Over the last few years, organizations have made a strategic decision to turn big data into competitive advantage. Owing to rapid changes in the trends of BI and DW space, Big Data has been driving the organizations to explore the implementation aspects on how to integrate big data into the existing EDW infrastructure. The process of extracting data from multiple sources such as social media, weblogs, sensor data etc. and transforming that data suit the organization’s analytical needs is…Continue

One of the most intuitive and popular methods of data mining that provides explicit rules for classification and copes well with heterogeneous data, missing data, and nonlinear effects is decision tree. It predicts the target value of an item by mapping observations about the item.
You can perform either classification or regression tasks here. For example, identifying fraudulent…Continue

Nonlinear Regression and Generalized Linear Models:
Regression is nonlinear when at least one of its parameters appears nonlinearly. It commonly sorts and analyzes data of various industries like retail and banking sectors. It also helps to draw conclusions and predict future trends on the basis of user’s activities on the net.
The nonlinear regression analysis is the process of building a…

It used to be that we’d see a poorly made graph or a data design goof, laugh it up a bit, and then carry on. At some point though — during this past year especially — it grew more difficult to distinguish a visualization…

Summary: Reinforcement Learning (RL) is likely to be the next big push in artificial intelligence. It’s the core technique for robotics, smart IoT, game play, and many other emerging areas. But the concept of modeling in RL is very different from our statistical techniques and deep learning. In this two part series we’ll take a look at the basics of RL models, how they’re built and used. In the next part, we’ll address some of the complexities that make development a…Continue

Time-series data arise in many fields including finance, signal processing, speech recognition and medicine. A standard approach to time-series problems usually requires manual engineering of features which can then be fed into a machine learning algorithm. Engineering of features generally requires some domain knowledge of the discipline where the data has originated from. For example, if one is dealing with signals (i.e. classification of EEG signals), then possible features would involve…Continue
All of us are accustomed to the smart wearables, such as the ones we wear on a jogging track. We also have seen the concept of smart homes turn into a reality. We have seen a farmer sort and track his flock of sheep with the help of a mountable RFID device.
Every physical element around us (including ourselves) have become a part…Continue

Here we describe a rudimentary method, using basic trigonometry, to predict lunar and solar eclipses. The purpose is to get people interested in the mathematics behind these events. We assume here that the Sun, the Earth and the Moon are just points. Thus we do not predict where on Earth eclipses take place, nor whether they are full of partial. But we derive some interesting results, such as

Guest blog by Rob Kabacoff. Rob is Professor of Quantitative Analytics at Wesleyan University.
R is an elegant and comprehensive statistical and graphical programming language. Unfortunately, it can also have a steep learning curve. I created this website for both current R users, and experienced users of other statistical packages (e.g., SAS, SPSS, Stata) who…Continue
