Now up: Zachary Brown, Lead Data Scientist at S&P Global on #DataScience and #OpenEducation for the enterprise. Dayjob: #AI, Sidehustle: building #digital skills using #opensource #ODSCWest @School_GC
#DigitalLiteracy - Why? Effective work today requires a lot of associated learning. @linuxfoundation @github #VersionControl #Visualization -- continuous learning is critical. Optimal tools & processes are probably not the ones you are using now (Matlab vs. Scikit-Learn)
Need an evolving understanding for what tools are available today to get your work done. If you want your business people to work with your #datascience team, they need to understand what data is and what it can do. Also helps to avoid chasing buzzwords and bling.
Lol. and why you can't implement your deep learning framework in .NET :)
(Next tweet should be a poll on how many times this was suggested in #GCdigital)
Who needs literacy? Everyone. Key component of workplace strategy at @SPGlobal - bridge across work in organization. Multiple channels - e-learning modules, #datascience community, exchange ideas. Intro's in datascience == what do you need to know to work with the team?
Corporate Literacy Strategy:
- Technology roll-out
- Broad training
- Everyone is an expert!
What really happens?
- The people who learn are the ones who use the technology and tools
- People around the core tools and tech need to understand what it means for the business and them
- Expand #opensource tech (#Python) in current roles.
- Show them how they can use to transform their work and business
- Grow these skills across the enterprise
- (Helps the business to work with data and build value)

Want a data-driven organization? Design it.
- Core #Datascience team
- #DataLiteracy across enterprise
- #Tech folks with business acumen
(and I'd build in #design #inclusivedesign #diversity too)

#ODSCWest #DigitalAcademy
How to get there? Top-down & Bottom-up
- Explain relevance & importance of skills
- Provide guidance to learning
- Provide practical ways to use skills
(+ #Community #Evangelism)

Learning Resources - Hybrid model
- #OpenSource content (Udacity) #Python
- Instructor-led sessions (weekly) - review of coding, showed use in @ProjectJupyter - how learning is actually in use
- Platform in cloud - online framework to execute (Minimal startup overhead)
Results at @SPGlobal
- 130 participants, 10 week session, great retention
- Full support of #Datascience teams
- Online community & forums for async communications

- Course management (just did it)
Future steps:
- Learning path (foundations: #Python, #Cloud, #DeepLearning )
- Do it again!
