April Sabbatical Report: My Year as a Data Scientist

This is a continuation of the series of my sabbatical reports. Here are the previous entries.

The skills needed to be a data scientist.

I am finishing up my second project. It is mainly on regression (two models), however, I also used a classification model for each of the two regression models to identify outliers (which can be very naturally defined in my case). This allowed for drastically better regression models—my models basically went from garbage to good.

How academia and business are different. No report.

How will this experience influence my teaching? No report.

My feelings about being in industry.  I am feeling the same way I did last month: I am really looking forward to being a professor again (especially having a summer vacation), but I am going to miss this job. I have good coworkers, and I am finding the work interesting.
