    IBM's Data Science and AI Elite team is 2 years in the making and already helped over 100 clients win with AI. The group's nearly 100 international members, which include coding and open source experts, machine learning data scientists, and practitioners of decision optimization, use a 3-part approach to get clients started on their AI journey: building the right set of skills, creating a process, and using an open tooling approach, which includes Watson Studio running a host of predictive analytics. The team's clients include Experian, Geisinger, Niagara Bottling, Red Electrica de Espana, and many more, to move AI concepts from PowerPoint decks to reality.

    Learn more about the Data Science and AI Elite team in this blog by the team's Program Director and Data Science and AI Elite community member, @Carlo Appugliese, in his article "Building a Rock Star Data Science team: My first year with the IBM Data Science Elite team."

    Through July 22nd, Data Science and AI Elite team members @Carmen-Gabriela Stefanita, @Sepideh Seifzadeh and @Andre Violante will also be hosting a Coursera Q&A on "Become a Data Scientist: The Journey through Data Science and AI."

    So glad to be a part of this team!​ My background in statistics and computer science has made me passionate about understanding the theory underlying all of the tools we work with day to day. Although many data science tools abstract away verbosity/technical details, having a grasp on how algorithms and code function can inform your approach to how you solve problem. If you're curious or passionate about how some aspect of data and computer science really work, I'd love to teach, learn, or figure it out with you.
