Held at the Haas School of Business, University of California, Berkeley, the Data Science & Strategy Lecture Series examines the evolving role of “big data” and analytics in managerial decision-making. In this playlist, lecture series host Prof. Greg La Blanc interviews industry executives and practitioners on key topics in data science, including data mining, machine learning, visualization, and more.
Recently I had a chance to catch up with a friend and friend of the show, Josh Bloom, vice president of data & analytics at GE Digital. If you’ve been listening for a while, you already know that Josh was on the show around this time last year, just prior to the acquisition of his company Wise.io by GE Digital. It was great to catch up with Josh on his journey within GE, and the work his team is doing around Industrial AI, now that they’re part of the one of the world’s biggest industrial companies. We talk about some really interesting things in this show, including how his team is using autoencoders to create training datasets, and how they incorporate knowledge of physics and physical systems into their machine learning models.
AI, machine learning, natural language processing, and other advanced analytics technologies make up the leading-edge of how organizations are gaining value from big data. Here’s a collection of some of the most influential and rising stars on Twitter when it comes to AI and machine learning.
My guest this episode is Joshua Bloom, professor of Astronomy at the University of California, Berkeley and co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of machine learning startup Wise.io.
