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.…Continue

The importance of completeness of linear regressions is an often-discussed issue. By leaving out relevant variables the coefficients might be inconsistent.
But why on earth?!
Assuming a linear complete model of the form:
z = a + bx + cy + ε.
Where z is supposed to be dependent, x and y are independent and ε is the error term.
Now we drop y to check…Continue

Summary: Booz Allen just launched a one-stop shop for all manner of pretested DNN models. They’re even guaranteeing price. This makes buying just like picking accounting, CRM, or HRIS software. Equally as important, it’s a genius example of platform strategy to lock in customers and lock out competitors.
Programming languages are a tool for the realization of many powerful data science applications. But, there are so many of them and it has become confusing to choose the optimal one for your specific project. In this article, we are going to talk about popular languages for…Continue

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning solutions offer large possibilities to optimize and automate processes, save costs and make less human error possible for many industries. Food and Beverage is not an exception, where it can be beneficially applied in restaurants, bar and cafe businesses as well as in food manufacturing. These two segments have common use cases where AI in the food industry can be applied, as well as different ones, which is linked to different…Continue

One of the biggest threats to our world economy (outside of climate change, social inequality, unregulated proliferation of weapons and the rise of Terminators), is the retirement of the technician and engineering expertise that is necessary to keep our factories, hospitals, cities, trains, airports and other operational entities running effectively. Deloitte’s 2018 skills gap in manufacturing study found that the skills gap may leave an estimated 2.4 million positions unfilled…Continue

Artificial Intelligence – Cloud and Edge implementations takes an engineering-led approach for the deployment of AI to Edge devices within the framework of the cloud.
We often use the word ‘engineering’ in casual conversation. However, in this context, we attach a specific meaning to Engineering. Engineering is the use of scientific principles to design and build machines, structures, and other items, including bridges, tunnels, roads, vehicles, and…Continue
A few years ago I took a call from an analyst at a hedge fund who was looking for external data that would, in his words, provide “alpha.” I explained that our company was connected to thousands of data sources and hundreds of thousands of public datasets; I told him that we were continuously pulling in open data from 70 countries, standardizing it through an ingestion pipeline trained against the largest catalogue of public data in the world, and serving it up…Continue

In the times when data is of extreme value, industries cannot afford to ignore it. The only right choice for them is to find new ways to use data for their benefit.
These words have become a motto for the sales industry along with the others. As far as the feature of the…Continue
If X(1), X(2), ..., X(n) are independent random variables, not necessarily with the same distribution, what is the variance of Z = X(1) X(2) ... X(n)? It turns out that the computation is very simple:
In particular, if all the expectations are zero, then the…Continue

“The first thing you need to do is get all the data in the same place”. We all remember the mantra that launched a thousand painful IT projects. The argument was that this would enable a “360-degree view of the…Continue

Designing an application is not a child's play in any sense and developing an enhanced user experience for the same is quite a task at hand. For this matter, there are numerous approaches adopted by developers and enterprises to design better application and its interface to transform the entire user experience.
User interface is the gateway of users to your application, a rather common point of…Continue

How should an estimator be chosen? The academic training of economists and finance professionals has traditionally favored the minimum variance unbiased estimator (MVUE). Sometimes, the maximum likelihood estimator (MLE) is chosen. From time to time, the method of moments (MOM) or the generalized method of moments (GMM) is used. Because of its subjective nature, Bayesian methods are rarely used.
The problem with this hierarchy is that it is preference-based and ignores…Continue
