Welcome

Dear Reader,

Welcome to my blog, I’m delighted you’re taking the time to check it out.

I’m writing this blog for you, in one of the the following categories:

  1. Organizations looking to extract maximum value from their investment in data and human expertise.  Check out Machine Learning Services and Solutions
  2. Passionate world changers, who “get it”: if I say to you “systems thinking and nonlinear understanding fueled by visual/motor/spatial analysis and fed by machine learning, data, and expert collaboration” then you say “woah, of course!”
  3. Practical practitioners: you want to keep a finger on the pulse of decision intelligence, because you are using it to make your organization more successful, or you are a vendor or consultant offering DI solutions.
  4. Machine learning professionals, who want to understand what’s next
  5. Friends and fans, who enjoy a front-row seat to watch an important new discipline as it unfolds

To learn more about DI, please the getting started with DI page.

Also, I’d very much appreciate if you’d consider subscribing to receive a free eBook and to stay on top of new developments.

If you think my readers would enjoy your point of view, please consider being a guest blogger on this site (you can see other guest posts here and guest blog guidelines here).

Please don’t hesitate to drop me a line with suggestions or requests.

Again, thank you for being here, and I hope to have a chance to get to know you.
