Nice blog, Chuck, well-thought-out as usual. Still, think of it this way; deep domain experts, interested in (only) causality, are Newtonian physicists. Predictable, repeatable, completely decomposable, finite. Data scientists are interested in correlations and behaviors, like quantum physicists; unpredictable by definition (but understandable as a probability), not completely decomposable, infinite (or nearly so; N-way correlations, only bounded by N)

My bet is on the quantum guys :-)

    I try and write something new 1-2 times per week; less if I'm travelling, more if I'm in the office. Hopefully you'll find the frequency about right!
