Math and statistics are vital components of any data scientist's tool box. While some view statistics as a type of math, the reality is that they are completely different subjects. Math is all about numbers and concrete answers, while statistics is making sense of numbers via educated "guesses." This one picture, based on Rossman et al's essay Some Key…Continue

Software is at the base of the considerable number of headways we find in our lives. Software development innovations have seen a gigantic change in the course of the most recent couple of years. Be it Amazon's automaton conveyances or Snapshot with increased reality contributions, the product drives the world as we know it. Undertakings have embraced practically all the rising innovations in their product improvement, and Artificial insight is no special case. Effect of man-made reasoning…Continue

Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) software is software for producing forgeries and imitations of data (aka synthetic data, fake data). Human beings have been making fakes, with good or evil intent, of almost everything they possibly can, since the beginning of the human race. Thus, perhaps not too surprisingly, GAN software has been widely used since it was first proposed in this amazingly recent 2014 paper. To gauge how widely GAN software has been used so far, see, for example, this…Continue

Given the scale of its impact and the kind of alteration that it brought into our lives, COVID19 is one of the most unprecedented crises of our times. Although it is not the only pandemic that humanity has been through, COVID19 is occurring in the time of the fourth industrial revolution where everyone and everything is one click way, and where the excess of data and computing has allowed machines to be more intelligent than ever. In the age of deep tech and data, data science is definitely…Continue
