I was asked by Valérie Vuillerat to lecture at the Schweizerisches Institut für Betriebsökonomie (SIB) the module «Big Data & Analytics» for the first advanced training in Switzerland to optain the title «dipl.

The second interview: After the kick-off in SonntagsZeitung I received a request from the Swiss Trade Association (STA) for a SME-Portrait about REVOLYTICS AG. STA has chosen "digitalization" as its theme for the year 2016 and had therefore many exciting questions for me. I very much enjoyed the interview.

What a lucky launch: Just three months after the founding of REVOLYTICS AG an interview about us including a photo gets published in the business section of SonntagsZeitung. The article was written on the eve of this year's World Economic Forums (WEF), in which the implications of digitalization are in focus. Contrary to the recent Handelszeitung article by the WEF-Founder about the dangers of digitalization, this article describes new professions actually created by the increasing digitalization. Of course I was happy to give some insight into my job as a Data Scientist.

I came across Kaggle two years ago and thought this "crowd sourcing" idea is brilliant: Companies like Netflix, Google, Facebook are able to host competitions about their hardest predictive modeling problems. The data scientists on the other hand try to solve those complex problems best possible in a given time frame. Besides fame and glory, the winner gets prize money of multiple thousand dollars.
