Excel is often poorly regarded as a platform for regression analysis. The regression add-in in its Analysis Toolpak has not changed since it was introduced in 1995, and it was a flawed design even back then. (See this link for a discussion.) That’s unfortunate, because an Excel file can be a very good place in which to build regression models, compare and refine them, create…Continue

One of my most memorable experiences during my college years was having an English professor who spoke entirely in complete sentences.There were no spoken sentence fragments, dangling thoughts or misuse of adjectives, verbs or nouns. When I first met him, I was stunned at his level of commitment to this principle. I often wondered how challenging this must be for him and whether or not the…Continue

Ecommerce sites generate tons of web server log data which can provide valuable insights through analysis. For example, if we know which users are more likely to buy a product, we can perform targeted marketing, improve relevant product placement on our site and lift conversion rates. However, raw web logs are often enormous and messy so preparing the data to train a predictive model is time consuming for data scientists.…

A neural network is a series of algorithms that aims to identify underlying relationships in a set of data through a process that is similar to the way the human brain functions.
Keras is an open-source library written in Python for advancing and evaluating deep learning models. It enables you to define and train neural network models in a few lines of code. In this post, we will learn how to build a neural network using…Continue

Those of us who were data science practitioners before the ubiquity of buzz words like “Fourth Industrial Revolution”, remember a time when data science was being described as “utter hubris” by some of the worlds leading quants. All these buzz words, coupled with misplaced applications of data science have turned it into a fairly nebulous concept. Which is a problem.
In facilitating my data science workshops I've realized there are two main groups of audiences and learners.…
When trying to implement informed business solutions, what you see is all there is (WYSIATI), which can result in being “data-nearsighted.” For this reason, it is crucial to have a comprehensive data strategy in order to make better business decisions and implement efficient business solutions…Continue

I want to apologize to my small audience for being so long in waiting to post a blog post. My goal had been one per week, but life intervened in the meantime. While I have tried to be productive, the blog post fell by the wayside.
I did write a couple of short stories, I must confess. I wrote How to Engage in Counterespionage Operations Against Ghosts because I grew up watching Sherlock Holmes movies and the Twilight Zone. I wrote a small set of short stories…Continue

In “Importance of Thinking Differently…Hint: Don’t Pave the Cow Path”, I introduced the concept of the “3 Horizons of Digital Transformation.” I wanted to provide a framework that helped organizations differentiate between “Digitalization” versus “Digital Transformation”. Unfortunately, in succeeding client engagements, I realized I did a crappy job of explaining these 3…Continue
