Seth Dobrin PhD

Vice President and Chief Data Officer, Cloud and Cognitive Software, IBM
Dr. Dobrin joined IBM in November 2016 as the Vice President and Chief Data Officer for IBM Analytics(now IBM Data and AI). He is responsible for the transformation of the Cloud and Cognitive Software business operations using data and analytics and providing his perspective and experiences to clients. Having traveled around the World speak with clients he quickly realized that every enterprise wants to leverage AI … machine learning … data science. At the same time enterprises are struggling to realize the value of this investment. There are several reason for this phenomenon. First, most enterprises hire data scientists without a clear strategy or metric to measure the return on their investment. Second, there is a fundamental difference between executing data science and AI as part of a Kaggle-like competition or as part of a graduate program and executing data science and AI in the enterprise. Third, finding the right talent can be difficult and retaining them can be even more difficult. Fourth, looking for unicorns instead of focusing on integrated Agile teams leads to turnover and disconnected efforts. Finally, not understanding the regulatory implications of a data science programs and either putting too many constraints on the program or having ferrel programs. In January 2018 he established the Data Science Elite team. The team is comprised of the top data scientists in the World who have successfully implemented AI in the enterprise sustainably and at scale. The aim of the team is to sit with clients and help them implement data science around a specific use case. And demonstrate IBM’s philosophy and methodology for successfully executing and operationalizing data science in the enterprise. To address many of the issues above. Seth is a prolific blogger and thought leader in the areas of data science, data governance, European Union General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR) and enterprise digital transformation. His blogs are based on real world experience in a multinational Fortune 500 company as well as from his experiences traveling around the World speaking with leaders of the Worlds largest companies.

Testimonials

  • "The show has been good. There’s been a lot of people, a lot of attendance. People passing by; I kind of like the idea of having different types of businesses like IoT, Security and Big Data, having a nice mix of things. I get the chance to talk to some people that have a complete different perspective.”
    Principal Sales Engineer - Maria DB
  • “We’ve been on exhibition duty the whole time. It’s been that busy. I has a box of business cards when I arrived, 500, and all gone, every single one is gone. Really engaging. “It’s our second time at the show, we did it last year. Definitely had to do it again this year, and it’s been a resounding success, really really good. I would suggest that anybody that is entering this market space, look at the BDW show, not only form a view point of exhibiting, but also presenting. You have to do the two together to make it worthwhile."
    Sales Director, UK – Splash BI

    Marketing Manager - Oracle
  • “This is our second time participating in Big Data World in Singapore and we’ve seen a lot of traffic over the two days. The conversations in the big data community around machine learning is a lot more mature here. Not only the delegates are interested in big data, they are also keen to learn more about data science, artificial intelligence and internet of things.”
    Regional Sales Director - Qubole Inc.
  • "Pivigo has participated in many events in the UK & Europe over the last 12 months and Big Data World was by far the best of them all. The event was a huge success delivering a ROI, prompting us to participate in Big Data World in Germany and London next year."
    Marketing & Communications Manager - Pivigo
  • "I have taken away some great ideas from Big Data World! I have talked with some great suppliers which was my main reason for attending – to connect and network with people in the industry. There’s not many opportunities like this for you to go to one place and see everything in one room. I hope to be back again next year! "
    Head of Data Science - Barclays (Visitor)
  • "Cloud Expo Europe & Data Centre World located alongside Big Data World added huge value to my experience at the event as it made me think about the different ways of relating to data & making me question things which I don’t usually think about from a data point of view in my every day work life. Overall, I liked the range, scope & diversity of the event and I will definitely recommend the rest of the Sky team attend alongside myself in 2019."
    Data Scientist - Sky (Visitor)
  • "I’m here to learn about all emerging technologies, get an insight into the developments in the technology world. I think around Cloud and Machine Learning and AI are all big areas to cover so I think being able to get high level insights from the presentation available is important. I will be coming back next year as well."
