Analytics And Data Science Pulse - #018. Q&A with JT Kostman, PhD
In this, episode 18 of the Analytics and Data Science Pulse Podcast, I was privileged to have the opportunity to speak with the one and only JT Kostman, PhD. I have been connected with JT for some time on LinkedIn, and I cannot thank him enough for his generosity in taking the time to speak with me and in turn, sharing that discussion with you. As you will hear in this episode, JT has the unique profile of someone with a background in Psychology, Mathematics, and Data Science. He has hunted terrorists for the U.S. intelligence agencies, tracked criminal networks for the FBI, advised the Department of Defense on analytic strategies and led social media analysis for the 2012 Obama campaign. In the corporate sector, he served as Chief Data Officer and member of the Executive Committee for Time Inc. and as Chief Data Scientist for Samsung.
I cannot overstate how interesting I found this chat, and I hope you, the listeners, get as much enjoyment out of listening to it as much I did making it!

In this week's episode, I was joined by former Chief Data Officer and Partner of Text Analytics company Gavagai and now of RISE (Research Institutes of Sweden), Fredrik Olsson.
Fredrik is someone who has an impressive background within the sphere of Language Technology (PhD in Computational Linguistics), and he offers a unique insight as to what life is like when you move from the commercial sector back into research (where he is now). I think that Fredrik is an excellent example of someone who is comfortable with being uncomfortable and is always open to stepping outside of his comfort zone.
