusions drawn. Finally, we will explore the concept of unknown unknowns, draw parallels to agile methodologies and how this flexibility is by data and implemented into strategic decision processes. Finally, a prediction about the role of ethics in data processing & innovation is shared with the audience.
