Data science applications are increasing with new trends shaping 2020 including cognitive enterprise models and analytics. Every business is striving to become data driven and as data consumption increases, 2020 will be an exciting year for data science.

A Gartner poll found that 75% of enterprises will transition from pilot projects to operationalizing data scienceby 2025.

What does this mean?

Data science applications¹ will become part of our lives from consumer to enterprise adoption.

Learning and keeping up with trends will make the difference and this is why I launched the HumAIn Podcast to teach you what mattes in the industry and keep you updated in this era of digital transformation.

The HumAIn Podcast is one great resource you can use today to keep up with changes in the data science industry and become digitally literate.

Hosted by me (David Yakobovitch), the HumAIn Podcast is focused on artificial intelligence, data science, developer education and future of work. Frequent topics include responsible AI, machine learning, open source systems, work 2.0, B2B and enterprise SaaS products, and emerging technology trends.

My Personal Story and Data Science Journey

Data science for me began back in school tutoring math in the 6th grade, participating in National Math Competitions, and learning applied statistics in college.

After graduation, I consulted for Fortune 500 companies² where I made one observation: Most companies do not understand technology.

In this era of transformative technologies including artificial intelligence, #machinelearning, and #naturallanguageprocessing, companies lack ideas for adoption and using them to scale operations.

Online content is growing fast and in 2020 alone, misinformation and fake news have become the norm.

The technology industry faces a similar fate as people look for credible and reliable information. With the high volumes of data and information, accessing quality content becomes a problem.

Combined with my experience of teaching students #datascience, I decided to launch the HumAIn Podcast in February 2019 to help students and employees to get hired and to stay relevant at work.

From Chief Data Scientists and AI Advisors to Leaders who advance AI for All, the HumAIn Podcast is the channel to release new AI products, to learn about industry trends, and to bridge the gap between Humans and Machines in the Fourth Industrial Revolution³.
