Data scientist was coined the sexiest job of the 21st century and with good reason. In LinkedIn 2020 Emerging Jobs Reports, Artificial intelligence was named the ‘Jobs of Tomorrow’ due to its strong presence. Furthermore, the potential application of data science in multiple industries has attracted people from all…Continue
At time of crisis, everyone is scrambling for the latest news for signals of changes and make decisions to mitigate risk. Average person uses common sense to draw inference on relevancy. For example, as the Coronavirus Crisis evolves, many decided to hog up bathroom tissue. As much as it is common sense for many, it simply does not make sense. However, when it is evaluated against aggregated common sense, we can eliminate many of these signals.
In financial modeling, analyst…Continue

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…Continue
Summary: Mid-career switching into data science is difficult. But if you already have substantial data base experience becoming a Data Engineer can be a great career by itself, or even the first stepping stone to becoming a Data Scientist.

As I write this blog, we are still in the early stages of the coronavirus crisis. It is a scary situation which has caused hoarding, panic, fake news, lies, stock market turmoil and irrational behaviors. All indications suggest we will survive this crisis, but it is truly not one of mankind’s best moments.
But learnings abound in…Continue

If you have learned temporal parallelism used to speed up CPU execution, you came across instruction pipelines aka pipeline processing. In pipeline processing, you will have many instructions in different stages of execution. The term "Data Pipeline" is a misnomer representing a high bandwidth communication channel used for data transportation between a source system and a destination. In certain cases the destination is called a sink. Pipelines by definition allow flow of a fluid…Continue

Python is one of the powerful, high-level, easy to learn programming language that provides a huge number of applications. Some of its features, such as being object-oriented and open source, having numerous IDE’s, etc. make it one of the most in-demand programming languages of the…Continue
Today, Google published the following paper:
TensorFlow Quantum: A Software Framework for Quantum Machine Learning,
TensorFlow Quantum is software for doing Quantum Bayesian Networks. QB nets have been a dream of mine for 24 years, although Google's paper, despite having 20 authors and 129 references, never cites any of my work. When I first had the idea of Quantum Bayesian Networks, I thought it was such a cool idea that, within a span of a year, I published…Continue
In my previous post, I introduced the ELAINE Community Tool that can be used to discover variables from textual communications.
Statistical predictors work well for charting the course of economic activities based on macro factors that elicit supply and demand if the market environment is within a close proximity of a pattern that resembles previous economic cycles. Unfortunately, in today’s geo-political environment, many of these new variables are injecting forces that…Continue
