Stochastic Processes and New Tests of Randomness - Application to Cool Number Theory Problem

This article is intended for practitioners who might not necessarily be statisticians or statistically-savvy. The mathematical level is kept as simple as possible, yet I present an original, simple approach to test for randomness, with an interesting application to illustrate the methodology. This material is not something usually discussed in textbooks or classrooms (even for statistical students), offering a fresh perspective, and out-of-the-box tools that are useful in many contexts, as…

Data Collection Tools for Events Analytics

One of the first things we do after launching a website nowadays is connect to Google Analytics. A little bit down the road we’ll connect more “out-of-box” analytics tools to calculate funnels, retention, A/B tests, and more.

These tools are great and work fine until a company gets bigger and analytics requirements get more sophisticated. It’s time to set up a data infrastructure, which means selecting a data collection tool, ETL tool, data warehouse, and BI tool on top of…

5 Hot AI & Machine Learning Trends for 2018

The mantra for technology evolution has been to replace or minimize human assistance with machines. Traditionally human support systems are rapidly being replaced by machines & by automation. The dependence on human decision-making is shrinking fast. If we take a domestic cooking gas stove as an example, we now have the automated safety gas stove where the gas supply can be cut off completely by itself in case of gas leakage or mishandling, thus avoiding fatal accidents and…

Extending churn analysis to revenue forecasting using R

In this article we will review application of clustering to customer order data in three parts.  First, we will define the approach to developing the cluster model including derived predictors and dummy variables; second we will extend beyond a typical “churn” model by using the model in a cumulative fashion to predict customer re-ordering in the future defined by a set of time cutoffs; last we will use the cluster model to forecast actual revenue by estimating the ordering parameter…

GDPR and the Paradox of Interpretability

Summary:  GDPR carries many new data and privacy requirements including a “right to explanation”.  On the surface this appears to be similar to US rules for regulated industries.  We examine why this is actually a penalty and not a benefit for the individual and offer some insight into the actual wording of the GDPR regulation which also offers some relief.
