We at CAN have a pretty impressive staff of data scientists. They’ve all got their quirks, that’s for sure. Some like to run in their spare time, some bird watch, some binge watch House of Cards. When it comes to work, however, they have something in common. They work hard, around the clock if they have to, to accomplish projects and put their best foot forward for clients.

Do you think the Midwest is just a bunch of old barns and prairie grass? Think again.
In the next few years, CAN is predicted to be among the nation’s leaders in data science. We have an impressive resume to back this up. We’ve worked with multiple Fortune 500 hundred companies, and many more Fortune 1000 companies all over the globe and have built a solid reputation among local Omahans for producing experts in data science and IT.
Last month, TechBus interviewed our very own President, Nate Watson. TechBus is an Omaha-based group that posts bi-weekly interviews about local businesses and new technology.
Check out the video below of one of our data scientists and Director of Data Visualization Matt Hoover giving a tour of the The Startup Collaborative.

Dynamo is a new kind of IT consulting and recruiting agency that is based on an understanding of who companies actually need -- valuing people and culture fit over transactions and placement fees.
At the beginning of the project, we set out to show how the 2017 NCAA College Basketball Tournament could be a proving ground for Machine Learning analysis. There are very few places in the world where we can use the same model to predict multiple outcomes in a short period of time, have a ready-made scorecard (Vegas), have the general public understand what we are trying to do, and have a chance to "beat" the algorithm with their own knowledge.
We are doing better than anticipated even after the heartbreaker of a game last night between Wisconsin and Florida and are still ahead $165.
