Bar Chart vs Column Chart vs Histogram

  • Column charts, bar charts and histograms appeal to a wide audience.
  • Each chart has distinct differences.
  • Specific circumstances for when you should use each type.

In an article I posted last week, How to Choose the Right Graph for Your Data (In One Picture),…

When Should a Machine Learning Model Be Retrained?

A few years ago, it was extremely uncommon to retrain a machine learning model with new observations systematically. This was mostly because the model retraining tasks were laborious and cumbersome, but machine learning has come a long way in a short time. Things have changed with the adoption of more sophisticated MLOps solutions.

Now, the…

PCA Image Compression Using R Shiny App

PCA is mathematically defined as an orthogonal linear transformation that transforms the data to a new coordinate system such that the greatest variance by some projection of the data comes to lie on the first coordinate (called the first principal component), the second greatest variance on the second coordinate, and so on. In other words, we convert a set of observations of possibly correlated variables into a set of values of linearly uncorrelated variables called principal components. To…

If Data Scientist is the Modern-Day Alchemist, Then Why are We Using Leeches to Monetize Data?

Okay, I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore! If data scientists are the modern-day alchemist who turn data into gold, then why are so many companies using leeches to monetize their data?

When I talk to companies about the concept of a “Chief Data Monetization Officer” role, many of them look at me like I…

The Evolution of DevOps in 2021 Puts Automation At The Center

Question 1 : So, let’s start with the obvious question. What is DevOps and why is it inevitable for today’s businesses to adopt?

Answer : DevOps at the end of the day, if you look at it from a higher level, it is really the automation of agile, a better way to perform application design, development and deployment. This is far superior…

Covid-19: My Predictions for 2021

Here I share my predictions as well as personal opinion about the pandemic. My thoughts are not derived from running sophisticated models on vast amounts of data. Much of the data available has major issues anyway, something I am also about to discuss. There are some bad news and some good news. This article discusses what I believe are the good news and bad news, as well a some attempt at explaining people behavior and reactions, and resulting consequences. My opinion is very different from…

RPG Playing Cards Come To Life In Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality is beginning to push the paradigms of previous expectations as the ability to recognize cards by appearance and orientation opens up the possibility of a new kind of gaming. The use of "magical" proxies to position 3D animations coupled with autonomous agent awareness opens up the possibility of card games with armies attacking…

How to Build a Customer-Centric Supply Chain

The pandemic has shown how vulnerable our supply chains are. A small interruption can bring a supply chain to a halt, which in today’s fast-paced world, is simply not acceptable. Customers are always expecting their product to arrive on time when ordered, and any delay in the…

Network Graph Visualizations with DOT

Network graphs play a large part in both computing and data science, and they are essential for working with (and visualizing) both semantic graphs and property graphs. Nearly thirty years ago, AT&T produced a set of libraries called graphviz which were…

Causal AI Kaggle Competition, Hosted by Big Pharma

Recently, someone (not me) suggested in a tweet to Judea Pearl, let's have a Kaggle** competition on the topic of Causal AI. I love the idea, so I am trying to promote it with this blog post. Big Pharma could fund such a competition for much less than what they pay for a TV commercial, and the technical insights they might gain from this exercise might prove to be invaluable to the pharmaceutical industry.…

When Daphne Koller met Judea Pearl. When Feynman met Dirac. When The Beatles met Bob Dylan.

Daphne Koller is the leader of a mega-startup (Insitro) that uses Machine Learning (do they use Causal Bayesian Networks???) to do drug research. She also co-founded Coursera with Andrew Ng, and she co-wrote with  Nir Friedman a 1200 page book about Probabilistic Graphical Models (e.g., Bayesian Networks)

Judea Pearl won a Turing award (commonly…

What are Recurrent Neural Networks

Humans don’t start their thinking from scratch every second. As you read this essay, you understand each word based on your understanding of previous words. You don’t throw everything away and start thinking from scratch again. Your thoughts have persistence.

Traditional neural networks can’t do…

What Are Citizen Data Scientists and Can They Improve the Quality of Business Intelligence?

Citizen Data Scientists represent a new breed of business analysts – a group of individuals with diverse business responsibilities and training, who wield sophisticated analytical tools, and employ complex methods of analysis to improve business results – all without the training or assistance of data scientists or IT team members. Citizen Data Scientists are business users who leverage the knowledge…

Human Decision-making in a Big Data World

This blog was originally written in 2012, and am republishing it because with the increased use of black box AI / ML models to power key operational decisions, these human decision-making traps need to be thoroughly and holistically addressed during the analytics definition stage to avoid the dangers of unintended consequences.


Organizations are looking to integrate big data and advanced analytics into their business operations in order to become more…

How to Choose the Right Graph for Your Data (In One Picture)

  • Choosing the right graph depends largely on your audience.
  • Dozens of graphs fit various data types.
  • While software can help with the design, you still have to choose a graph.
  • A flow chart to help with the decision.

Choosing the best graph for your data poses a challenge. Even if you get a program to do the hard work for you, you still have to make a choice between dozens of potential…

The Four Stages of Robotic Process Automation (RPA)

“Robotic process automation is not a physical [or] mechanical robot,” says Chris Huff, chief strategy officer at Kofax. In fact, there is no presence or involvement of any robots in the automation software, as its name says.

RPA or Robotic Process Automation is an amalgamation of three factors:

  • Robotic –…

Artificial intelligence – the Tool to Promote Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity and inclusion (D&I) increasingly are becoming a focus area for businesses. And it is not just because it is the right thing to do, but it also makes excellent business sense. According to McKinsey, the top quarter of companies on the diversity list were 33 percent more likely to be among the most profitable in their…
