Thanks for reading Peter. How is the title click baity if that is my core opinion and the post is spent discussing it? And is it stupid because you strongly disagree with my view? If you think data science can be collectively summarised by just algorithms like random forest, kmeans and regression than you have reinforced my thinking on the subject further. Some of the most intelligent and best critical thinkers I’ve worked with are business people and they’ve had no problems understanding these algorithms. I would like to discuss and rebut a lot of things you’ve said but there’s too much content here to address.
