Crows can recognize human faces and will even hold grudges against people they don’t like.
HOW MUCH LONGER ARE WE GOING TO JUST SIT AROUND AND TAKE THIS?!

We sat down with Haile Owusu, Mashable’s new Chief Data Scientist to learn more about his position and the pioneering work he is doing for Mashable.
Can you tell us a little bit more about what you do as a Chief Data Scientist for Mashable?
As a data scientist, I take in the reams of data that Mashable receives from its users and model them to capture the interesting behaviors of our audience. Once collected and analyzed, I can then offer statistical models to understand and predict our audience’s future behavior.
What are you working on right now?
Right now I am working with Mashable’s patent-pending Velocity algorithm to better understand how Mashable’s content propagates on the web. Mashable has a unique and highly engaged audience and they are very inclined to take in the content we provide for them in interesting ways. We want to be able to predict where the content will go after a certain period of time.
What does it mean for Mashable to have a Chief Data Scientist?
Part self-therapy session, part explanation, part love-letter to podcasting, and part product announcement. I’m very happy with how this turned out, and I couldn’t have asked for a more receptive audience. ∞ Permalink
