AITech interview with Magnus Cormack, Director of Data Science and Engineering, DMI
I graduated with a degree in Econometrics from the University of Melbourne, Australia and began my career in financial services. I moved to Europe in 2002 and started my own analytics consultancy. We were helping businesses to understand how better to use their data – a theme which continues through my career to this day. In 2005, I was part of a much larger technology consultancy, Electronic Data Systems, again focusing on using data to improve corporate decision making. In the 2010s I went through several start-ups and consultancies with varying degrees of success, but I learned about the importance of not thinking about data in isolation. It must be considered in the context of transformation, UX, and software development as well as data science and engineering. And that is what we have here at DMI.
