Alexander Kashko replied to Mirko Krivanek's discussion Data to explain increasing revenue gap?
"I think point 4 is wrong. The wealthiest can always find ways to spend money.  I think what has happened is a prisoner's dilemma.   If an employer can cut wages  or lay off staff they make more money.  Either way their…"

Alexander Kashko commented on Vincent Granville's blog post New Model for Scientific Research
"This sounds like an interesting new way to do research, but do not write off academia just yet, and some published papers have been written by a machine. I like the idea of writing anfd partenring with someone who has a goift for sales and…"

Alexander Kashko commented on Renette Youssef's blog post Why Media Bias Has Nowhere to Run and Hide from Data Science
"Ilike it and may try the same with coverage of the Current Scottish "devolution" offers if i can get the data  and the time for such aproject. If I can get in touch with the authors I would like ot aks them how they handle the…"

Alexander Kashko commented on Pavan Kumar's blog post Apache Spark: distributed data processing faster than Hadoop
"I just downloaded the distribution and did not need any of these.  I was able to run locally using python and my HDFS system. I have yet to see if startuing up Hadoop as well made a timing difference"

Alexander Kashko commented on Vincent Granville's blog post Why Zipf's law explains so many big data and physics phenomenons
"Michael: I think, but it is only an intuition, that all these power laws result from interactions between agents or particles. Data Scientists do not need to know these concepts but  may  find them useful"

Alexander Kashko commented on Vincent Granville's blog post Why Zipf's law explains so many big data and physics phenomenons
"This reminded me of my PhD thesis which involved Dielectruc relaxation. Informally consider  a collection of say  interacting magnets on a grid whose alignment is determined by the alignments of their neighbours (The Ising Model for…"

Alexander Kashko commented on Mike Kennedy's blog post Leveraging Predictive Analytics to Avoid a Major Point of Hiring Failure
"Agreed no one wants to read 2500 resumes. Perhaps the key would be to have people read resumes and flag them as "interview" or not and allow a machine leanring algorithm to devise it s model of what is wanted. Pehraps after say 20 CVs the…"

Alexander Kashko commented on Mike Kennedy's blog post Leveraging Predictive Analytics to Avoid a Major Point of Hiring Failure

Alexander Kashko commented on Vincent Granville's blog post The law of series: why 4 plane crashing in 6 months is a coincidence
"Hmm.... I am a bit out of practice with full mathematical rigor (mortis?) but here are my thoughts Assume the probabilty of a binary event happenning per unit time is p. The probability of it not happening is q = 1-p Assume p is small (say 0.01)…"

Alexander Kashko replied to Mirko Krivanek's discussion Money laundering, counterfeit money: possible solution
"I see a lot of risks to freedom from tracking additional metrics.  People might end up reverting to barter.  We would need a lot of safeguards.  "

Alexander Kashko commented on Michael Walker's blog post The Deadly Data Science Sin of Confirmation Bias
