State-of-the-Art Statistical Science to Tackle Famous Number Theory Conjectures

The methodology described here has broad applications, leading to new statistical tests, new type of ANOVA (analysis of variance), improved design of experiments, interesting fractional factorial designs, a better understanding of irrational numbers leading to cryptography, gaming and Fintech applications, and high quality random number generators (and when you really need them). It also features exact arithmetic / high performance computing and distributed algorithms to compute millions of…

Be Forewarned CEO’s; Build Out Your Data Science Capabilities or Perish

We all know how horror movies work: there is someone evil in the neighborhood (like Michael Myers in “Halloween” or Freddy Krueger in “Nightmare on Elm Street” or Tom Cruise in “War of the Worlds”) and the soon-to-be-victim, we’ll say in this case, an unassuming CEO, wanders into a dark space (basement, closet, wood shed, attic) where the evil doer is waiting for them with a new agenda for the digital enterprise they can’t assimilate and they perish.

Slash! Cut! Gouge! Scream!…

How you can explain Machine Learning models ?

Machine Learning (ML) models are increasingly being used to augment human decision making process in domains such as finance, telecommunication, healthcare, and others. In most of the cases, users do not understand how these models make predictions. The lack of understanding makes it difficult for policy makers to justify their decisions. Most of the ML models are black boxes that do not explain on its own why it reached a specific recommendation or a decision. This forces the users to say…

Augmented Analytics Engine

Role of Augmented Analytics in Future !!  Insight generation is changing (and That’s a Good Thing)

 

Have you ever been in situation when you need quick insight generation but due to lack of resources and information you lost large amount of revenue? We live in data world, not only data but Big Data. Datasets are being generated in very large volume, variety and very high speed. Just forget about handling this type of data with your Traditional BI system. Due…

ELAINE Symbolic AI offers community tool to cure “TL;DR” Syndrome

ELAINE Symbolic AI offers community tool to cure “TL;DR” Syndrome

 

The idea of applying Natural Language tool to advance human intelligence is not new. Examples can be found among popular search engines and chat-bots. These applications generally require Machine Learning ahead of lengthy preparations with “human in the loop” training datasets. These pre-requisites are cost intensive in terms of time, labor, infrastructure and skill.

 

A few years…

Data Tanks for Incremental Training of Machine Learning Models

You are familiar with the term data lake. A data lake is a repository used to store unlimited volume of data. These days, most of the cloud service providers allow us to host scalable data lakes for storing data as it arrives. For using these data lakes, it is not required to structure the data and we can run different types of applications on it. Usually they are applications for big data analytics and machine learning. These applications need entire data to be present in one data lake and… Continue

The difference between Statistics and Data Science: Big Data and Inferential Statistics

This post is based on two insightful threads I read online (References below)

Based on these, I address the question of ‘The difference between Statistics and Data Science’. Traditionally, most people, including me, would say that ‘statistics came first and Data Science builds upon statistics’. This chain of thought is valid but as you see…

Likely, unlikely, certain and impossible

I live in Jacksonville, Florida, where the odds of a hurricane on any given day are "improbable". But does that mean I shouldn't stock up on hurricane supplies and have an emergency preparedness plan? Far from it. Hurricane Irma blew through my city in 2017, causing around $85 million in damage and the worst…

How the Use of Design Thinking Prevents Rushing into Solution Mode

“We are too busy building the solution to bother the customer to identify, validate, value and prioritize their requirements.” – Name not disclosed to protect the ignorant

I see this habit all the time with experienced people; the tendency to jump right into solution mode when dealing with customers. Many of these experienced “experts” have seen the “problem” so many times before, that they just “know” the right solution. Heck, sometimes these “experts” even cut off or…

Dataframe Storage Efficiency in Python-Pandas

Summary: It's no secret that Python-Pandas is central to data management for analytics and data science today. Indeed, what we're seeing now is Pandas being extended to handle ever-larger data. Underappreciated is that Pandas is a tunable platform, supporting its own datatypes as well as those from numerical library Numpy. Together, these comprise…

Driving Stakeholder Engagement with an Interactive Hypothesis Development Canvas

Begin with an end in mind” – Stephen Covey “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”

No truer words have ever been spoken.  A simple phrase that makes everyone’s life easier and more productive.  Our data science team tries to live by that simple phrase, but it’s difficult because we want to jump right into “solution mode” …we have seen so many similar problems, that we already know and understand how to solve that problem.  And that’s an…

Ability to generalize - A measure of intelligence ?

Knowledge acquisition is about building generalization capabilities. In machine learning world, generalization refer to the model's ability to make accurate predictions from never before seen data. Well generalized models possess intelligence to work on data from new scenarios. This is true for human intelligence also. Children start learning from examples and initially they fail to respond properly to unforeseen situations. Gradually they acquire generalization skills to respond to all… Continue
