If you were a technology, you'd be…?
Internet - This technology has enabled a much more efficient way to transmit all kind of information. I think this has been a major enabler for technological improvement in the recent years. Thanks to the Internet, we are now able to share knowledge instantly without any geographical constraint. Communications are also a lot easier, and it is changing the way we work by enabling remote working. I couldn’t imagine my life without this technology.
If you were an app, you'd be…?
Meetup - Meetup allows people who share same interests to get together and create events together. This app is becoming more and more famous in France. I think this is amazing as it permits to anyone to discover people sharing the same interests. I use this app often for data science meetup and language exchanges.
If you were a "fan" of someone / something on Facebook, you'd be ...?
Analytics Vidhya - Analytics Vidhya is a website which shares news about data science subjects. It can be about new progress in the research area, or new data science frameworks/technologies. This enables me to stay up to date with this field. The articles are very well written and quite enjoyable to read. They also have a Facebook page where they post news about their articles.
Are you rather Mass Marketing or Ultimate personalization?
Ultimate personalization - Working at Influans, the answer to this question seems obvious: Ultimate personalization. As a data scientist, I think that this is an interesting and challenging field in which I can fully grow my skills.
