MEETING DATA SCIENCE CHALLENGES UPFRONT
"Data Science is both an art and science. It needs deep domain understanding along with a strong technical capability to solve the most complex problems," shared Sudheesh
While every Data Science problem throws up a unique challenge, some of the common challenges are with regards to the availability of the right datasets for data science modelling. Knowledge Lens has acknowledged the challenge faced by their clientele most of the times where the customer wants to solve a complex problem using Data Science but there is very little historical data capture that has been done on the problem.
Another area where Knowledge Lens saves the day is when the challenge is for the business teams to trust and adopt a data science output to be implemented in the business process. The governance of the model accuracy and model management continues to haunt the business teams.
