The Divergence Index: A new polarization measure for ordinal categorical variables

In the statistical literature, for ordinal types of data, are known lots of indicators to measure the degree of the polarization phenomenon. Typically, many of the widely used measures of distributional variability are defined as a function of a reference point, which in some “sense” could be considered representative for the entire population. This function indicates how much all the values differ from the point that is…

Oil & Gas and IoT: The Trio That Takes the Modern Society to a New Level

The domestic economy gets directly and indirectly impacted by the Oil and Gas Industry. It is pretty much noticeable that the oil and gas prices directly affect the economy as a whole. If the United States is to be picked, oil and gas is crucial to its individuals and businesses. But, this does not cancel out the reality that the rest of the globe requires oil and gas in equal measures to run a productive life and business operations. This is the reason why the Oil and Gas Industry requires…

Disposable Technology: A Concept Whose Time Has Come

Imagine…imagine that you have been challenged to play Steph Curry, the greatest 3-point shooter in the history of the National Basketball Association, in a game of 1x1.  Yea, a pretty predictable outcome for 99.9999999% of us.

But now image that Steph Curry has to wear a suit of knight’s armor as part of that 1x1 game.  The added weight, the obstructed vision, and the lack of flexibility, agility and mobility would probably allow even the average basketball…

Assumptions of Linear Regression in One Picture

If any of the main assumptions of linear regression are violated, any results or forecasts that you glean from your data will be extremely biased, inefficient or misleading. Navigating all of the different assumptions and recommendations to identify the assumption can be overwhelming (for example, normality has more than half a dozen options for testing).
This image highlights the assumptions and the most common testing options.…

What Is Big Data And What Are Its Importance

Big Brother? No, no, no, Big Data.

If someone tells you about the Big Data concept in the course of a conversation, do not think that your interlocutor is addicted to the programs of reality TV (a term used by your audience) or trash (as you like to call your detractors). Although it sounds similar, that's the Big Brother. Although in the background and tangentially, you can find certain similarities, or relationships, between the television phenomenon Big Brother and the latest…

What is Quantum Computing and How is it Useful for Artificial Intelligence?


After decades of a heavy slog with no promise of success, quantum computing is suddenly buzzing! Nearly two years ago, IBM made a quantum computer available to the world. The 5-quantum-bit (qubit) resource they now call the IBM Q experience. It was more like a toy for researchers than a way of getting any serious number crunching done. But 70,000 users worldwide have registered for it, and the qubit count in this…

Machine Learning: Association Rule Mining

Users who bought this… Also bought this…‘, I consider this as the statement of this generation. There is not a single shopping application not showcasing this feature to gain more from the buyers. This rule is another by-product of Machine Learning. We humans always look for more similar things which we like for example if a reader starts to like a book of the specific genre say ‘biography’ he/she is leaned towards having more such similar books. And this is what we call…

Machine Learning : Unsupervised – k-means Clustering and Bootstrapping

This article is in continuation to our previous topic ‘Unsupervised Machine Learning’. Today I’m giving you another powerful tool on this topic named ‘k means Clustering‘. The work in this article is on the continuation of the previous WHO data set featured in ‘Machine Learning: Unsupervised – Hierarchical Clustering and Bootstrapping’. This artifact demonstrates implementing k means clustering and bootstrapping to make sure that the algorithm and clusters formed stand true.…

Machine Learning : Unsupervised – Hierarchical Clustering and Bootstrapping

1. What is Machine Learning

Humans have evolved over the years and have come to be what we say the smartest existing species on the planet Earth. Going back to ancient days, what do you think was the basis of the human evolution of what we are today? ‘Learning’ was the key for this advancement from the very first man to the most mindful species on the planet Earth. For example, consider how an intellect thought of rubbing two stones against each other…
