Q5: How will #opensource and #openstandards help organizations accelerate innovation this year?

Dr. Angel Luis Diaz You can not out innovate the world - centers of gravity around open technology accelerates innovation - reduces the concept count of what developers & data practitioners need to know to get their job done - the results is move value faster!

Bob E. Hayes Relying on #opensource applications helps us be more agile in our product development. We contribute to #opensource and believe #openstandards is a mutually beneficial proposition...

Bob E. Hayes ...we benefit from the knowledge of others and ourselves contribute to help move initiatives forward with the promise of better data and better understanding of the material positive impact of being data-driven.

Dez Blanchfield The exciting thing that #OpenSource in particular has done is provide a consistent behavioural approch to working across broad ranges of teams with a common idea or goal.

jameskobielus "Open source" isn't just software. It refers to the imperative and communities making all resources open, accessible, & shareable: code, data, models, expertise, services, etc. That spawns standards and accelerates innovation.

Dez Blanchfield When folk dabble in and then eventually adopt #OpenSource they quickly "get it" and find that they behave differently ( better ) towards being more #open around topics like #Data and #Analytics.

Dez Blanchfield The other big thing I've seen in the last 25 years frankly is that the new generation of staff each few years come through with University ideals and bring #OpenSource culture with them which helps organisations #Transition more quickly.

Nancy Hensley @dez_blanchfield interesting comment on the universities - it really does open up access to learn doesn't it ?

jameskobielus If you consider, say, open data-science communities such as Kaggle and TopCoder an example of "open-source expertise," it's clear that the freshest builder talent is leveraging these channels. That's a key to sustainable innovation.

Dez Blanchfield Curiously another fun thing I've seen take place is that #OpenStandards and #OpenSource taught folk that it was OK to #Share, give code away to gain a wider developer community help share the code cutting workloads and collaborate on developmen
3 Votes Vote
Dez Blanchfield #OpenSource also taught folk that not only was it OK to #share but that #share other #stuff, i.e. not just share code to and from OpenSource, but Ideas, Data, Designs, and that's been a quantum leap forward for staid old enterprise communities

jameskobielus Now that we have a US administration that's hostile to openness, I hope the open-source communities can push against that grain. Let's hope that Trump doesn't stop all over the "open source" goose that's laying golden eggs.

Tripp Braden @dez_blanchfield Great points Dez, leveraging how other people feel about open source can provide initial momentum with future orgaizational leaders. Let new leaders help impact their teams

Dez Blanchfield We've had #OpenStandards for 6x decades and for the most part folk have adhered to them, look at TCP/IP, Unix, look at ISO & IEEE et al.. but what we haven't been good at is applying that to our own in-house practices, that's changing though.

Grant_Case My concern for Open Source is usability. Open Source creates robust software, infinitely configurable and tuned high-end needs. But what about the other 95% of the business? We can't get people to learn SQL, but we're relying on everyone to learn R?

Let’s get started! Q1: Where do you anticipate #datascience will have the biggest impact in 2017?

Bob E. Hayes #Datascience's biggest impact will be around the application of #machinelearning to uncover insights - identify drivers of customer loyalty, mitigate security risks, creating segments.

Bob E. Hayes #machinelearning picks up where humans leave off to surface the usable pearls in oceans of data.

jameskobielus I predict that data science will have its biggest impact in 2017 in conversational cognitive chatbots. They're everywhere, engaging people to help them with mobility, devices, online services, e-commerce, etc.

Aviv Canaani don't know about the "biggest" impact put the most important impact would probably be in #healthcare

Dr. Angel Luis Diaz @bobehayes #machinelearning to uncover insights is a big deal - combining that with the basics of data cleansing are important.

Bob E. Hayes In addition to impacting businesses, #datascience could improve our understanding of the world at large. We seem to need that today!

Dr. Angel Luis Diaz @jameskobielus ELIZA for the masses!

Dion Hinchcliffe Biggest impact that #datascience will have in 2017 is in areas where data is visible and accessible. Dark data will remain a challenge for many orgs in 2017, but for those that can surface the data, there are big opportunities as tools mature.

jameskobielus Data science's impact in 2017 and beyond is coming smack-dab to the heart of app development everywhere. Machine learning, deep neural nets, and predictive analytics are core IP in most disruptive apps now.

Bob E. Hayes I'd like to see #datascientists demystify #machinelearning or #analytics by educating their colleagues on basic statistics - this would go a long way in building a strong data culture, leading to a true #datadriven company.

Dion Hinchcliffe In short, the #datascience opportunities will be in marketing, sales, operations, and supply chain, though other areas as well, like #custserv and product development. #datascience

jameskobielus Data science's impact is becoming pervasive in the business, consumer, education, creative, and other sectors. Autonomous vehicles--which are powered by data science--are capturing headlines everywhere.

Dion Hinchcliffe Good point @jameskobielus, another major area of impact will be #datascience capabilities being baked into just about every app in 2017.

Dez Blanchfield What I'm seeing now is that #DataScience is no longer a seperate conversation, it's now officially part of the daily discussion, it's a native of the enterprise and not the weird cousin ;-)

Nancy Hensley if we can continue to build the culture around the value of #datascience in 2017 it should become much more pervasive in all industries

Nancy Hensley It's a cultural shift and a shift to making #datascience more accessible. If we do that, the impact is much larger

jameskobielus @dez_blanchfield You're right, Dez. Data science is coming into the mainstream of popular consciousness. I feel less and less like a marginal geek when I bring it up in polite company.

Dez Blanchfield The other major shift I've seen is that 2017 felt like the whole topic of #Data and #MakeDataSimple is a topic that CxO's and Managers are allowed to talk openly about.

Dion Hinchcliffe Yes @jameskobielus, very much so. I believe a mature view of #datascience includes the perspective on how best to unleash the full ocean of data most organizations have submerged. Or what's the point? ;-) And yes, search is key.

Dion Hinchcliffe @nancykoppdw Yes, the cultural shift has to be to a more data-centric view of our organizations, and that includes being amenable to open data sharing across silos. I predict that will be one of the big shifts starting in 2017. #datascience

Dez Blanchfield But if I was to crystal ball what I see as being the BIGGEST impact, it's got to be the fact that Enterprise and Fed Govt have realised they can now use #Cloud for #DataScience like @IBM #DSX and not try to do it all on-prem..
