Sr. Data Scientist Jonathan Balaban's Piece on Turi Create in Towards Data Science
By Emily Wilson • April 08, 2018
Metis Sr. Data Scientist Jonathan Balaban recently wrote 3 Questions Business Leaders Should Be Asking About Apple's New Machine Learning Kit, published in Towards Data Science. In the piece, he talks about Turi Create, which is Apple's open source package that makes it easier for developers to put the power of machine learning into their apps. Apple has claimed Turi Create allows users to “focus on tasks instead of algorithms.” And as Jonathan notes, "that’s music to the ears of business leaders with limited time and resources!"
He goes on to explain that Turi Create "could become a game-changer for your business — even if your business is still getting up to speed on the latest in AI." But how?
To guide you, his post provides (1) the basics of Turi Create, (2) how Apple is using the platform, and (3) how you might creatively apply it to your work.
When our Sr. Data Scientists aren't teaching the intensive, 12-week bootcamps or corporate training courses, they're working on a variety of other projects. This monthly blog series tracks and discusses some of their recent activities and accomplishments.
Data scientists are often described as hybrids: part statistician, part computer scientist; part analyst, part strategist. But while we focus on the myriad technical skills that a data scientist should possess, we often overlook one of the foundational skills (without which the whole edifice falls apart): communication skills. In this post, read three tips for improving your professional communication skills.
