Michael Yan’s new personal website of Data Science and Machine Learning
“You can have data without information, but you cannot have information without data.”
I’m an accomplished data scientist and thought leader with 10+ years of experience of research and bring to market advance analytics and machine learning solutions. As a person with insatiable intellectual curiosity, I am passionate about finding actionable insights hidden in vast amounts of raw data. I like data. Manipulating it, making it (simulation), modeling it, visualizing it and yes, even cleaning it. I have been extremely lucky to work in many different realms — I have built gambling market trading algorithms and live spots models for online sportsbook. I have built DSaaS tools housing customer analytics and recommendation engine for enterprise customers. I have built quantitative portfolio construction algorithms for PE firm. Now I am working with a team of excellent engineers to help people park their cars using cellphone app.
