Who said Harvard MBAs don’t code?

Last spring, we published a Harbus piece asserting that “coding is the new business literacy.” As we look back on the student-led digital literacy movements at HBS over the past year, we’d say that the student body agrees.

How Things Work: Machine Learning

It all started with the TOM case on Watson. After a class-long discussion on what is Toronto, Anton and I were amazed by how we were able to cover one of the greatest machine learning triumphs in human history without actually talking much about machine learning.
