A neural network is a series of algorithms that aims to identify underlying relationships in a set of data through a process that is similar to the way the human brain functions.
Keras is an open-source library written in Python for advancing and evaluating deep learning models. It enables you to define and train neural network models in a few lines of code. In this post, we will learn how to build a neural network using…Continue

Those of us who were data science practitioners before the ubiquity of buzz words like “Fourth Industrial Revolution”, remember a time when data science was being described as “utter hubris” by some of the worlds leading quants. All these buzz words, coupled with misplaced applications of data science have turned it into a fairly nebulous concept. Which is a problem.
In facilitating my data science workshops I've realized there are two main groups of audiences and learners.…

Luxury car manufacturer, BMW in the year 2017 faced production stoppage due to Bosche’s inability to supply steering gears. This issue which lasted for about a week caused the German manufacturer to lose €400-€500m, aside from impacting the production of further models.
This example clearly shows how a small inefficiency in the supply chain can have an overall negative impact on the productivity of organizations. A large number of companies which are a…Continue

I want to apologize to my small audience for being so long in waiting to post a blog post. My goal had been one per week, but life intervened in the meantime. While I have tried to be productive, the blog post fell by the wayside.
I did write a couple of short stories, I must confess. I wrote How to Engage in Counterespionage Operations Against Ghosts because I grew up watching Sherlock Holmes movies and the Twilight Zone. I wrote a small set of short stories…Continue

How often are you in a situation where you have 2 alternatives either yes or a no, black or a white, and so on. These are instances where you ‘classify’ your scenario into only two solutions, a number of solutions may vary but usually, they are two solutions. This is what we call as ‘Classification’ we classify the outcomes in a set number of instances usually two. This week at The Datum we have how can we use Neural Networks as the…Continue

This post is a part of my forthcoming book on Mathematical foundations of Data Science.
In the previous blog, we saw how you could use basic high school maths to learn about the workings of data science and artificial intelligence
In this post we extend that idea to learn about Gradient descent

In “Importance of Thinking Differently…Hint: Don’t Pave the Cow Path”, I introduced the concept of the “3 Horizons of Digital Transformation.” I wanted to provide a framework that helped organizations differentiate between “Digitalization” versus “Digital Transformation”. Unfortunately, in succeeding client engagements, I realized I did a crappy job of explaining these 3…Continue

A key strength of NLP (natural language processing) is being able to process large amounts of texts and then summarise them to extract meaningful insights.
In this example, a selection of economic bulletins in PDF format from 2018 to 2019 are analysed in order to gauge economic sentiment. The bulletins in question are sourced from the European Central Bank website. tf-idf is used to rank…Continue
