It’s only when there’s enough representative data from the field they’re applied to, that process automation by Machine Learning technologies can really be harnessed, says Jean-Cyril Schütterlé, VP Product and Data Science at Sidetrade.
Likewise, spam detection is most effective when the learning algorithm has been populated with relevant examples. The steering system of a self-driving car is the same…Continue

Shahab Sheikh-Bahaei, Ph.D.*
Principal Data Scientist
Machine Learning (ML) is closely related to computational statistics which focuses on prediction-making through the use of computers. ML is a modern approach to an old problem: predictive inference. It makes an inference from “feature” space to “outcome/target” space.…Continue
My job has the great advantage of bringing me in touch with some outstanding and truly brilliant people. As an example, last year I spoke at the PrecisionAg Vision Conference in Phoenix (and I’ll be speaking there again this fall on October 12), and ran into a number of companies that were applying data science and big data principals to the world of agriculture. Having grown up in Charles City, Iowa, I have a special place in my heart for farming and the importance of agriculture to the…Continue
In this two-part series, we will explore text clustering and how to get insights from unstructured data. It will be quite powerful and industrial strength. The first part will focus on the motivation. The second part will be about implementation.
This post is the first part of the two-part series on how to get insights from unstructured data using text clustering. We will build this in a very modular way so that it can be applied to any dataset. Moreover, we will also focus…Continue

How to pick a Data Science book :
Choosing a data science book is one of the important steps to properly learn from the experts in the field. It doesn’t have to be labeled as a data science book as it can relate to one of its many branches.
In this short review, I am going to…Continue
Step 0: Should I try to Scrape this?
So you're excited about a great idea, you've found a great site that looks easy to scrape, time to jump right in and start writing a scraper, right?
First things first, it's crucial to examine the data you wish to scrape. Is it well organized? Will it be difficult to clean later? Sentences can be notoriously hard to clean, because sentences have to be parsed somehow to extract…Continue

Summary: Is everyone a ‘data scientist’? What about ‘data engineers’ and the junior versus senior, or skill level distinctions? We do seem to need some agreement about titling. Data Scientists is still the prestige title but there are some folks lobbying to take that title away.
"Artificial intelligence has been brain-dead since the 1970s." This rather ostentatious remark made by Marvin Minsky co-founder of the world-famous MIT Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, was referring to the fact that researchers have been primarily concerned on small facets of machine intelligence as opposed to looking at the problem as a whole. This article examines the contemporary issues of artificial…Continue

I recently sat down with Bob Rogers. Bob is Intel’s Chief Data Scientist for Analytics and AI. I sought out answers to the some of the most popular questions related to artificial and augmented intelligence. The entire interview was illuminating, and shed some light on aspects that many people wouldn’t know about. (Sponsored by Intel)
So what is AI? Artificial…Continue
