Kana Cornett, Data Science Manager
What I do: I lead an incredible team that listens to “the stories told by data” to understand challenges in different industries and propose the best, most innovative solutions based on AI and machine learning, focusing on areas such as customer hyper-personalization, virtual agents and video analytics.
An exciting project: One of our latest projects was the development of an AI-based smart system that automated ventilation control for a transportation system in Madrid, with a goal of minimizing energy consumption and optimizing passenger comfort.
Advice: Have a love of learning and listening. Be ready to write incredible stories with your team—and see why now is a great time to pursue a career in data science.
Sakib Moghal, Visual Analytics Developer
What I do: I take data and turn it into beautiful, insightful visualizations that help companies make more informed, data-driven business decisions.
An exciting project: We’re building a brand-new visual analytics solution that will give the client unprecedented insight into their financial data—what they spend, what they make—to the tune of billions of dollars. Data is truly transforming their business, and it’s exciting to be a part of it.
Advice: Find something you’re passionate about that will make you excited to wake up and come to work in the morning. If you do what you love, you’ll do it brilliantly and with a smile on your face, which is good for you and for business.
Edward Tsang, Functional and Industry Analytics Analyst
What I do: I use my coding and analytical skills—including advanced analytics and AI—to guide clients through their fraud and risk issues.
An exciting project: I really enjoyed my first client project with Accenture, a data visualization project for a large, international retail company. The most innovative part of the project was developing proof of concept dashboards, which allowed the client to see what’s possible in the New.
Advice: The best piece of advice I have ever received is to keep asking questions, because as annoying as you think asking might be, people will be more annoyed when you make a mistake due to assumptions.
