The model-free, data-driven technique discussed here is so basic that it can easily be implemented in Excel, and we actually provide an Excel implementation. It is surprising that this technique does not pre-date standard linear regression, and is rarely if ever used by statisticians and data scientists. It is related to kriging and nearest neighbor interpolation, and apparently first mentioned in 1965 by Harvard scientists working on GIS (geographic information systems). It was referred…Continue

I’ve been reading the interesting and soul-searching (from a data scientist perspective) book from Cathy O’Neil titled “Weapons of Math Destruction”, or WMD as used in the book. The book provides several real-world examples of how Big Data and Data Science – when not properly structured – can lead to ethically-wrong unintended consequences.

Being an expert at developing and understanding ML, or Machine Learning algorithms, takes time and a lot of hard work. That’s why ML (machine learning) engineers are been seen constantly learning while at the job. If the learning stops, your professional growth stops. Many of us, especially the AI aspirants, think that watching tutorial videos on AI (artificial intelligence) modeling or ML algorithm development on YouTube…Continue

Summary: Some industries are a clear slam-dunk for AI/ML applications and some less so. The legal, regulatory, and compliance businesses (law firms, internal legal departments, and the contract review and regulatory compliance departments of heavily regulated industries) fall in this last category. This is a review of seven companies found by TopBots to be successful; pointing to opportunities others can follow.

Over the years, I've had people ask me how a taxonomy differs from an ontology. The answer (or at least a reasonably simple answer) is that "a taxonomy is a tree shaped ontology".
It is worth digging bit deeper to understand what that means, however:
Way back in the early 18th century, a Swedish biologist by the name of Carl Linnaeus…Continue

The varying needs of patients and the growing need for better management of healthcare have driven companies to look for answers and help from technology. Suffice it to say that technology answered the call and how! While there are plenty of technology-driven resources that offer quality help. None has proven to be quite as potent as the Internet of Things, which is essentially a network of devices connected via the internet. In the context of healthcare, it empowers healthcare providers…Continue

I was recently invited to judge a Data Science competition. The students were given the ‘heart disease prediction’ dataset, perhaps an improvised version of the one available on Kaggle. I had seen this dataset…Continue
After a few biostatistics classes, I began fitting my first logistic regression model using my physician friend’s data on tumors excised from skin cancer patients. I realized that although we were very clear about the dependent variable we were trying to predict – a certain feature of the tumor – I really did not know how to pick the independent…Continue
