2020 Challenge: Unlearn to Change Your Frame

Maybe the biggest challenge we face as a society is our ability to unlearn – to let go of – outdated concepts and beliefs in order to adopt new approaches. Our everyday lives are dominated by outdated concepts: change the oil every 3,000 miles, don’t wear white before Memorial Day, only senior management has the best ideas, don’t eat dessert until you’ve cleaned your plate, trade wars are easy to win, leeches work wonders on headaches, etc.

Well, I’m going to throw down the gauntlet…

Business Intelligence vs Business Analytics

Business Intelligence (BI) and Business Analytics (BA) are both used to interpret business information and create data-based action plans. The two terms are frequently used interchangeably, and many people consider one to be a subset of the other (there's some disagreement about whether BI is a subset of BA, or BA is a subset of BI). However,  it might be more accurate to describe them as two arms of successful business planning: BI tells you the…

Overcoming Barriers in Machine Learning adoption in corporate world

We have data-driven decision support systems implemented in Management Information Systems(MIS). Algorithms created by humans coded into MIS chew raw data and spit out decisions. The MIS systems were developed by human with substantial effort in software development. Once created, they allowed very little flexibility in deriving insights from new data sets. Now we have Machine Learning (ML) systems capable of making data-driven decisions or predictions without the need for explicit…

Will AI Force Humans to Become More Human?

Will Artificial Intelligence (AI) create an environment where design thinking skills are more valuable than data science skills? Will AI alter how we define human intelligence? Will AI actually force humans to become more human?

Okay, sounds questions one might expect from an episode of Rod Serling’s TV series “Twilight Zone” (which I preferred over the meaningless college football bowl games on New Year’s…

Data Science insights after a rookie year in the industry

Countless hours of online courses haven’t prepared me for challenges in my first full-time position as a data scientist. Yes, I learned Python well enough to land the job, but the reality of developing a data science project went beyond my anticipations. Now it’s time for me to pinpoint several misconceptions and matters that are not voiced enough.

Do not take data for granted…

Traveling to Other Planets with Google Maps

Interesting application leveraging very big data, as you can zoom in to check out pretty detailed landscape on a few nearby planets and satellites. It would be even better if it allowed you to simulate space travel. At a speed 32 million times faster than the speed of light, it would take you 4 seconds to reach the closest star (Alpha Centauri): that's how fast you need to travel to see the stars really moving in the sky. By contrast, space travel at just the speed of light would make stars…

Setting the Cutoff Criterion for Probabilistic Models

For decision making, human perception tends to arrange probabilities into above 50% and below - which is plausible. For most probabilistic models in contrast, this is not the case at all. Frequently, resulting probabilities are neither normal distributed between zero and one with a mean of 0.5 nor correct in terms of absolute values. This is not seldom an issue accompanied with the existence of a minority class - in the underlying dataset.

For example, if the result of a…

Data Science Job Titles to Look Out for in 2020

Data scientists are disappearing. No, not in the physical sense (no rapture here), but in the job market. The term “data science” has been a catch-all term for years, but as companies better learn what goes into hiring data science teams, the generic “data science” job titles might go the way of the dodo.

Not that we’re sad about it. Confusing job postings and a misunderstanding of the fundamentals of working in data science has led to disillusionment on both sides.…
