What is most exciting for you in Data Science/AI?
Unexplored patterns which a human mind can’t even think of inferring from non-labelled data a most of the data in this world is non labelled

What do you think is the biggest challenge faced by Data Scientist today?
Biggest challenge faced is to find out what questions can be answered through inference.
Web has provided different sources/types of data. Key point is to determine what all questions can be answered using the available data.  Veracity(how trustable the data is) is another important challenge faced by data scientists today.

What do you think is the biggest obstacle for Data Science/AI adoption?
ROI(Return on investment). Big data and data science has created buzz in the industry over the last few years but not lot of companies apart from top four (Google,facebook,amazon,microsoft) have found their investments worth it.

You are traveling all the way from the UK to Bangalore to present at ODSC India. What got you interested to present at this conference?
I am a great believer of open data science /Open AI. I attended conference last year in London. Quite excited to see people talk openly about their achievements in their fields.
