Big data involves a process of grasping and understanding the significance of massive data that is highly disorganized and is very difficult to analyze using conventional relational databases. Drawn from various sources, it is delivered in several ways. This data, which is invaluable in today’s globalized world, is growing exponentially.
As it affects all aspects of mankind, companies can tap it to serve their customers better and rise up the value chain. IBM estimates that…Continue

Spark’s primary abstraction is a distributed collection of items called a Resilient Distributed Dataset (RDD). It is a fault-tolerant collection of elements which allows parallel operations upon itself. RDDs can be created from Hadoop InputFormats (such as HDFS files) or by transforming other RDDs.

Autonomous cars are racing down the highway at speeds exceeding 100 MPH when suddenly a car a half-mile ahead blows out a tire sending dangerous debris across 3 lanes of traffic. Instead of relying upon sending this urgent, time-critical distress information to the world via the cloud, the cars on that particular section of the highway use peer-to-peer, immutable communications to inform all vehicles in the area of the danger so that they can slow down and move to unobstructed…Continue
My nephew's a very impressive young man. Five years ago, he received a PhD in Biochemistry/Molecular Biology from a prestigious university, earning numerous teaching and research awards along the way. He then took a faculty…
One of the most difficult and most critical parts of implementing data science in business is quantifying the return-on-investment or ROI. In this article, we highlight three reasons you need to learn the Expected Value Framework, a framework that connects the machine learning classification model to ROI.Continue

Did you know that you can execute R and Python code remotely in SQL Server from Jupyter Notebooks or any IDE? Machine Learning Services in SQL Server eliminates the need to move data around. Instead of transferring large and sensitive data over the network or losing accuracy on ML training with sample csv files, you can have your R/Python code execute within your database. You can work in Jupyter Notebooks,…Continue

The best trained soldiers can’t fulfill their mission empty-handed. Data scientists have their own weapons — machine learning (ML) software. There is already a cornucopia of articles listing reliable machine learning tools with in-depth descriptions of their functionality. Our goal, however, was to get the feedback of industry experts.
And that’s why we interviewed data science practitioners — gurus, really —regarding the useful tools they…Continue
