Episode 22 – From Admissions Counselor to Data Scientist with Infinite Campus’ Dan Jarratt, Part One

Dan Jarratt, Data Scientist with Infinite Campus discusses how his background in admissions lead him on a journey to push the education space to ask better questions and collectively sharpen its skills to find better answers.  How can a commitment to data science help enrollment managers build better relationships with those they serve?  How could we create a Netflix-style recommender that would use big data to help prospective students discover more best-fit colleges to consider? In part one of our interview with Dan, we walk through how a data scientist orders the world and how serious problems can be solved using data science.
