Sione Palu commented on Jason Li's blog post Differences between Data Mining and Predictive Analytics

"Don't try to re-define these. Data-mining and Predictive analytics are the same thing. Different word labelling but both doing the same task. Dont get bogged down in word semantics. It is similar to the argument between the difference between…"

Sione Palu commented on ajit jaokar's blog post The AI layer for the Enterprise and the role of IoT

"Quote : "algorithm which is learning on its own"
No, the algorithm doesn't learn on its own. There's a huge misunderstanding in machine-learning & data science community about learning. They equate the term learning as…"

Sione Palu commented on Roger Huang's blog post What I learned applying data science to data science salaries

"Quote : "Stay away from proprietary tools and go towards open-source"
WHY?
The user should use the tool that suits his/her analytical tasks at hand.
Matlab is my main tool which is commercial but the open source APIs &…"

Sione Palu commented on Emmanuelle Rieuf's blog post How to Start Learning Deep Learning

"In my opinion, deep-learning is just a tiny fraction of toolsets available that are available today for doing analytics. I just can't think of how I would use it apart from doing image classification since analytics is a huge area where certain…"

Sione Palu commented on RAJA VARMA PAMBA's blog post Can Data Science be the CURE of Mankind

"Science is and has always been the cure for man-kind and it is not data-science. Sure data-science helps, but knowledge is driven by science. Engineering is applied science."
