Hi Vincent,

Hope you are well

I wanted to request your kind consideration for the Data Science Certification, I wasn't very clear on how can I request for my profile to be reviewed - the message I can see is that my profile needs to be approved by an administrator 

Appreciate your direction and guidance on this 

Many thanks 

Kind Regards,

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.

A New Machine Learning Optimization Technique - Part I

Posted on October 23, 2021 at 6:30pm 1 Comment

In this series, we discuss a technique to find either the minima or the roots of a chaotic, unsmooth, or discrete function. A root-finding technique that works well for continuous, differentiable functions is successfully adapted and applied to piece-wise constant functions with an infinite number of discontinuities. It even works if the function has no root: it will then find minima instead. In order to work, some constraints must be put on the parameters used in the algorithm, while…

Is Machine Learning an Art, a Science or Something Else?

Posted on October 3, 2021 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

Source: see last section in this article

Of course this question begs for the answer that it is both an art and a science. I view it more like craftsmanship. This article discusses my opinion on the subject.

We need to start by defining what machine learning is, or more precisely, what kind of work it…


Machine Learning Career: Pros and Cons of Having a PhD

Posted on September 25, 2021 at 11:00am 0 Comments

It is often said that data science jobs are for seasoned professionals, and many job ads still show a preference for a profile with a PhD, with years of experience. Yet, many corporate employers have been disillusioned about the value that a PhD brings to the company. Likewise, many professionals, especially among those who just completed a PhD and…
