About me

Who am I

Hi, I'm Peng Qian.

I was a senior data scientist at Alibaba, the largest e-commerce platform in China, and am currently the Chief Architect in the Big Data Department at a top Chinese investment bank.

What I do:

I have over twelve years of work experience in the field of big data, including:

  • Unique practical experience at the intersection of FinTech and Data Science.
  • A sharp intuition in the realm of data analysis and data visualization.
  • A deep passion for finding the intrinsic relationships within data and uncovering the stories behind them.

Why I am here:

The best investment is investing in oneself. This is why I am passionate about programming practice and self-improvement through reading.

The best way to learn is to share. When it comes to sharing, blogs have always been a great vehicle: easy to search, and rich in graphics and text.

Therefore, I have established Data Leads Future to share how to solve problems in actual projects using data. At the same time, I look forward to learning from you and growing together.

About content

Data Leads Future is dedicated to sharing data science stories from real projects, each containing unique and practical project experiences.

Some stories may be divided into two parts:

The first part is public. It introduces the technical principles and background in an easy-to-understand manner, striving to be light, and interesting, but thorough in explanation.

The second part requires a subscription or paid-for reading. It tells about real-world examples of the technology, executable code, best practices, and unique advice based on my own work experience.

You will find it to be excellent value for money.
