Markov Chain Monte Carlo based Bayesian data analysis has now become the method of choice for analyzing and interpreting data in almost all disciplines of science. In astronomy, over the last decade, we have also seen a steady increase in the number of papers that employ Monte Carlo…Continue

Over the years I’ve often been asked by beginners where they should start in statistics, what they should do first, and which parts of statistics they should prioritise to get them to where they want to be (which is usually a higher…Continue

Check out the following paper unveiled last night in ArXiv:
An Open-Source, Industrial-Strength Optimizing Compiler for Quantum Programs, by Robert S. Smith, Eric C. Peterson, Mark G. Skilbeck, Erik J. Davis.
This is an exciting development for me since I have been a proponent and practitioner of the art of quantum compilers for a long time.
The new "optimized quantum compiler" by Rigetti is a computer program that tackles the problem of…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 1963 Benoit Mandelbrot published an article called “The Variation of Certain Speculative Prices.” It is a response to the forming theory that would become Modern Portfolio Theory. Oversimplified, Mandelbrot’s argument could be summarized as “if this is your theory, then this cannot be your data, and this is your data.” This issue has haunted models such as Black-Scholes, the CAPM, the APT and Fama-French. None of them have survived validation tests. Indeed, a good argument can be…Continue

“Limited-Service Restaurants” (LSRs) is how the restaurant industry refers collectively to fast food and fast-casual dining establishments. Marketers who specialize in LSRs often employ marketing research to evaluate hypotheses about their brands or to detect segments within their markets. An important additional purpose of market research is to understand the total structure of a market, to find out what guests consider important…Continue

Reading some recent blogs, I sense a level of angst among Data Science practitioners about the nature of their field. What exactly IS Data Science - a question that seems to lurk just below the surface . . .
As a young field of study and work, it will naturally take time for a definition of Data Science to crystallize. In the meantime, see if this works for you . . .…Continue
