S1E3: Doc KAMPAKIS, ‘Iron Man’ of the #Blockchain !!
Posted by Hermann DJOUMESSI on / 10 Comments
THIS WEEK ON ADMP: We stop in the UK to visit another ‘Iron Man of the Blockchain’ Stylianos Kampakis, an ‘expert data scientist with a mission to educate the wider public about the ‘Power’ of Data science and A.I.
Moreover, he has unconventional views of the crypto-space, but also the “Blockchain, Deep Learning technology and even A.I….!! → Which is why he writes books, too !!
Books for entrepreneurs, business-leaders, decision-makers, and even English premier league football coaches, like Tottenham ‘hotspurs’ of London…! (#WhyOhWhy?)
- Yes ‘mister’ Jose Mourinhio should have called him for a tip, before being sacked by Man Utd, for those of you who follow the English Premier League (EPL)
YES! Our guest today, is a ‘Special one’ …when it comes to helping top managers in any fields, to make the RIGHT decision, even without a ‘technical’ background !!
- BOOKS or E-BOOKS??
Few would argue that Data have a way of revealing the truth to whoever knows how to understand them, and almost turn it into a ‘music’…
As social media data scientist, Growth-Hacker, VC,…we have witnessed with our guest, the rise of Data processing and management, and mostly ‘Data discovery’, that lead often to ‘new business models’ or iterations.
Follow us as we check below, in 8 points and the odd CHATBOT questions (or ‘Annoying disruption’), what this ‘Trekkie lover, and ‘Blockchain Maximalist’ ..Doctor… KAMPAKIS !!! ….had to say, though…
#1. ICO: THE RISE OF TOKENOMICS
#ADMP1: Hello… ‘Doctor Blockchain’ … pray tell us your name and … yeah…what do you do ?
SK: My name is Stylianos Kampakis, but people call me Stelios.
I am a data scientist with more than 10 years of experience
in the fields of AI, machine learning and statistics, and a blockchain researcher.
I am also member of the Royal Statistical Society, honorary research fellow at the UCL Centre for Blockchain Technologies and CEO of The Tesseract Academy. Go straight to my book, by clicking on the picture, or here! #YoLO! —->
– TESSERACT ACADEMY ? –
The Tesseract Academy’s mission is to educate decision makers on deep technical topics such as data science and blockchain. You can read more about me and my work on: http://thedatascientist.com and http://tesseract.academy.
#ADMP2: Awesome! We got ourselves, a true ‘Uber-Geek’! -> What is your book about, then? How do you intend to achieve those aims with…. your book !?
SK: The book is the ultimate handbook for any non-technical decision maker who wants to use data science in their organisation.
It is based upon the workshops I am conducting with the Tesseract Academy and my many years of experience in this field.
The book achieves this through a simple-to-understand language, and many use cases and example, that cover a very wide spectrum of industries.
#2. WHAT’S up Doc?
#ADMP3: Is your book really solving a problems, i mean in…in Real Life?
SK: The book is full of examples taken directly from my work. So, it does not explain how to solve one specific problem, but it helps you understand how data science could be used to solve problems in many different industries, such as healthcare, retail, finance, B2C apps, and many more.
SK: It also talks about the best practices when hiring and managing data scientists, as well as how to build the right kind of culture to make sure that the impact of data science is maximised within an organisation.
CHATBOT QUESTION: Can you tell us your TOP5 Dishes of All-time? and your TOP5 Greek philosophers (including Andreas Antonopoulos?)?
SK: 1. Sushi
4. Pad thai
5. Ribeye steak
#ADMP4: OK…not a bad choice…we had a feeling you were a connoisseurs and food-lover… How about philosophy? There’s a huge tradition from the island, going back to ‘old times’…
SK: 1. Friedrich Nietzsche
#3. BYZANTINE INTOLERANT?
#ADMP5: Where do you stand on so-called ‘shitcoins’ and Altcoins, for the young entrepreneurs?
SK: Stay away from most of them! Blockchain is an amazing technology but we’ve seen lots of non-sense in the altcoins and ICO space, so tread carefully.
#ADMP6: we will take your advice seriously and jump onto your case studies on Tokenomics from your blog !! :))
6. CHATBOT: Can you break down in 20 words the Byzantine fault tolerance?
SK: A characteristic of a system of nodes that can tolerate a percentage of the nodes being malicious, when the system tries to reach agreement on the true state of the world.
#ADMP7: #DANG! You must be a DOCTOR, you ! :)) … Dr Kampakis, you just blew this entire BLOG’s ‘mind’ away !! –
–> That’s one hell of the shortest answer, to one of the most complex and fundamental problem solved by the Bitcoin protocol, in the 21st century… (By M. Castro and B. Liskov, 1999 from the ‘World-class’ Massasuchetts Institute of Technology, MIT)
If you Believe Wikki: ‘ Byzantine fault tolerance is the dependability of a fault-tolerant computer system, particularly distributed computing systems, where components may fail and there is imperfect information on whether a component has failed‘
“STAY AWAY from #Shitcoins !” (Dr Kampakis)
#ADMP8: #WoosaH! :)) – Well Doctor ‘Blockchain’, with ALL DUE respect! We’ll take a break from here and have you back next week?
Dr KAMPAKIS: Yeah sure…see you next week, on this very BLOG ! :))
#ADMP: Thank you, you’re far Too KinD…
→ Come back next week for more fascinating insight into Dr Kampakis, $aga!!
