The Data Science Renaissance

Listen, in 2008 we saw the success of Nate Silver’s algorithm showing that elections were predictable. This was a watershed moment. In the years since, we’ve poured money and research into data science hoping to do better. Yet, in 2016 that same algorithm — with more money and research behind it — was way off and so were its copycats. How was it with more time, money and research our technology has gotten worse? What you call a Renaissance, I call a bubble.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
