For a recent University of San Francisco MBA class, I wanted to put my students in a challenging situation where they would be forced to make difficult data science trade-offs between gathering data, preparing the data and performing the actual analysis.
The purpose of the exercise was to test their ability to “think like a data scientist” with respect to identifying and quantifying variables that might be better predictors of performance. The exercise would…

What is an easy way to find that needle in the haystack? Why not use a control chart?Using a control chart on a data set is an efficient way to identify data sets that are out of control. A control chart is a statistical tool that is used to chart data points over time and zeros in on points that are outside of the normal range (outliers). The main components of a control chart…

It is hardly possible in real life to develop a good machine learning model in a single pass. ML modeling is an iterative process and it is extremely important to keep track of your steps, dependencies between the steps, dependencies between your code and data files and all code running arguments. This becomes even more important and complicated in a team environment where data scientists’ collaboration takes a serious amount of the team’s… Continue

I was wondering how to approach this blog when I decided to toast some raisin-bread for breakfast. Shortly after I started eating it, I began coughing. I have shared this “type” of story with a few people. I often continue eating something regardless of my exact circumstances - that is to say, oblivious to the consequences. As I ate more of the raisin-bread and my coughing worsened, I eventually reached for my inhaler. (I have been diagnosed with borderline asthma now by two doctors.) … Continue

This is a tutorial to show how to implement dashboards in R, using the new "flexdashboard" library package.
this new library leverages these libraries and allows us to create some stunning dashboards, using interactive graphs and text. What I loved the most, was the “storyboard” feature that allows me to present content in Tableau-style frames. Please note that for this you need to create RMarkdown (.Rmd) files and insert the code using the… Continue
