Thank you for the documentations. Priceless! :)

Dear Vincent,

Do you know how long does membership approval in "Analytic Bridge" take? I want to submit an answer to the self-correcting random walk problem. The answer is long, and I left a copy of my document (not the final draft) in Github.

Your posts are very informative and I have learned a lot from them. Thanks for sharing!

Dr. Granville,

I enjoyed your white paper on Building Dashboards that Flow and could not agree more with minimalism. One thing that seems to be missing from the dashboard packages I've seen is control charts.  At least for the process owner, my personal opinion is a control chart should be the first chart.  If the process is not stable and predicable, statistical analysis seems futile.  Before I retired (two months ago) we started including these in the process owners' LEAN PIT boards.  We generated them in Minitab.  It only takes a few clicks once the data is paste into Minitab.  Bill Bahl

Dr. Granville,

Regarding the passerelle options for the Data Science certification program, does the notation of "IEEE Computer Science Society - Member" refer to Associate Membership in the IEEE Computer Society, or to full IEEE Membership with additional membership in the IEEE Computer Science Society?

Please advise, at your earliest convenience.

Hi Vincent,

Can you suggest some points or links about serious data quality issue with the information pulled.

I recently was hired as a data scientist. As a new hire, leading the department of Business Intelligence, I am faced with self-posed questions such as, "What do I need to accomplish in the first 5 days?" And, "What should I accomplish in the first month?" And, of course, "How do I develop a long-term plan for transforming the business into a data-driven organization?" To make the problem of determining how I should focus my attention even more complicated, I have a single employee whom I want to groom to understand the algorithms that I am implementing. Also, I have a CEO who only agreed to hire for this position because the CIO, CFO, and COO encouraged him to do so, but he is highly skeptical of what data science can do for the organization; this complicates matters too because it puts on me a pressure to be dazzling right out-of-the-box. 

I have given these questions considerable thought. I am on day 3 of my new job. I have decided to orient myself on the business' data, query tools, and self-service tools, such as QlikView. I have so many ideas, I have difficulty in choosing a single direction in which I should run. I must note that I want to be significantly impactful while minimizing disruptions in the business' daily functions. To that end, I keep thinking, "run a clustering analysis! Discover the patterns and trends in the company's data to begin the model-building process."

What advice would you give a young data scientist on his 4th day on the job (as it is for me, tomorrow)?

Are Data Scientists Becoming Obsolete?

Posted on September 12, 2021 at 6:30pm 0 Comments

This question is raised on occasion. Salaries are not increasing as fast as they used to, though this is natural for any discipline reaching some maturity. Some job seekers claim it is not that easy anymore to find a job as a data scientist. Some employers have complained about the costs associated with a data science team, and ROI expectations not…


Machine Learning Perspective on the Twin Prime Conjecture

Posted on September 7, 2021 at 6:30am 0 Comments

This article focuses on the machine learning aspects of the problem, and the use of pattern recognition techniques leading to interesting, new findings about twin primes. Twin primes are prime numbers p such that p + 2 is also prime. For instance, 3 and 5, or 29 and 31. A famous, unsolved and old mathematical conjecture states that…

Orbits of Non-periodic Fourier Series: Simple Introduction, Cool Applications

Posted on August 17, 2021 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

These Fourier series can be considered as bivariate time series (X(t), Y(t)) where t is the time, X(t) is a weighted sum of cosine terms of arbitrary periods, and Y(t) is the same sum, except that cosine is replaced by sine. The orbit at time t is…
