2014年大数据行业最顶尖的人才有哪些?《财富》选出20位明星

大数据不只是要处理很多的数字,还得要通过这些数字建立模型、深入挖掘,并且寻找那些有可能改变企业运营方式的信息。以下谨为大家介绍20位大数据领域的顶尖人才。

    Eventbrite公司工程副总裁帕特里克•普尔斯

    帕特里克•普尔斯曾经告别科技业整整五年,这期间他转行做了一名职业扑克玩家。不过职业扑克市场在2010年萎缩得非常厉害,于是他决定重返科技行业。他并不为他的选择后悔,他说:“分析数据跟玩扑克很像。你玩了几千手牌,你也了解了人,你也处理了数据,而且你会留心寻找一些显眼的东西。这些都是共通的。”在Eventbrite网络售票公司里,普尔斯和他的团队开了一个推荐系统,能够根据用户已经浏览的内容,向他们推荐他们可能感兴趣的大型活动。这个系统的反响很不错,现在每周大约有100万人在Eventbrite上购票,其中近半数都是回头客。普尔斯的下个项目,是要想出怎样才能最好地卖掉需要预订座位的活动的门票。

    Patrick Poels, Vice President of Engineering, Eventbrite

    Patrick Poels left the tech industry for five years to be a professional poker player. The poker market dried up in 2010, though, and he decided to the return to technology. He doesn't regret it. “Analyzing data is a lot like poker," he says. "You play thousands of hands, you learn about people, you process data, you look for things that stick out. The same things are applicable.” At the online ticketing company Eventbrite, Poels and his team created a recommendation system that suggests events to users based on what other people also read. It's working: A million people a week buy tickets on Eventbrite, and nearly half of them are return buyers. His next project? Figuring out best practices for reserved seating events. —Shalene Gupta
