Department of Management Sciences Seminar: Trust & AutomationExport this event to calendar

Wednesday, November 15, 2017 — 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM EST

Andrew Brown
Data Scientist, New Hippo Health
Vancouver, BC

Developing trust with my clients and co-workers has been central to my career success since completing my MASc degree. I claim that automating my analytics contributed a surprising amount to developing trust in my work by making it repeatable, audit-able and alterable. In this talk, I’ll speak about those three features of automated analytics and their link to trust in the context of project examples, both successes and failures.
