Create Transformed, N-Dimensional Polygons with Covariance Matrix

The covariance matrix has many interesting properties, and it can be found in mixture models, component analysis, Kalman filters, and more. Developing an intuition for how the covariance matrix operates is useful in understanding its practical implications. This article will focus on a few important properties, associated proofs, and then some interesting practical applications, i.e., extracting transformed polygons from a Gaussian mixture's covariance matrix.

I have often found that…

Causal Reinforcement Learning under Bareinboim at Columbia Univ.

Elias Bareinboim

I recently wrote a popular article on Causal AI. Note that Causal AI is almost exclusively the province of Bayesian networks (bnets), not of their more puny brethren, neural networks (NNs). Indeed, Causal AI is based on Judea Pearl's theory of causality which is expressed via bnets, not NNs.

Something that I didn't mention in my…

The Data Analytics Sector in a Post-COVID World – Ripe for Consolidation

The number of companies that have emerged in the data analytics space over the past decade or so has been enormous.  Some have done extremely well and become unicorns with sky high valuations, while others have crashed and burned.  The universe has seen the emergence of a group of integrated enterprise vendors (Salesforce, Oracle, Adobe, IBM etc.) and a large number of relatively small point solutions.  This universe is now reaching critical mass and the market is likely to enter a new…

Calculus For Data Science: What Do You Really Need to Know?

This one picture shows what areas of calculus and linear algebra are most useful for data scientists.

If you read any article worth its salt on the topic Math Needed for Data Science, you'll see calculus mentioned. Calculus (and it's closely related counterpart, linear algebra) has some very narrow (but very useful) applications to data science. If you have a decent algebra background (which I'm assuming you do, if you're a data scientist!) then you can learn…
