Today’s guest is Aakash Indurkhya, Co-Head of AI at Virtualitics. Virtualitics is a venture-backed firm based in Pasadena, California. In this episode, we discuss what it means to explore our data and identify where the gaps in our data quality or potentially the gaps in essential data fields are. Aakash speaks to us this week about not only what exploration, that is to say, why it’s valuable conceptually – when dealing with tremendous volumes of data, what does exploration accomplish, and where specifically, better exploration can lead to better results? He dives into two specific use-cases, one in drug development and one in retail. While these are vastly different worlds, these use-cases focus on exploring data well to train an AI model and deliver the desired results in the enterprise. Aakash provides an excellent conceptual overview from a C-suite vantage point of the role. Virtualitics sponsor this episode.
