"The road to machine learning starts with Regression. Are you ready?"
If you are aspiring to become a data scientist, regression is the first algorithm you need to
learnmaster. Not just to clear job interviews, but to solve real world problems. Till today, a lot of consultancy firms continue to use regression techniques at a larger scale to…

In five short years the world of analytics has changed immeasurably. Five years ago Hadoop was reaching the peak of the hype cycle and it acted as a wake-up call to businesses that perhaps there is value in their data.
This evolved more recently into big data analytics. Although Hadoop opened a door to big data, it wasn’t actually the right tool for what most businesses needed – fast analytics, interactive experimentation with data and exploratory analysis of…Continue

One of the major selling points of collocating a business’ servers in a data center is the reduced energy consumption. Small businesses have long been sold on the idea of reducing the in-house power resources necessary to operate the network, which in many cases had moved well beyond a simple server on someone’s desk to a dedicated space requiring a specialized HVAC system…Continue
Data analytics is a mature discipline at this point, and even those outside the data science world generally understand what it’s all about. Modern data science, however, is still new enough to spur questions. Vincent Glanville, Executive Data Scientist at Data Science Central, spoke with Roy Wilds, Chief Data Scientist from PHEMI, a Vancouver-based big data startup, about the best way to educate people…Continue

In this article, we revisit the most fundamental statistics theorem, talking in layman terms. We investigate a special but interesting and useful case, which is not discussed in textbooks, data camps, or data science classes. This article is part of a series about off-the-beaten-path data science and mathematics, offering a fresh, original and simple perspective on a number of topics. Previous articles in this series can be found…Continue
Summary: AI and predictive analytics are now so prevalent in our day-to-day lives that it has raised the attention of the government, particularly about how certain groups might be adversely impacted. As data scientists we naturally want to have free reign to let the data speak as best it can, but as this report from the White House shows, we need to be prepared for some push back.
The last 10 years have been glorious days for data science and…Continue

This article was posted by Adrian Sampson on his own blog. Adrian is an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at Cornell University, where here is also part of the Computer Systems Laboratory.
Computer scientists in systemsy fields, myself included, aren’t great at using statistics. Maybe it’s because there are so many other potential…Continue
Reddit is now at the center of this attack that impacts millions of top domains (most of the Internet) since November 30. While Reddit appears at first glance as the perpetrator, it is actually the victim. This "behind the scene" scheme run from Russia generates huge amounts of fake traffic - as much as 10% of the entire Internet traffic.
It is not caught by Google Analytics, and thus it results in phony web traffic statistic and flawed reports, which is the main issue people are…Continue
Today we are featuring the year’s most interesting breakthroughs in deep learning that we have been fawning over at Grakn Labs. (For those of you who are interested in a crash course in deep learning, here’s a great video by Andrew Ng at Stanford.)…Continue

If you have ever competed in a Kaggle competition, you are probably familiar with the use of combining different predictive models for improved accuracy which will creep your score up in the leader board. While it is widely used, there are only a few resources that I am aware of where a clear description is available (One that I know of is …Continue
