I’m a Director of Data Science at C.H. Robinson facilitating our AI/ML digital transformation. My primary accountability is CHR’s enterprise platform, a group of teams providing cloud compute, CI/CD, UI and MLOps “X-as-a-Service” capabilities to increase data science team velocity & efficiency.

What advice do you have for students considering USD’s Applied Artificial Intelligence online degree program?

The teaching & communication methods used by USD are standard procedure for many of today’s largest tech companies and their data science organizations. Understanding how to engage with technical peers via digital channels is, in my mind, part of becoming a data scientist in the twenty-first century.
