This week, we continue the parallel themes of deep learning and natural language processing. Last week I mentioned some papers that use deep learning for NLP. In deep learning, these tasks are modeled as a prediction problem, which is why such an extensive training set is required. I think it's important to remember this amongst the flurry of sensationalist headlines around deep learning. While I…Continue

In a recent interview on WGN, Bob Mariano, the CEO of Roundy’s was asked the question “What makes a great grocery store?” His response focused on customer care: “A great grocery store is made up of great people that care about their customers and go out of their way to make them feel appreciated.” Today, Mariano’s competes against global companies like Trader Joes and others and plans to merge with The Kroger Company in late 2015. But they still regard themselves as…Continue

This was the subject of a question asked on Quora: What are the top 10 data mining or machine learning algorithms?
Some modern algorithms such as collaborative filtering, recommendation engine, segmentation, or attribution modeling, are missing from the lists below. Algorithms from graph theory (to find the shortest path in a graph, or to detect connected components),…Continue
“Billions and billions…”
It’s a phrase made famous by physicist Carl Sagan on his popular Cosmos TV show, and he was referring to the number of stars in our universe.
But it could also easily be applied to the bits of data NASA is collecting about that same universe.
It’s a daunting task — and with its dozens of missions and hundreds of scientists taken together, it may constitute the biggest big data project ever undertaken.…Continue

Big Data has been around, in one form or another, for quite some time. In fact, it even pre-dates computers, if you can believe such a thing! The reason all the Big Data hype is because advances in computers, the Internet, wireless networking, and the cloud have combined to really bring out the best in Big Data. It's through all of the innovations of the past two decades that the extent of Big Data's true potential is finally being realized.
Naturally, there are still questions and…Continue
Data conversion, translation, and mapping is by no means rocket science, but it is by all means tedious. Even a simple data conversion task (e.g., reading a CSV file into a list of class instances) can require a non-trivial amount of code. While all of these tasks share much in common, they are all “just different enough” to require their own data conversion methods.
In virtually every system that we build, we will at some point find ourselves…Continue
