Key Graph Based Shortest Path Algorithms With Illustrations - Part 1: Dijkstra's And Bellman-Ford Algorithms

While many of the programming libraries encapsulate the inner working details of graph and other algorithms, as a data scientist it helps a lot having a reasonably good familiarity of such details.  A solid understanding of the intuition behind such algorithms not only helps in appreciating the logic behind them but also helps in making conscious decisions about their applicability in real life cases.  There are several graph based algorithms and most notable are the shortest path…

2020 Challenge: Unlearn to Change Your Frame

Maybe the biggest challenge we face as a society is our ability to unlearn – to let go of – outdated concepts and beliefs in order to adopt new approaches. Our everyday lives are dominated by outdated concepts: change the oil every 3,000 miles, don’t wear white before Memorial Day, only senior management has the best ideas, don’t eat dessert until you’ve cleaned your plate, trade wars are easy to win, leeches work wonders on headaches, etc.

Well, I’m going to throw down the gauntlet…

Business Intelligence vs Business Analytics

Business Intelligence (BI) and Business Analytics (BA) are both used to interpret business information and create data-based action plans. The two terms are frequently used interchangeably, and many people consider one to be a subset of the other (there's some disagreement about whether BI is a subset of BA, or BA is a subset of BI). However,  it might be more accurate to describe them as two arms of successful business planning: BI tells you the…

Overcoming Barriers in Machine Learning adoption in corporate world

We have data-driven decision support systems implemented in Management Information Systems(MIS). Algorithms created by humans coded into MIS chew raw data and spit out decisions. The MIS systems were developed by human with substantial effort in software development. Once created, they allowed very little flexibility in deriving insights from new data sets. Now we have Machine Learning (ML) systems capable of making data-driven decisions or predictions without the need for explicit…

Will AI Force Humans to Become More Human?

Will Artificial Intelligence (AI) create an environment where design thinking skills are more valuable than data science skills? Will AI alter how we define human intelligence? Will AI actually force humans to become more human?

Okay, sounds questions one might expect from an episode of Rod Serling’s TV series “Twilight Zone” (which I preferred over the meaningless college football bowl games on New Year’s…
