User experience is considered the domain of designers, ergonomy specialists etc., irrelevant for data scientists. In this talk, I’ll share what I learned from our forecasting projects and how you can save money, time and sleep by focusing on the User Experience First. In addition, I’ll share 3 simple UI hacks that will make your:
a. Notebooks cleaner and ease productization
b. Speed-up data labeling
c. Help you identify mislabeled data (e.g., from labeling agencies, own domain experts, open databases)
