You Had an Ongoing Data Breach for Months. How Could You Not Know?

When Anthem first announced the breach of 80 million of its records, FBI spokespersons credited Anthem with responding only weeks after the attack started.

Soon after, Brian Krebs, who blogs at KrebsOnSecurity, uncovered evidence that the attack might have started much earlier.

Why does it take so long for companies like Anthem to discover data breaches in progress and even longer to tell consumers?

Although the answer to that question remains complicated, one truth is…

Labeling with Active Learning

The Ugly Truth Behind All That Data

We are in the age of data. In recent years, many companies have already started collecting large amounts of data about their business. On the other hand, many companies are just starting now. If you are working in one of these companies, you might be wondering what can be done with all that data.

Extreme Events Modeling Using Continued Fractions

Continued fractions are usually considered as a beautiful, curious mathematical topic, but with applications mostly theoretical and limited to math and number theory. Here we show how it can be used in applied business and economics contexts, leveraging the mathematical theory developed for continued fraction, to model and explain natural phenomena. 

The interest in this project started when analyzing sequences such as x(n) = { nq } = nq -…

What is Explainable AI and Why is it Needed?

Imagine an advanced fighter aircraft is patrolling a hostile conflict area and a bogie suddenly appears on radar accelerating aggressively at them. The pilot, with the assistance of an Artificial Intelligence co-pilot, has a fraction of a second to decide what action to take – ignore, avoid, flee, bluff, or attack.  The costs associated with False Positive and False Negative are substantial – a wrong decision that could potentially provoke a war or lead to the death…

Building new worlds with data science

 By the time I graduated university four years ago, I  sensed that maybe I had missed out on something by not fitting any computer science or coding courses into my schedule. 

Computer Science: two words that still held every ounce of mystery when I received my diploma as they had when I first met a few of the guys who lived down…

One Way vs Two Way ANOVA + Factorial ANOVA: A Comparison in one Picture

ANOVA is a test to see if there are differences between groups. Put simply, "One-way" or "two-way" refers to the number of independent variables (IVs) in your test. However, there are other subtle differences between the tests, and the more general factorial ANOVA. This picture sums up the differences.…

Drive Better Outcomes by Combining the Strengths of Data and CX

At first glance, data science and customer experience (CX) don’t have much in common.

Data scientists like me are typical left-brained thinkers: detail-oriented, logical and quantitative. We want to study, process and analyze data to extract insights from it. Customer experience experts, on the other hand, gravitate toward a more intuitive and creative…

A Strange Family of Statistical Distributions

I introduce here a family of very peculiar statistical distributions governed by two parameters: p, a real number in [0, 1], and b, an integer > 1. These distributions were discovered by solving the following functional equation, corresponding to b = 2. 

Here f(x) is the density attached to that…

Untapped Economic Assets? How to Monetize Your Dark Data

What if you had a corporate asset that was never used?  Your first response might be that corporate asset obviously has no value.  And you’d probably be right. However, there are costs – acquisition costs, maintenance costs, storage costs, depreciation costs, salvage costs – associated with all assets. So, to incur all of those costs and then not do anything with that asset would be fiduciary negligence at its worse. 

Welcome to the world of dark…
