Importance of Big Data Analytics Tool: Hadoop

Hadoop is an open-source framework that stores and process big data in a distributed environment using simple programming models. It is designed to scale up from single servers to thousands of machines, while each offers local computation and storage. Hadoop divides a file into blocks and stores across a cluster of machines. It achieves fault tolerance by replicating the blocks on a cluster.

Hadoop can be used as a flexible and easy way for the distributed processing of large…

Visually Explained: How Can Executives Make Sense of Machine Learning & Deep Learning?

Many executives struggle to make sense of machine learning (ML) and deep learning (DL). Having a pragmatic relationship with technology, executives need to know on a very fundamental level: "What problems do ML & DL try to solve?" A simple, high-level answer to that question is: "It's all about building systems that do certain things better than humans, with as little intervention by humans as possible." That being said, the simplest way to distinguish between ML and its branch DL…

Fun with maps: Part 1

I love maps. It’s not just a nerdy thing. Map are very helpful visualization tools for a lot of questions from business. Of course, there are number of standard BI tools which can produce maps as well, like Tableau. My experience is that the coded ones offer more customization options. Especially when it comes to destinations/cities/villages, which are not big (or well-known) or when the data is not "very" clean (e.g. same city written in a different way), if you have to preprocess data at…

Blog: Descriptive Versus Predictive Analytics

Generally speaking descriptive analytics is the process of making some sense or adding some structure to a data set, which at times can be very large. For this reason, most discussions referring to “analytics” in business are actually talking about descriptive analytics (Bertolucci, 2013). The most obvious example is when we run descriptive statistics at the beginning of a study, and look at things like the range, mean, median, quartiles, skew and kurtosis.…

Why including effect size and knowing your statistical power are important

I’m unsure if it is a common misconception, but I know I used to believe that the only thing needed to present findings from statistical analysis was a P-value less than the chosen alpha; that if there was evidence to reject the null hypothesis it could be concluded that a meaningful discovery had been made. What I learned during the Mod 3 project is that statistical significance is not indicative of a substantive significance in what is being measured or compared. In order to determine the…

Recessions, Big Data, Data Science and Liberating Power of “Own It”

There, I said it.  I said the “R” word.  And no, I’m not talking the political “R” word.  I’m talking about the potential of a… r-e-c-e-s-s-i-o-n.  There are many indicators pointing to the potential of a worldwide recession, and unfortunately during a recession, many organizations hunker down, cut spending, and try to ride it out – all the wrong things to do if you want to actually avoid a recession.…
