What exactly makes data science the greatest science?

We're excited to announce that John Elder, Founder & Chair, Elder Research is confirmed to deliver a keynote address at the Predictive Analytics World Mega-Event, taking place in Las Vegas on June 3-7, 2018. This will be a joint, super-plenary keynote accessible to attendees of all five (5) Mega-PAW conferences: PAW Business, PAW Financial, PAW Healthcare, PAW Manufacturing, and Deep Learning World.


Description of Dr. Elder's Keynote:

The Greatest Science

Data science, if judged as a separate science, exceeds its sisters in truth, breadth, and unity. DS finds truth better than any other science; the crisis in replicability of results in the sciences today is largely due to bad data analysis, performed by amateurs. As for breadth, a data scientist can contribute mightily to a new field with only minor cooperation from a domain expert, whereas the reverse is not so easy. And for utility, data science can fit empirical behavior to provide useful model where good theory doesn't yet exist. That is, it can predict "what" is likely even when "why" is beyond reach. 

But only if we do it right! The most vital data scientist skill is recognizing analytic hazards. With that, we become indispensable.
