Does "All models are wrong, but some are useful" quote apply to Machine learning models?

Models are simplification or approximation of reality and hence they will not capture all of reality. “All models are wrong, but some are useful” is a famous quote by George Edward Pelham Box (1919–2013). George Box was a British mathematician and professor of statistics at the University of Wisconsin. Statisticians develop theoretical models to predict the behaviour of certain process. The meaning of this quote is that every single model will be wrong and it never represents the exact…

Kubernetes in 10 minutes

Kubernetes is a technology that allows us to isolate an application. That is good but how can we scale this? Of course, we should create new containers.

Data Science: Do We Really Need Math?

It is sometimes said that you don't need to know math to be a data scientist. Sometimes the opposite is said, after all, data science is supposed to be a science! Regardless, below are a few of my articles featuring how data science and math can benefit from each other - not just math to solve data science problems, but also data science to solve math problems.

Articles…

Why the Concept of “Citizen Data Scientist” Terrifies Me

Imagine this scenario:

You enter your dentist’s office as a follow-up visit to the 6-month checkup you had last week. You’re nervous because the checkup revealed bleeding in your gums and cracks in your fillings, all things that require your dentist’s repair on this occasion.

So, you’re there nervously fidgeting in the lobby waiting for your name to be called, envisioning all sorts of dentistry implements of torture that will soon be…

So which is better for portfolio optimization, a NISQ Quantum Computer, or Fujitsu's "quantum inspired digital annealer"?

Quantum computers come in 2 varieties, quantum annealers and quantum gate models. So far, DWave is the only company selling quantum annealers.

A third type of device is now available from Fujitsu. Fujitsu calls its device a "quantum inspired digital annealer". The Fujitsu device does not have any quantum correlation (quantum entanglement)…

How Can Companies Get The Most Value Out Of Their Data

Having spent the better part of the last decade helping organisations in the U.S. and the U.K. use data to drive profit, efficiency, and performance improvements, I thought it would be helpful to jot down best practices for organizations that are looking to get the most value out of their enterprise-level financial and operational data sets.

Every organisation entering the roaring 20s knows that they must use their data as a strategic differentiator to gain a competitive advantage and…

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…

Key Graph Based Shortest Path Algorithms With Illustrations - Part 1: Dijkstra's And Bellman-Ford Algorithms

While many of the programming libraries encapsulate the inner working details of graph and other algorithms, as a data scientist it helps a lot having a reasonably good familiarity of such details.  A solid understanding of the intuition behind such algorithms not only helps in appreciating the logic behind them but also helps in making conscious decisions about their applicability in real life cases.  There are several graph based algorithms and most notable are the shortest path…

2020 Challenge: Unlearn to Change Your Frame

Maybe the biggest challenge we face as a society is our ability to unlearn – to let go of – outdated concepts and beliefs in order to adopt new approaches. Our everyday lives are dominated by outdated concepts: change the oil every 3,000 miles, don’t wear white before Memorial Day, only senior management has the best ideas, don’t eat dessert until you’ve cleaned your plate, trade wars are easy to win, leeches work wonders on headaches, etc.

Well, I’m going to throw down the gauntlet…
