Abstract: Data science, while promising significant advancements, often grapples with high costs and uncertain returns on investment. This challenge has prompted a shift in expectations, with investors and hiring managers increasingly emphasizing the importance of data scientists delivering tangible business value. Our talk applies the Pareto Principle, commonly known as the 80/20 Rule, in the realm of data science. This principle, typically understood as achieving 80% of outcomes from 20% of efforts, offers a strategic framework for enhancing the efficiency and impact of data science initiatives.
