Lognormal, Weibull, and Gamma distribution in One Picture

At first glance, the Lognormal, Weibull, and Gamma distributions distributions look quite similar to each other. Selecting between the three models is "quite difficult" (Siswadi & Quesenberry) and the problem of testing which distribution is the best fit for data has been studied by a multitude of researchers.

If all the models fit the data fairly…

5 Things to Consider Before Getting Started as a Developer in AI

Such technology as AI existed for years yet experienced a significant popularity boost just a few years ago. Today, it’s far from being a futuristic thing used by the evil geniuses to conquer the planet. Instead, Artificial Intelligence became a cutting-edge tool to improve the lives of millions by assisting us with our job, studies, home duties, and even relationships. There’s no need to mention that AI start-ups are the ones to run the IT industry: $37.5 billion was spent on the start-ups…

Simulating COVID-19 with Agent-Based Modeling

Here are some (very) early outputs from an Agent-Based Model of COVID-19 that I'm currently developing.

It allows configuring a number of parameters including:

  • population sizes (of healthy and infected people) by age
  • distribution of vulnerability by age
  • level of social distancing in effect by…

Machine Learning at the Edge

Edge computing moves workloads from  centralized locations  to remote locations and it can provide faster response from AI applications.  Edge computing devices are getting deployed increasingly for monitoring and control of real world processes like people tracking, vehicle recognition, pollution monitoring etc.  The data collected at the devices gets transported to centralized cloud servers over data pipelines and are used to train machine learning models. Training models needs lot…
