    #217 Data & AI at Tesco with Venkat Raghavan, Director of Analytics and Science at Tesco

    #217 Data & AI at Tesco with Venkat Raghavan, Director of Analytics and Science at Tesco

    Loyalty schemes are a hallmark of established retailers—not only do they build consumer trust, they are intelligent and constantly evolving, and Tesco’s Clubcard is the UK’s favorite retail loyalty program. The effects of these discounts are far-reaching, especially for families who rely on getting the best deals to make the most of their money. As Tesco’s tagline goes, every little helps. In turn, the identification and specific details of discounted products can have a profound impact on how consumers view the largest supermarket retailer in the United Kingdom, as well as the operational costs and profits that shareholders are concerned with. How do data and AI inform these offers, what goes into the enterprise-scale analytics that keeps Tesco’s Clubcard the UK’s favorite?
    Venkat Raghavan is Director of Analytics and Science at Tesco. Venkat’s area of expertise is customer analytics, having been very heavily involved with the Tesco Clubcard loyalty program. Venkat also set up an analytics center of excellence to help break down data silos between teams. Previously, he was a Director of Analytics at Boston Consulting Group and Senior Director for Advanced Analytics & AI for Manthan and a Cross Industry Delivery Leader at Mu Sigma.
    In the episode, Richie and Venkat explore Tesco’s use of data, the introduction of the clubcard scheme, Tesco’s data-driven innovations in online food retail, understanding customer behavior through loyalty programs and in-app interactions, improving customer experience at Tesco, operating a cohesive data intelligence platform that leverages multiple data sources, communication between data and business teams, pricing and cost management, the challenges of data science at scale, the future of data and much more.

AI. Perplexity doesn't need an introduction. It is an AI powered search engine that lets you get the information you need as fast as possible.
    Denis Yarats is the Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Perplexity AI. He previously worked at Facebook as an AI Research Scientist. Denis Yarats attended New York University. His previous research interests broadly involved Reinforcement Learning, Deep Learning, NLP, robotics and investigating ways of semi-supervising Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning using natural language.
    In the episode, Adel and Denis explore Denis’ role at Perplexity.ai, key differentiators of Perplexity.ai when compared to other chatbot-powered tools, culture at perplexity, competition in the AI space, building genAI products, the future of AI and search, open-source vs closed-source AI and much more.

    #214 Learning & Memory, For Brains & AI, with Kim Stachenfeld, Senior Research Scientist at Google DeepMind

    Memory, the foundation of human intelligence, is still one of the most complex and mysterious aspects of the brain. Despite decades of research, we've only scratched the surface of understanding how our memories are formed, stored, and retrieved. But what if AI could help us crack the code on memory? How might AI be the key to unlocking problems that have evaded human cognition for so long?
    Kim Stachenfeld is a Senior Research Scientist at Google DeepMind in NYC and Affiliate Faculty at the Center for Theoretical Neuroscience at Columbia University.  Her research covers topics in Neuroscience and AI. On the Neuroscience side, she study how animals build and use models of their world that support memory and prediction. On the Machine Learning side, she works on implementing these cognitive functions in deep learning models. Kim’s work has been featured in The Atlantic, Quanta Magazine, Nautilus, and MIT Technology Review. In 2019, she was named one of MIT Tech Review’s Innovators under 35 for her work on predictive representations in hippocampus. 
    In the episode, Richie and Kim explore her work on Google Gemini, the importance of customizability in AI models, the need for flexibility and adaptability in AI models, retrieval databases and how they improve AI response accuracy, AI-driven science, the importance of augmenting human capabilities with AI and the challenges associated with this goal, the intersection of AI, neuroscience and memory and much more.

    #213 Building Trust Through Data with Prukalpa Sankar, Co-Founder of Atlan

    #213 Building Trust Through Data with Prukalpa Sankar, Co-Founder of Atlan

    In the fast-paced work environments we are used to, the ability to quickly find and understand data is essential. Data professionals can often spend more time searching for data than analyzing it, which can hinder business progress. Innovations like data catalogs and automated lineage systems are transforming data management, making it easier to ensure data quality, trust, and compliance. By creating a strong metadata foundation and integrating these tools into existing workflows, organizations can enhance decision-making and operational efficiency. But how did this all come to be, who is driving better access and collaboration through data?
    Prukalpa Sankar is the Co-founder of Atlan. Atlan is a modern data collaboration workspace (like GitHub for engineering or Figma for design). By acting as a virtual hub for data assets ranging from tables and dashboards to models & code, Atlan enables teams to create a single source of truth for all their data assets, and collaborate across the modern data stack through deep integrations with tools like Slack, BI tools, data science tools and more. A pioneer in the space, Atlan was recognized by Gartner as a Cool Vendor in DataOps, as one of the top 3 companies globally. Prukalpa previously co-founded SocialCops, world leading data for good company (New York Times Global Visionary, World Economic Forum Tech Pioneer). SocialCops is behind landmark data projects including India’s National Data Platform and SDGs global monitoring in collaboration with the United Nations. She was awarded Economic Times Emerging Entrepreneur for the Year, Forbes 30u30, Fortune 40u40, Top 10 CNBC Young Business Women 2016, and a TED Speaker.
    In the episode, Richie and Prukalpa explore challenges within data discoverability, the inception of Atlan, the importance of a data catalog, personalization in data catalogs, data lineage, building data lineage, implementing data governance, human collaboration in data governance, skills for effective data governance, product design for diverse audiences, regulatory compliance, the future of data management and much more.

    #212 The History of Data and AI, and Where It's Headed with Cristina Alaimo, Assistant Professor at Luiss Guido Carli University

    #212 The History of Data and AI, and Where It's Headed with Cristina Alaimo, Assistant Professor at Luiss Guido Carli University

    One thing we like to do on DataFramed is cover the current state of data & AI, and how it will change in the future. But sometimes to really understand the present and the future, we need to look into the past. We need to understand just exactly how data became so foundational to modern society and organizations, how previous paradigm shifts can help inform us about future ones, and how data & AI became powerful social forces within our lives.
    Cristina Alaimo is Assistant Professor (Research) of Digital Economy and Society at LUISS University, Rome. She co-wrote the book Data Rules, Reinventing the Market Economy with Jannis Kallinikos, Professor of Organization Studies and the CISCO Chair in Digital Transformation and Data Driven Innovation at LUISS University. The book offers a fascinating examination of the history and sociology of data. 
    In the episode, Adel and Cristina explore the many of the themes covered in the book, from the first instance of where data was used, to how it became central for how organizations operate, to how usage of data introduced paradigm shifts in organizational structure, and much more.

Tune in if you want to be a Data Scientist

I’d say I’ve listened to many other podcasts around the topic of data science, big data and machine learning but none of them intrigued me due to either be very deep on fundamentals or dealing with the matter only in a superficial way.

In my opinion the unique feature of DataFramed is the main talk of the show with real experts in this field which have years of experience in technology giants and dealing with real world cases in big data. That’s absolutely useful to learners in Data Science since broadens their understanding simply by listening to challenges and opportunities in this career.

Also, show comprises of many other learning materials such as coding and general questions which are well explained and practical.
