Summary: Computational Synthetic Biology (CSB) is likely to be both the next big thing and perhaps most important field to exploit data science. As the name implies, this lies at the intersection of data science and biological research. Big advancements and big investments are already starting to occur here. Data scientists with deep learning skills will want to check this out.

Most of you reading this are probably more used to playing online casino games using real money. It's money you’ve earned, transferred from your bank account into your casino account. You could walk out right now, go to an ATM and withdraw it. What you’re not probably used to is using cryptocurrency for crypto coin casinos. In fact, you might not even know that cryptocurrency casinos are a thing that… Continue

C-3PO and R2-D2 are an odd couple in the Star Wars universe. C-3PO is a cowardly droid who obeys pre-defined protocols and routine tasks, while R2-D2 is a curious and adventurous robot who learns from previous problems, uses logical thinking and larger concepts to solve new problems. But together they do things they could not do alone.
Similarly, RPA… Continue

In my most recent blog, I discussed the idea of aligning the supply of services to market demand. My conceptualization of “alignment” specifically relates to time intervals: i.e. having people at the right place and at the right time - for example, to take advantage of opportunities - is a sign of alignment. Alignment for me is often about the relationship between capacity and incapacity: the ability to supply services versus the inability to satisfy the market demand… Continue

When anybody says data science, one can immediately associate complicated technical knowledge with the term. Data scientists are considered to be highly technical professionals that develop incredible theories, analytics, algorithms etc. based on data. And data immediately takes the mind towards the business world.
However, data science has roots way beyond the business world. It may be a technical concept but it is beautiful in the way it can be used to solve problems. On the other… Continue

Python continues to take leading positions in solving data science tasks and challenges. Last year we made a blog post overviewing the Python’s libraries that proved to be the most helpful at that moment. This year, we expanded our list with new libraries and gave a fresh look to the ones we already talked about, focusing on the updates that have been made during the year.
Our selection actually… Continue

Summary: Data Science is the secret sauce that turns the dumb internet into the smart internet driving changes in society as fast as we drive changes in the internet. The best place to find data on this is Mary Meeker’s Internet Trend Report 2018. Here we use that data to look back at the last year and forward a bit in time to see what impact data science is having.

Hello, this is my third article about how to use modern C++ for solving machine learning problems. This time I will show how to make a model for polynomial regression problem , with well known linear algebra library called Eigen.
Eigen was chosen because it is widely used and has a long history, it is highly optimized for CPUs, and it is a header only library. One of the famous project using it is… Continue

The impact of a change of scale, for instance using years instead of days as the unit of measurement for one variable in a clustering problem, can be dramatic. It can result in a totally different cluster structure. Frequently, this is not a desirable property, yet it is rarely mentioned in textbooks. I think all clustering software should state in their user guide, that the algorithm is sensitive to scale.
We illustrate the problem here, and propose a scale-invariant methodology for… Continue
