I found it odd there was no way to automatically deskew data in R, so I wrote a short little function to do it. It noticeably improves the peformance of linear models and linear support vector machines.
This is the first of a series of blogs in which I will reveal and explain rules of intelligence contained within grammar, that can be utilized to unleash intelligence in software. These rules are extremely simple, but still undiscovered by scientists.

We are seeking comments and suggestions on a proposed "Data Science Code of Professional Conduct".
Data science is an independent profession. Data scientists have a higher calling than just technical skills. We have a duty to use data science to make life, business and government better.…
Contrary to the prevailing sentiments, I counsel patience with regards to hiring a data scientist. Firstly, I mean no disrespect to my data science colleagues, and many will likely agree with me because no one likes to enter an environment where sub-optimal results or failure are probable.

Give me a few minutes and hopefully you’ll see it my…Continue

SQL is a database query and programming language for retrieving, updating, and managing the data from relational database. SQL was certified to meet ANSI in 1986, and became an international standard in 1987. Nowadays, SQL becomes a basic requirement for every programmer. However, the advantages cannot obscure the disadvantage. SQL is especially designed for technical personnel. SQL syntax is highly abstract, the logic is hard to understand, and only those with strong technical background…Continue
