It’s hard to imagine a doctor being content with a partial diagnosis of a patient’s health. Similarly, it can be difficult to understand why companies would only invest partially in understanding the health of their data. In an organization,…Continue

No taxonomy of Deep learning models exists. And I do not attempt to create one here either. Instead, I explore the evolution of Deep learning models by loosely classifying them into Classical Deep learning models andEmerging Deep Learning models. This is not an exact classification. Also, we embark on this exercise keeping our goal in mind i.e. the application of Deep learning…Continue

Summary: NIST weighs in on Big Data technology, standards, use cases, and a surprising variety of valuable documentation.
You can bet that the folks at DARPA and our other Federal forward thinkers had their eye on Big Data pretty much from its inception in about 2007. Say what you will about the Fed but those research dollars gave us the Internet, super computing, and a whole…Continue

I think I have a pretty good grasp on the meaning and scope of 'Machine Learning' but less so on the emerging field of 'Deep Learning'. Tomasz Malisiewicz has both the background and perspective to put these terms in context for us and I enjoyed his clear explanation. You can see it here:…Continue
If you’re relatively new to Machine Learning and it’s applications, you’ll more than likely have come across some pretty technical terms that are often difficult for the novice mathematician/scientist to get their head around.
Following on from a previous blog, (10 Common NLP Terms Explained for the Text Analysis Novice), we decided to put together a list of 10 Machine…Continue
If you do text analytics and sentiment analysis then you've likely come to expect the open and free APIs from all the major social media sources as something that won't go away. But about 90 days ago Facebook withdrew open access to its Facebook posts data stream and made it available only to a select list of developers that support Facebook. This is quite a blow to the larger social media monitoring industry but may be just the first of many instances where the big social media sites…Continue

Hello and Welcome!
This is my attempt to start cataloging all the interesting articles, industry reports, whitepapers, and news that I read every month, related to technology and data science. There are tons of material published everyday. Of course, I can't read them all because I am human! But I want to share everything that I found to be…Continue

When the performance of an employee is evaluated, ideally there are no externalities to complicate the analysis. If the employee has a computer that is constantly freezing up - or the servers in the company frequently operate slowly - the employee's performance data will reflect the functionality and effectiveness of these systems. If the company occupies a highly competitive market, declining sales data is attributable at least in part to competition rather than the behaviours of employees.…Continue

Information about provided services, customers and transactions can be stored in different database systems and data warehouses, depending on the way in which a company operates.
Due to such arrangements, even the simplest analyses or report may require significant expenditures of time, as well as in-depth knowledge about database systems and their availability.
For an analyst this situation is frequently the source of difficulties – lack of required…Continue

One question I get asked a lot by my clients recently is: Should we go for Hadoop or Spark as our big data framework? Spark has overtaken Hadoop as the most active open source Big Data project. While they are not directly comparable products, they both have many of the same uses.

"In fact men will fight for a superstition quite as quickly as for a living truth - often more so, since a superstition is so intangible you cannot get at it to refute it, but truth is a point of view, and so is changeable."
On the 1st of July, I decided to set up a professional group on LinkedIn in order to create a hype free…Continue

I recently started reading Gary's blogs and thought we shared both a point of view (a higher level what's good for the business POV) and that little voice in the back of our heads that's always asking - is that really true? Hope you enjoy this one. Many of Gary's current blogs appear here.…Continue
