Out of all the machine learning algorithms I have come across, KNN has easily been the simplest to pick up. Despite it’s simplicity, it has proven to be incredibly effective at certain tasks (as you will see in this article).
And even better? It can be used for both classification and regression problems!…Continue

Having spent the better part of the last decade helping organisations in the U.S. and the U.K. use data to drive profit, efficiency, and performance improvements, I thought it would be helpful to jot down best practices for organizations that are looking to get the most value out of their enterprise-level financial and operational data sets.
Every organisation entering the roaring 20s knows that they must use their data as a strategic differentiator to gain a competitive advantage and…Continue

How to build a project from scratch by using a latest, state-of-the-art AI technology stack?
After spending a few years working on data science - enriched products, we tried more than 10 different workflow concepts - adopted scrum & agile, waterfall, iterative kanban canvas etc.
As a result, we've drafted our own data science project development workflow that allows us to iterate over data science hypotheses, process and acquire data, build…Continue

Imagine this scenario:
You enter your dentist’s office as a follow-up visit to the 6-month checkup you had last week. You’re nervous because the checkup revealed bleeding in your gums and cracks in your fillings, all things that require your dentist’s repair on this occasion.
So, you’re there nervously fidgeting in the lobby waiting for your name to be called, envisioning all sorts of dentistry implements of torture that will soon be…Continue

Quantum computers come in 2 varieties, quantum annealers and quantum gate models. So far, DWave is the only company selling quantum annealers.
A third type of device is now available from Fujitsu. Fujitsu calls its device a "quantum inspired digital annealer". The Fujitsu device does not have any quantum correlation (quantum entanglement)…Continue

Data Science is an increasingly competitive field and participants are constantly working hard to build more levels of skill and experience. This trend has given rise to ever more demanding job descriptions for the position. To stay competitive, it makes sense to prepare yourself for new ways of working coupled with a variety of new tools. In an attempt to combat the “unicorn” mentality where many firms try to hire a single individual to fill roles for data scientist, data engineer,…Continue

Machine Learning (ML) development is an iterative process in which the accuracy of predictions made by the models is continuously improved by repeating the training and evaluation phases. In each of these iterations, certain parameters are tweaked continuously by developers. Any parameter manually selected based on learning from previous experiments qualify to be called a model hyper-parameter. These parameters represent intuitive decisions whose value cannot be estimated from data or from…Continue
This is a major contribution of analytics and big data when you talk about the success of mobile app development. Big Data is large data sets that can be analyzed to know more about the user’s interests, demographics, trends and interactions. We rely on mobile apps present on our phone for most of the tasks like a reminder, planner, health and fitness, etc.…Continue

While many of the programming libraries encapsulate the inner working details of graph and other algorithms, as a data scientist it helps a lot having a reasonably good familiarity of such details. A solid understanding of the intuition behind such algorithms not only helps in appreciating the logic behind them but also helps in making conscious decisions about their applicability in real life cases. There are several graph based algorithms and most notable are the shortest path…Continue
