Periodic reminder of things in data science to keep in mind:
  1. Data is never clean.
  2. You will spend most of your time cleaning and preparing data.
  3. 95% of tasks do not require deep learning.
  4. In 90% of cases generalized linear regression will do the trick.
  5. Big Data is just a tool.
  6. You should embrace the Bayesian approach.
  7. No one cares how you did it.
  8. Academia and business are two different worlds.
  9. Presentation is key - be a master of Power Point.
  10. All models are false, but some are useful.
  11. There is no fully automated Data Science. You need to get your hands dirty.
