Learning Objectives

In a data role, one of our main objectives is to build efficient models and ensure that the recommendations from modeling efforts are as accurate or interpretable as possible. In my talk, I’ll introduce a framework that every leader/data contributor can follow and discuss a modeling approach and critical junctions in the modeling process to ensure models are less biased and performant. I’ll talk about what has made me and my data teams most effective based on all of my experience as an analyst, decision scientist and data leader. It all comes down to adding the human element.
