Introducing Scott Burk

Gilbert Eijkelenboom

My name is COVID. I'm driven by curiosity, and my aim is to spread insights that you can apply your life starting today. So, let's do it. Let's start mind speaking. Today in a man speaking podcast, I'm talking to Scott Burke. Scott has a PhD in statistics. He's also a professor of data science at CUNY is 30 years of experience and has authored four books about data science and AI I'm asking him, what are the common pitfalls when companies try to adopt AI Data Science and Analytics, and how to make AI programs successful? He's also talking about presenting to non technical people. And I'm asking him because he has four children and even a few grandchildren, how they look at him. How do you see him as a dad that knows so much about technology? So without further ado, let's dive in conversation with Hi Scott, excited to meet you and exciting to talk to you today.
