Ask HN: How do I improve our data infrastructure?


I was just hired as the first permanent data scientist in a big corporation. They’ve previously relied on consultants to build the infrastructure and the data science pipelines. We’re still around 10 people in the team.

The code is not pretty to look at, but this is not our biggest problem. We inherited a weird infrastructure: a mix of files in HDF5 and Parquet format dumped in S3, read with Hive and Spark.

Here are the current issues:
  • The volume does not require a solution that is this complex (we’re talking 100Gb max accumulated over the past 4 years)
  • It’s a mess: every time we onboard a new person we have to spend several days explaining where the data is.
  • There is no simple way to explore the data.
  • Data and code end up being duplicated: people working on several projects that require the same subset write their own transforma

I must admit, I never really understood why I should bother about protecting my personal data, why I should be worried about google knowing I recently looked for Spider-Man t-shirts, or where I live and work. So i looked up a few articles, and while I'm getting a better grasp, it still sounds a lot like the problem isn't that companies have my data, or that it is a danger for me, but that they are collecting and sharing it in an un-ethical way.
Since we're on the fediverse/federation I guess there are a lot of people who are more knowledgeable than me on the topic, I'd like to hear what you think about the topic?

Privacy Is Just the First Step, the Goal Is Data Ownership


Privacy for privacy sake is a weak argument, and privacy advocates should abandon it.
