Harvard Business Review on "Why You Aren't Getting Value from Your Data Science"

On December 7th, Harvard Business Review published an article called "Why You're Not Getting Value from Your Data Science." The author, Kalyan Veeramachaneni, is a Principle Research Scientist at MIT CSAIL and a co-founder of PatternEx. 

In the article, Kalyan seeks to answer the question "What would it take for businesses to realize the full potential of their data repositories with machine learning?" The answer is partially in how the question is framed, but lies moreso in the focus of data scientists in general.

The Revolution of Learning Systems

Like living things, technologies evolve to better suit the needs of their environment—in this case, the security intelligence space. Others have made this point but there is an evolution from rules based approaches to analytic approaches (e.g. SIEM to UEBA).

Technology solutions require the work of experts like product managers, engineers and data scientists to evolve. What they don’t do is improve automatically from the user feedback. The real trick in Security Intelligence is to get the supervised learning models to update automatically, without the need for a data scientist. Pull this off, and you have built a system that evolves on its own—a system that learns
