Hundreds of programming languages dominate the data science and statistics market: Python, R, SAS and SQL are standouts. If you're looking to branch out and add a new programming language to your skill set, which one should you learn? This one picture breaks down the differences between the four languages.

I often use this quote from Isaac Newton in my teaching.
AI is a vast and a complex subject. No matter how much you know - you realise that there is really a vast amount more to learn. So, my way of learning a subject as complex and dynamic as AI, is to share my insights. This helps me to refine my own thinking.
I also follow…Continue

I am always looking for examples to bolster my University of San Francisco “Economic Value of Data” research efforts, and I think I’ve found a good one. The NHO article “Is value creation with data something Norway can live off of?” states that Norway believes that 1) the financial or economic value that Norway will be able to extract from data is on a par…Continue

There are many ways to deal with time-data. Sometimes one can use it as time-series to take possible trends into account. Sometimes this is not possible because time can not be arranged in a sequence. For example, if there are just weekdays (1 to 7) in a dataset over several month. In this case one could use one-hot-encoding. However, considering minutes or seconds of a day one-hot-encoding might lead to high complexity. Another approach is to make time cyclical. This approach leads to a…Continue

In part 1 of this article series, I provided a quick primer on graph data structure, acknowledged that there are several graph based algorithms with the notable ones being the shortest path/distance algorithms and finally illustrated Dijkstra’s and Bellman-Ford algorithms. Continuing with the shortest path/distance algorithms, I have illustrated Floyd-Warshall and A* (A-Star) algorithms in this part 2 of the article. As was stated in part 1, while the inner workings of these algorithms are…Continue

We can have an intuition of which professions will be more in demand in the future, according to new trends and social changes. It is clear that, as many large organizations mention, everything related to data science and artificial intelligence will be one of the most demanding professions in the future. But can we imagine what the new professions that will emerge around this discipline will be in the future?
21 Jobs: The Road to 2028…Continue

All machine intelligence is powered by data. This isn't ground-breaking, or even news – we've known about data's value for decades now. However, not all data are created equal, and we'll be looking at executing machine learning products from a standpoint that prioritizes the quality of the data streaming into them.
Machine Learning (ML) is a specific subset of…

Demand is the key indicator for every business to consider before taking the first step or expanding in the chosen market segment. It drives economic growth while central banks and governments boost demand to end down-sliding. Demand Prediction, which is part of Predictive Analytics, implies an evaluation of the number of goods and services that consumers will probably buy in the future. The most critical business factors such as turnover, profit margins, cash flow, capital…Continue

Since its advent in 1991, Python has been the choice of coders due to its simple features that include ease of understanding and readability of code but not limited to just that. There have been lots of changes in the codebase over time due to the contribution from developers worldwide. Simple syntax and faster execution make Python a favorable language among programmers. It is used widely to create websites and primarily in big data operations. To make the task of running…Continue

Sometimes it just takes a simple, provocative statement to kick-off the innovation process – to remove an everyday given like driving a car or possessing a landline phone or centralizing all of your data in the cloud – to fuel the innovation process. Henrik Christensen, director of University San Diego's Contractual Robotics Institute, issued such a provocative statement:
“My own prediction is that kids born today will never get to drive a car.”
I have recently been…Continue

The role of data is changing significantly with advanced methodologies used for upgrading sales and integrating business intelligence in the organisational schema for better outcomes. But in the absence of proper tools and techniques to manage and organise such a large pool of data, results might appear too far-fetched. So, what is the way out to handle bundles of unstructured data and harness its true potential for catalysing the growth? Data warehousing is the solution that…Continue

It is sometimes said that you don't need to know math to be a data scientist. Sometimes the opposite is said, after all, data science is supposed to be a science! Regardless, below are a few of my articles featuring how data science and math can benefit from each other - not just math to solve data science problems, but also data science to solve math problems.
Kubernetes is a technology that allows us to isolate an application. That is good but how can we scale this? Of course, we should create new containers.
But, how many containers should we have at the same time? How many…Continue
