Misleading graphs are abound on the internet. Sometimes they are deliberately misleading, other times the people creating the graphs don't fully understand the data they are presenting. "Classic" cases of misleading graphs include leaving out data, not labeling data properly, or skipping numbers on the vertical axis.
I came across the following misleading graphic in a…Continue
The interview process is likely the most daunting task a data scientist will face in their career. The pressure and competition to…Continue

Data gathering to keep a competitive advantage over other businesses will drive additional profit growth, especially in the e-commerce industry. Unfortunately, sending too many requests can get you blocked or permanently banned, which inevitably leads to often halts in your web scraping operation. However, there is a way to stay block-free during scraping procedures, but let's first answer, why sites block bots in the first place.…Continue

Because launching an online business has little to no initial cost, aspiring entrepreneurs will likely face a number of rivals who may try to undercut their pricing. Therefore, it is important to monitor your competitors to determine what products they are offering at what price. Monitoring competitors’ product listings will give you a wealth of valuable information about your competitors—perhaps a well-funded rival is doing penetration testing into one of your niches, or maybe you’re…Continue

The work of an Italian mathematician in the 1930s may hold the key to epidemic modeling.
That's because models that try to replicate reality in all its detail have proven hard to steer during this crisis, leading to poor predictions despite noble and urgent efforts to recalibrate them. On the other hand overly stylized compartmental models have run headlong into paradoxes such as Sweden's herd immunity.…Continue

Product of two large primes are at the core of many encryption algorithms, as factoring the product is very hard for numbers with a few hundred digits. The two prime factors are associated with the encryption keys (public and private keys). Here we describe a new approach to factoring a big number that is the product of two primes of roughly the same size. It is designed especially to handle this problem and identify flaws in encryption algorithms.
While at first glance it appears…Continue

Industry 4.0 or the fourth industrial revolution is predicted to revolve around data. Organizations that will thrive this revolution will be the ones that will realize the value of data as their corporate asset and make smart technology choices to make data-driven decisions. For the organizations of today to get future-ready, having smart analytical applications to bring together data from multiple sources, form a meaningful dataset, and accelerate the…Continue

Mergers & acquisitions happen when companies believe they are more valuable together than when operating separately. The companies join workforces, systems, infrastructure, and data to become a new, more powerful, more valuable, more effective entity. That is only until they realized they overlooked or underestimated the key issues with data, IT infrastructure & integration plans. In fact, most merger and acquisition plans fail miserably because of data…Continue

That’s correct. 1 server and 10 lines of code are all you need to search among 1 billion images in a few hundred milliseconds. Its ease of use a few lines of code to handle massive-scale reverse image search. Its superior standalone performance satisfies your need for low-latency, real-time searches. Its support for distributed systems and cloud-native…Continue

In various formats, one of the most frequent questions I am asked is the equivalent of:
“Can you recommend a free self-paced learning path for #machinelearning and #deeplearning?”
In this post, I attempt an answer
This is based on my work / teaching students primarily at Oxford University, but I…Continue

It's been two years since Mckinsey invented the term analytics translator, called it the ‘new must-have role’ and predicted we’d need around 5 million of them.
That’s a bit more than the entire population of Los Angeles, but just slightly less than all of Norway.
For the past ten years, we’ve struggled with the ambiguous title ‘data scientist’, then ‘citizen data scientist’. Now it’s ‘analytics translator’.
Although I've seen many 'data…Continue
Over the years I’ve often been asked by beginners where they should start in statistics, what they should do first, and which parts of statistics they should prioritise to get them to where they want to be (which is usually a higher…Continue

When creating a website, it is an essential objective of developers to make it appealing. They undergo a few systems, including drawing idea sketches, building models, and experimenting with the website before pushing it live.
These procedures don’t occur parenthetically. Developers spend many months on constructing a beautiful and responsive website. Be that as it may, the development in technologies is making things more manageable for them.
The cutting edge technologies like…Continue

Summary: What is an AI Product Manager and how do you know when you need one.
The role of Product Manager (PM) can mean many things dependent on the specifics of the company, its markets, its channels, and the variety of its products. It’s almost impossible to put a single label on the responsibilities of a…Continue
Oh, the strategy pundits hate me! It’s not because I’m tall, good looking and from Iowa (well, 2 out of 3 ain’t bad), it’s because I think Strategy as a “Discipline” is way overblown. I won’t go as far as the Harvard Business Review to state that “Strategy is Dead”, but the importance of carefully defining a strategy (typically done in the ivory towers of the puzzle palace) and then commanding all the little soldiers to follow the strategy script are over!
