Kirill Makharinsky: Data Literacy - Not Optional Anymore
In this episode, we explore an area of data analytics that everyone knows they need to improve but no one knows how to do it. That is data literacy. Data literacy ensures that business people have the skills to accurately interpret data represented in charts, tables, and dashboards, as well as the knowledge to use those tools to gather and analyze data on their own.
To guide us through the nuances of data literacy and explain how to implement it in an organization, we invited a data literacy expert to share the secrets of his trade. Kirill Makharinsky is the founder of Enki, a San Francisco-based company that provides data-as-a-second language training services. Kirill is a serial entrepreneur, having previously co-founded ETG, one the largest online B2B travel companies in Europe, and Quid, a leading research and analysis tool.

Simon Crosby: Continuous Intelligence with Machine Learning, Digital Twin and Knowledge Graphs
Continuous Intelligence (CI) integrates historical and real-time analytics to automatically monitor and update various types of systems, including supply chains, telecommunications networks and e-commerce sites. CI encompasses data ingestion, transformation and analytics, as well as operational “triggers” that recommend or initiate specific real-time actions.
CI casts a wider net than traditional analytics because it includes contextual data, for example related to market behavior, weather patterns or social media trends, that help enterprises operate the core systems more intelligently.
In this episode, our VP of Research Kevin Petrie interviews Simon Crosby, CTO at Swim.ai, a continuous intelligence software vendor that focuses on edge-based learning for fast-data. He co-founded security vendor Bromium in 2010, later sold to HP Inc in 2019.
