Music for Data Scientists? Music by Data Scientists? …What…?!

By Foster Provost, NYU Mean Reversions first album released today (Oct 17, 2018).Mean Reversion is the collaboration of data scientist songwriters Foster Provost (thats me) and Cliff Hurvich, along with (three time Emmy-winning) producer Kevin Bents..Sound like a perfect combination for a potentially high-impact contribution?Gregory asked me to write something about Mean Reversion for the KDnuggets blog, and I agreed pretty quickly, thanks to my rather shameless desire to convince you to check out the music and see whether you might like to hear more..Or maybe become our biggest fan–we are recruiting!  But as you know, its a very difficult market for attracting data scientists…Attracting data scientists to Mean Reversion faces a classification problem..As I told Gregory early on: in some places the work is definitely above average.Bio: Foster Provost studies data science and its alignment with business problems..His research has won numerous awards, including the Best Paper published in the journal Information Systems Research in 2015, Best Paper Awards at the top data science research conference, ACM SIGKDD, across three decades, the 2009 INFORMS Design Science Award for his work on Social Network-based Marketing Systems, IBM Faculty Awards for outstanding research in data mining and machine learning, a Presidents Award from whats now Verizon, and more.Related: var disqus_shortname = kdnuggets; (function() { var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true; dsq.src =; (document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq); })();.
