“A truly equal world would be one where women ran half our countries and companies and men ran half our homes” (Sandberg, 2013).
Black Swan Data Science Consultant Rose Barnett has recently had this article on Machine Learning published by digital business, marketing and ecommerce experts Econsultancy.
Business Development network BDLN interviewed Steve and Hugo from Black Swan for their website – from pub chat to Disney and everything else in between.
By 2018, over half of large organisations globally will compete using advanced analytics and proprietary algorithms, causing the disruption of entire industries (Gartner, 2016).

I recently wrote a python script to capture posts and their comments from Facebook and report on the volume, sentiment and topics of discussion. As you’ll quickly realise, my coding skills are self taught through online education platforms such as Codecademy and my ability to write fully functioning tools is still fairly new.
Our story began on an average early spring workday, when we were asked by Keve if we want to participate in the Microsoft IOT Hackathon, and since we already have a great interest in the field, and our hobbies are all related to it, we sat down to figure out an innovative idea around environment protection.
