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…

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…

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 designed to generate various types of printed output. Over the years, the library has been adapted for different platforms and roles, and today is still one of the most widely used network graph visualization tools around.

One of…

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…

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…
