    How Automation Can Create a Better Future of Work with Sagi Eliyahu, CEO & Founder of Tonkean

    How Automation Can Create a Better Future of Work with Sagi Eliyahu, CEO & Founder of Tonkean

    How Automation Can Create a Better Future of Work with Sagi Eliyahu, CEO & Founder of Tonkean

    *Episode Show Notes:*

    * Sagi Eliyahu is the Co-Founder and CEO at Tonkean. He has held executive engineering roles at Jive Software, and served for four years in the Israeli Defense Force’s elite intelligence agency -- worked as a developer since his early teens.
    * Tonkean’s focus is to empower operations professionals and give them an adaptive platform to complete business processes.
    * Over the last decade or so, fears about automation and its capacity for upending society have been front and center both in the news and in politics. When people think about automation today, they don’t think of technology that empowers or augments, but rather, technology that displaces — and exacerbates issues of inequality and economic opportunity in the process.
    * Automation has the potential to create real efficiencies without introducing more complexity, which is imperative towards optimizing your cross-functional processes. Automation, though likely to eliminate jobs that consist solely of menial tasks, is perhaps more properly seen as a means of augmenting the modern worker, rather than replacing them.
    * RPA is today's biggest revolution in automation for big companies, but it fails to account for many “exceptions to the rule” and leaves lots of manual work. That's why keeping humans in the loop throughout automation processes is so essential.
    * Tonkean’s work with nonprofits like Shopping Angels inspired the company to figure out how they could help more of them.

    How To Build A Career in Data Science with *Jacqueline Nolis* and *Emily Robinson*

    Episode Show Notes:

    * Jacqueline engages in industrial consulting such as T-Mobile, Expedia and Emily has background in R programming experience and having been at DataCamp, Etsy, Metis and now Warby Parker.
    * As all science fields converge into data science, is now the best time to build a career in data science? There is growth in AI and data science and with many conferences happening; this is the best scale up advice from Jr. to Sr. data scientists.
    * The book ‘ Build a Career in Data Science ( https://www.manning.com/books/build-a-career-in-data-science ) ’ explores topics including stakeholders, deploying models in production and community conferences such as Metis Data Science Bootcamp. More includes moving up the ladder and leaving the job gracefully.
    * COVID-19 has been a hot topic since 2020 and data science teams need to adjust to the new circumstances. Data science organizations must consider short term versus long term staffing decisions. The remote culture is picking up because of the pandemic and we should consider phases such as great recovery, slow recovery and communities going remote.
    * Prioritizing work and communicating effectively is critical when working with different stakeholders such as managers, product managers, C-Suite, data engineers and analysts. Most people think of data science as business work, but should be thought of as software engineering, sprints/scrums/kanbans.
    * Deploying a model in production is essential for handling failed products. But the big question becomes: Why do projects fail? And when it comes to deployment, is analytics easier to deploy. The last question is: How can we better manage the risk of failure?
