Using Data Visualization Graphs for Better Decision Making in Digital Marketing

Graphics reveal data. It is a reasonably new invention (compared to say complex mathematical equations) as it was only in the late 1750 to 1800 that the first graphs were invented and referred to as ‘linear arithmetic’. The art and science of data visualization has grown in leaps and bounds since then and is a vital part of informed decision making today in both the business and scientific world. To manage your digital marketing campaigns with insight, it is crucial to understand the…

Real Time Analytics and Stream Processing

   

In many business scenarios it is no longer desirable to wait hours, days or weeks for the results of analytic processes. Psychologically, people expect real-time or near real-time responses from the systems they interact with. Real-time analytics is closely tied to infrastructure issues and recent move to technologies like in-memory databases is beginning to make ‘real-time’ look achievable in the business world and not just in the computer science laboratory.…

Why Data Science Development Process is like Playing Game Boy® Final Fantasy

Describing the Data Science analytics development process has always been a struggle for me.  The corporate world is full of linear processes.  Major monolithic enterprise applications – ERP, MRP, SFA, CRM systems – have been architected to reduce operational complexity via a series of interlocking, heavily-engineered (and re-engineered) linear processes (though I suspect that anyone who has survived an SAP ERP implementation would take issue with my “reduce…

Data analysis and visualization in Perl

Guest blog by Stephan Loyd.

Hello everybody, this is my first post here, so forgive me if I screw it up.

Let me firstly introduce background of my work. Several years ago I landed onto a Perl job. It also involves some other languages like Python and R, but it was mainly Perl, until last year focus of my role switched and I still do some Perl but much less since then. I was a little…

New Stock Trading and Lottery Game Rooted in Deep Math

I describe here the ultimate number guessing game, played with real money. It is a new trading and gaming system, based on state-of-the-art mathematical engineering, robust architecture, and patent-pending technology. It offers an alternative to the stock market and traditional gaming. This system is also far more transparent than the stock market, and can not be manipulated, as formulas to win the biggest returns (with real money) are made public. Also, it simulates a neutral,…

Design Obstacles that Contribute to Job Security

I often encounter blogs highlighting the amount of effort needed to obtain high-quality data for analysis.  Many aspects of this effort seem reasonable to me: there might be cut-and-pasting, merging, parsing, restructuring, extractions, conversions, concatenations, and conditionals.  There might even be coding embedded in the file containing loops, more sophisticated conditionals, and detailed algorithmic processes.  All of these are relatively minor challenges that can be overcome…

Bayes Theorem in One Picture

Bayes’ Theorem is a way to calculate conditional probability. The formula is very simple to calculate, but it can be challenging to fit the right pieces into the puzzle. The first challenge comes from defining your event (A) and test (B); The second challenge is rephrasing your question so that you can work backwards: turning P(A|B) into P(B|A). The following image shows a basic example…

Real-World Data Science Challenge: When Is “Good Enough” Actually “Good Enough”

Nothing like a devastating catastrophe to bring a bit of reality into the world of IoT and data science.  The recent crashes of the new Boeing 737 Max have been attributed to a single point of failure – a sensor – in the design of the complex navigation system[1]. 

To summarize the situation:

  • Boeing’s new 737 MAX included larger, more efficient engines than the previous generation and as such, the engines were…

Calculating exclusion limits for a new theory in hardcore science

In many fields of science, it is important to understand the relevance of new theories or hypotheses in a description of experimental data, assuming that such data are already well represented by predictions of some well-accepted theory. A popular statistical method for setting upper limits (also called exclusion limits) on model parameters of a new theory is based on the CLs method.…

IoT and Smart Classes

As we live through the ever-changing world, education is the sphere that remains surprisingly behind the general rapid advancement. The WEF Future of Jobs Report 2018 states that technological breakthroughs are changing the global labor market, blurring the frontier between human jobs and automated machine tasks and people are still largely unprepared for them.…
