Data Science and the Open World Assumption

A funny thing happened in the last few years. We began to lose the Closed World Assumption.

Now I can understand that this is not exactly huge, earth-shattering news; most people do not in fact realize that they've been using the Closed World Assumption to begin with. However, I'd contend that this event is having a transformative effect upon the way…

From Farming To Big Data: The Amazing Story of John Deere

US agricultural manufacturer John Deere has always been a pioneering company. Its eponymous founder personally designed, built and sold some of the first commercial steel ploughs. These made the lives of settlers moving into the Midwest during the middle of the 19th century much easier and established the company as an American legend.

Often at the forefront of innovation, it is no surprise that it has embraced Big Data enthusiastically – assisting pioneers with the taming…

From Data to Insight: Uncovering the Hidden Costs of Data

If you’re planning on a data driven approach, you’re going to need data, most likely from a nice mix of sources that will give you the right amount of insight you need to make it worthwhile.

But if you’re not careful, you can quickly spend a lot of money getting it whether it’s “free” or not. Because as much as we’d like it to be, most of it is definitely not free, even if it is on an open and…

Sensitivity Mapping of Document Databases

I rarely get to use a walkie-talkie during a course in school. As the snapshot of my desktop shows on the image below, I had both a multi-line telephone and portable radio. Just before the exam, I participated in a simulation. Our tabletop exercise contained an emergency scenario: a train derailment involving the evacuation of residents. I served as the Social Services Director. Although I didn't choose this role for myself, I thought it made sense given my graduate degree in the area of…

Data Circus - Circus Data - The Big Three, Dead for a day is not OK

A Big Top Circus has three main tents. What does this have to do with data? Many things. The Big Three, the Birth index, SSI index, and the Death index determine if you are an American or not. An entry in any one of these indexes is a reason for calling it what ever you want capitalism, freedom, justice, etc… Now if you are listed in all three indexes the privilege is unique. It is the privilege of being sold to the highest corporate bidder.…

What is your plan for cultivating analytics talent?

With the supply of analytics talent in the labor force slowly growing to meet demand, a majority of companies are looking within their own walls for solutions. While there is clearly a need for new graduates and data scientists who know the most cutting-edge techniques of analysis, there is just as much of a need for information workers who know both the business and technical sides of an organization.

Current employees who are able to develop an analytics skill set and combine that…

The Internet of Things may be giving over to the Internet of Everything as more and more uses are dreamed up for the new wave of Smart Cities.

In the Internet of Things, objects have their own IP address, meaning that sensors connected to the web can send data to the cloud on just about anything: how much traffic is rolling through a stoplight, how much water you’re using, or how full a trash dumpster is.…

Big Data = Hype; But Why That Doesn't Matter

From time to time, you still come across someone with the opinion that Big Data is nothing more than a fad, which will be forgotten about soon enough.

You might not expect to hear this from me, but they’re actually right. Well – half right, at least!

As I’ve written before, I’m not actually a fan of the term “Big Data”, which puts overemphasis on the importance of size. Anyone who’s been reading my articles for a while will know that I’m firmly of the opinion that what you do…
