Great read!

On the topic of domain expertise vs machine learning expertise there was a lively debate at Strata. Here's Michael Driscoll's post.

I like Drew Conway's data scientist skills Venn diagram. One take away is that if you're solid with hacking skills and domain expertise you're on your way, but go shore up your skills in math and stats.

    Chuck now works for Oracle, and is now deeply embroiled in IT infrastructure.

    Previously, he was with VMware for 2 years, and EMC for 18 years before that, most of them great.

    He enjoys speaking to customer and industry audiences about a variety of technology topics, and -- of course -- enjoys blogging.

    Chuck lives in Vero Beach, FL with his wife and four dogs when he's not traveling. In his spare time, Chuck is working on his second career as an aging rock musician.

    Warning: do not ever buy him a drink when there is a piano nearby.
