¿What is the Goodhart’s Law?

Goodhart’s Law states that individuals can anticipate the effects of a policy when evaluating the outcome of its actions, thus manipulate the policy.

When the focus is set in only one measure, people starts focusing on optimizing that single measure.

Data Science is a group of tools, techniques and disciplines that focus on converting large amount of data into valuable information that can be used to explain the relationship between several variables, generate prediction models and ultimately better deliver products or services.

Interest in Data Science exploded in the last years. Many companies are jumping into data science to better understand data to better deliver products and services. Several research centers are investing heavily in Data Science, including the University of California Berkeley, the New York University, the MIT and the University of Michigan.
