DML stands for “Dynamical Machine Learning” (more in the book, “SYSTEMS Analytics for IoT Data Science”, 2017). This match is not surprising once you realize that DML & IoT are both based on the venerable Systems Theory. Let us dig deeper . . .
Consider IoT for industrial applications. A machine is instrumented with sensors, data are collected in real-time (or at intervals), communicated to the cloud where IoT Data Science…Continue

As a new sub-discipline of Data Science, I notice that SYSTEMS Analytics is starting to get some traction! There are a couple of Analytics graduate level programs with *Systems* in its title (Stevens Institute of Technology and University of North Carolina are the only ones I know). Web search brings up NO books on *Systems* Analytics. With the publication of my book with *Systems* in the title, that gap has been filled now! “…Continue
Machine Learning today tends to be “open-loop” – collect tons of data offline, process them in batches and generate insights for eventual action. There is an emerging category of ML business use cases that are called “In-Stream Analytics (ISA)”. Here, the data is processed as soon as it arrives and insights are generated quickly. However, action may be taken offline and the effects of the actions are not immediately incorporated back into the learning process. If we did, it is an…Continue

ISVs are commonplace in software and technology business. Per Wikipedia, an independent software vendor (ISV) is an organization specializing in making software, designed for mass or niche markets. This is in contrast to software developed for in-house use only within an organization or software designed or adapted for a single, specific…Continue

An insightful person once said, “Prediction is like driving your car forward by looking only at the rearview mirror!”. If the road is dead-straight, you are good . . . UNLESS there is a stalled vehicle ahead in the middle of the road.
We should consider short-term and long-term prediction separately. Long-term prediction is nearly a lost cause. In the 80’s and 90’s, chaos and complexity theorists showed us that things can spin out of control even when we have perfect…Continue
