PostgreSQL, MonetDB, and Too-Big-for-Memory Data in R -- Part I

In a blog from three months ago, I wrote on "kind of" big data in R. The "kind of" was meant as a caveat that data size in R is limited by RAM. I also mentioned the potential of working with relational data stores for even larger data, and made a vague proposal to…

How to Execute R and Python in SQL Server with Machine Learning Services


Did you know that you can write R and Python code within your T-SQL statements? Machine Learning Services   in SQLServer eliminates the need for data movement. Instead of transferring large and sensitive data over the network or losing accuracy with sample csv files, you can have your R/Python code execute within your database. Easily deploy your R/Python code with SQL stored procedures making them accessible in your…

Uncovering Anxious Deep Learning for Ease

Deep Learning is an algorithm which has no theoretical limitations of what it can learn; the more data you give and the more computational time you give, the better it is – Sir Geoffrey Hinton (Google).

The true challenge to Artificial Intelligence is to prove and  solve the tasks that are easy for human to perform but hard to describe formally. Problems that we solve intuitively, that feel automatic, like…

Fugues of Operational Market Alignment

In the “Ecology of Metrics,” I wrote about “alignment” being a type of metric; alignment can measure the extent to which an organization’s supply or capacity is matched against the demands or needs of the market.  For instance, in a call centre, it would be highly desirable to have agents available to respond to calls at “precisely” the same time that clients are making calls.  If alignment is off even by only 15 to 30 seconds, impatient clients might hang up and never call again.  Similarly…

Outlier detection with time-series data mining

In a previous blog I wrote about 6 potential applications of time series data. To recap, they are the following:

  1. Trend analysis
  2. Outlier/anomaly detection
  3. Examining shocks/unexpected variation
  4. Association analysis
  5. Forecasting
  6. Predictive analytics

Here I am focusing on outlier…
