Dataiku Honours Data Science Heroes
Oct 19, 2021
Dataiku, the platform for Everyday AI, has announced the launch of its latest online experience, History of Data Science. From the pioneers who led the way in the beginning ages of science and mathematics to modern innovators, historyofdatascience.com features the heroes of data science who have shaped the way we live and think today.
After collaborating across several teams with dozens of Dataikers globally over the past year, the new resource has launched to feature specific data science and AI innovations, as well as articles and new experiences, such as Beat the Linear Algorithm Regression game. Users can also download a free copy of “Innovators of Data Science: From Bayes to Bayesian Neural Networks.”
The new graphic novel tells the stories of 12 heroes who have transformed data science, including Thomas Bayes, Pierre-Simon Laplace, Carl Freidrich Gauss, Ada Lovelace, Ronald Fisher, Alan Turing, Claude Shannon, Geoffrey Hinton, Yann LeCun, Jürgen Schmidhuber, Yoshua Benigo, and Bernhard Schölkopf.
According to Dataiku co-founder and CEO, Florian Douetteau, the new hub is for everyone, from AI builders to AI consumers, and is reflective of the collaborative spirit that Dataiku promotes in its approach to inclusive, responsible AI:
“We’re dedicated to building and growing this project because we believe Everyday AI needs to be firmly rooted in shared data science culture. We believe culture is what brings people together and enables them to build great things and understanding and learning from the errors from the past will enable us to build 21st century inclusive, responsible AI.”
