My name is Anne Lifton and I have over ten years of experience as a data scientist. I now lead teams of data scientists and help them design the most exciting and innovative programs that they can. We write math into computer code which makes guesses called predictions. These predictions are used to try to help the company sell their products at just the right price. We use math to learn from the past, and help us estimate the future. We also use math to design outfits and other fun things.
