3 essential elements for mastering machine learning for 2020

Thomas Edison famously said that success is 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration. That’s nowhere truer than in machine learning. Even though the hype around artificial intelligence has never been higher, the reality of what it takes to actually work in the field - and what it takes to use it successfully - is mired in confusion.

Indeed, hype makes it look like 100% inspiration; it hides the work involved in building knowledge and learning skills.

So, to help tackle that, here…

Schmarzo’s Big, Hairy, Audacious Data Analytics Predictions for 2020

Ah, it’s that time of year when everyone is making predictions about next year and extrapolating from the previous year’s trends to create logical, pragmatic predictions. I’ve already made my own predictions for 2020 in the article, “AI, Analytics, Machine Learning, Data Science, Deep Learning Technology Main Developments in 2019 and Key Trends for 2020,”where I predicted the following

Main 2019 Developments:

  • Growing "consumer proof points" with respect to AI…

Best Degree for Data Science (in One Picture)

If you ask the question "What's the best degree for Data Science?" you'll get dozens of different answers. The sheer amount of different opinions might leave you wondering which degree is the "best", and there isn't a simple answer.  One person's "best" degree is another person's "worst."

Trying to make sense of all those differing opinions? I've done the hard work for you. This is where statistics is actually very useful (and it's one of the popular choices for…

Movies in which our beloved Algorithms show up

For years we have seen artificial intelligence appear in many films and television series, but in recent years is seen in a more remarked, even going further, we talk about Algorithms. Such is the case, that in the last Disney film of the Rompe Ralph series, the character of Yesss appears, representing an Algorithm as we understand it nowadays.

Next, I'll tell you about the films I've seen and there are specific mentions of our world:…
