Asghar Mohammadi - Data Scientist

What was your background before coming to Training Works ? 


I am a Data Scientist with a Master’s of Computer Science degree from Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador.  Before joining Training Works, I had been applying data science tools on large medical data sets to help my team prepare recommendations for family physicians in the province for the purpose of improving the quality of healthcare. 


Now at Training Works, I am using data visualization and predictive modeling to create occupational and skills prediction models that will ensure organizations have the right people, with the right skills, in the right place,  at the right time! 


How do you believe technology will change the future ?


I believe technology will change the future dramatically. People will be able to focus their energy on high level tasks, and computers and machines will begin taking over manual tasks, like driving a car or cleaning a house. This will allow us to have more time to think, create and innovate! 


What do you like to do when you are not working with data ? 


When I am not playing with data, you can find me hanging out with my family and friends, or drinking coffee near the ocean.
