Data Skeptic Unusual Angles Data Skeptic takes a different take on how we review data—thanks to some healthy skepticism, listeners come out with unusual information and knowledge.
A few months ago, Airbnb ran a great post about how its trust and safety data scientists build machine learning models to protect users from fraud by predicting bad actors. As the piece illustrated using Game of Thrones, a highly nuanced model is required to determine something like whether someone
“I don’t think that you should approach big data as a solution in search of a problem”- Interview with Skimlinks Maria Mestre
I completed a PhD in signal processing at Cambridge developing models of user behaviour using brain data. After the PhD I joined Skimlinks as a data scientist, where I model online user behaviour and work on much larger datasets. My main role is implementing large-scale machine learning models processing terabytes
