8 Most-Used Data Science and Machine Learning Services for 2020

In the era of the Internet, the ability to crunch large amounts of data and process it with speed and efficiency has become essential for businesses to survive. But you try sitting down and going through all that data by hand: you'll get done sometime in the year 2050 if you're lucky.

That's where machine learning comes to the rescue. But…

Why we need more Bayesian trained data scientists than frequentist post COVID 19 ..

Earlier this week, I was speaking at an event on AI for Real Estate where I showed an example from a BBC clip which said that “central London is now a ghost town” (due to COVID 19)

A few months ago, this headline would have been laughable

Overview on Forecasting Models in Power BI

Time Series forecasting in PBI is based on the thumb technique of smoothening time series prediction called Exponential Smoothening (ES). ES of time series data assigns exponentially decreasing weights for newest to oldest observations. ES is also be used for time series with trend and seasonality. This model is usually used to make short term forecasts, as longer-term forecasts using this technique can be quite unreliable. Collectively, the methods are sometimes referred to as ETS models,…

ANOVA vs Regression in One Picture

If you scour the internet for "ANOVA vs Regression", you might be confused by the results. Are they the same? Or aren't they? The answer is that they can be the same procedure, if you set them up to be that way. But there are differences between the two methods. This one picture sums up those differences.

Quantum Neural Net, an Oxymoron


Venn diagram showing overlap between "quantum" and "neural network"

The term "quantum neural networks" is being used with increasing frequency by the quantum computing community. Maybe as a dishonest, bait-and-switch advertising strategy, this makes sense. However, from a scientific standpoint, "quantum neural network" is a very poor name choice for what is being alluded to here.

Artificial Neural Networks, often called "Neural Nets" for short, are supposed to…
