Highlights from Past Tweet Chats:

Without data, decisions are opinions rather than facts. As engineers, we want to make decisions based on fact. [Retweet]


Instincts aren’t scalable, data science is. [Retweet]


You need to be careful when using data. Garbage in, garbage out. Big data sets always have some problems or bias in them. [Retweet]

Statistics and machine learning will give you the mathematically correct answer, but that will not be useful if you did not set up your problem correctly. [Retweet]

Data analysis is in its infancy. There is a huge amount that can be done in terms of analysis methodology, sensor software and the measurements we can do vs. what we will be able to do. [Retweet]

Data science and machine learning are very active research areas – and advances in technology are allowing the collection of ever larger data sets. [Retweet]
