12 thought leaders on LinkedIn who are creating original content to learn Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning

The NHO article “Is value creation with data something Norway can live off of?” states that Norway believes that 1) the financial or economic value that Norway will be able to extract from data is on a par with the oil, while 2) the value of data is even more important than oil when considering the broader society…

How to make time-data cyclical for prediction?

There are many ways to deal with time-data. Sometimes one can use it as time-series to take possible trends into account. Sometimes this is not possible because time can not be arranged in a sequence. For example, if there are just weekdays (1 to 7) in a dataset over several month. In this case one could use one-hot-encoding. However, considering minutes or seconds of a day one-hot-encoding might lead to high complexity. Another approach is to make time cyclical. This approach leads to a…

Refined Data is the Key to Train Machine Learning

All machine intelligence is powered by data. This isn't ground-breaking, or even news – we've known about data's value for decades now. However, not all data are created equal, and we'll be looking at executing machine learning products from a standpoint that prioritizes the quality of the data streaming into them.

Machine Learning (ML) is a specific subset of…

Is Analytics-driven Innovation the Ultimate Oxymoron?

Sometimes it just takes a simple, provocative statement to kick-off the innovation process – to remove an everyday given like driving a car or possessing a landline phone or centralizing all of your data in the cloud – to fuel the innovation process. Henrik Christensen, director of University San Diego's Contractual Robotics Institute, issued such a provocative statement:

“My own prediction is that kids born today will never get to drive a car.”
