Data Science Central

*The new, completed version of this Data Science Cheat Sheet can be found here.*

We are now at 20, up from 17. I hope I find the time to write a one-page survival guide for UNIX, Python and Perl. Here's one for R. The links to core data science concepts are below - I need to add links to web crawling, attribution modeling and API design. Relevancy engines are discussed in some of the tutorials listed below. And that will complete my 10-page cheat sheet for data science.

Here's the list:

- Tutorial: How to detect spurious correlations, and how to find the real ones
- Practical illustration of Map-Reduce (Hadoop-style), on real data
- Jackknife logistic and linear regression for clustering and predictions
- From the trenches: 360-degrees data science
- A synthetic variance designed for Hadoop and big data

- A little known component that should be part of most data science a...
- 11 Features any database, SQL or NoSQL, should have
- Clustering idea for very large datasets
- Hidden decision trees revisited
- Correlation and R-Squared for Big Data
- Marrying computer science, statistics and domain expertize
- New pattern to predict stock prices, multiplies return by factor 5
- What Map Reduce can't do
- Excel for Big Data
- Fast clustering algorithms for massive datasets
- Source code for our Big Data keyword correlation API
- The curse of big data
- How to detect a pattern? Problem and solution
- Interesting Data Science Application: Steganography

Vince, this is great for aspiring data scientists! I think it is a great resource! Something else I have found beneficial that lets me focus on my data rather than spinning up the analytic stacks is a tool called Stackspace. Its in beta, but has save me a ton of time!

Thank you for the great resources that help researchers in their projects.

I recommend this website to learn how to program in java:
