Data is growing at an unimaginable speed. Data has been and will be the most crucial driving factors behind day-to-day activities that we carry out. As we talk, tons and tons of data---in exabytes is being added and processed each day, making it difficult to handle such an astronomical amount. There lies one major difficulty in handling such large amount of data. Since the volume is increasing rapidly in comparison to the computing resources, we find it… Continue

I started my career as an Oracle database developer and administrator back in 1998. Over the past 20+ years, it has been amazing to see how IT has been evolving to handle the ever growing amount of data, via technologies including relational OLTP (Online Transactional Processing) database, data warehouse, ETL (Extraction, Transformation and Loading) and OLAP (Online Analytical Processing) reporting, big data and now AI, Cloud and IoT. All these technologies were enabled by the rapid…

“Information is the oil of 21st century and analytics is the combustion engine” ~ Gartner
Big data is the new oil and there’s no denying to this fact. In certain ways the analogy fits, it is easy to draw attention about how information (data) is used to power much of the transformative technology that we see today such as predictive analysis, automation and artificial intelligence etc.
As technology move… Continue

Every business challenge that is to be solved with a data-driven decision has a data universe behind it. This data universe is the set of data that could be captured that is linked to the business challenge.
A data universe is formed by information and noise: Information is data that can be transformed into knowledge; noise is data from which no… Continue

Imagine that one day, you see people are queuing up in front of Bank A; so you ask the staff at the counter, you are told that they are offering anyone (regardless of their credit history) a loan of $100,000 at a fixed annual rate at 2%. You then look around, the Bank B next door offers 1-year term deposit with a fixed annual rate at 3% for the same amount ($100,000). After 5 minutes' waiting, you sign for the loan from Bank… Continue

This blog is to give brief introduction about Hadoop for those who know next to nothing about this technology. Big Data is at the foundation of all the megatrends that are happening today, from social to the cloud to mobile devices to gaming. This blog will help to build the foundation to take the next step in learning this interesting technology. Let's get started:
1. What's Big Data?
Ever since… Continue

Technology changes on the daily basis transforming the rules like never before. Something that looked modern and fresh yesterday can appear dated seemingly overnight, and trends once dismissed as irrevocably passé can unexpectedly cycle back in vogue.
Over the past few years, AI, Big Data, and such disruptive technologies have succeeded in transforming many industries already but a notable and a positive change noticeable is in the travel sector. Maybe because travel industries… Continue

Many predict, and warn, that the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Revolution will change the world – and possibly the very essence of mankind. But society-changing revolutions are not new. History is full of such revolutions. What can we learn from those previous revolutions that might provide an indication as to how this AI revolution might play out?
We will examine two other revolutions – the Industrial Revolution and the Information Revolution… Continue

The performance of the neural network improves with an increasing volume of training data. With more and more devices generating data that can potentially be used for training and model generation, the models are getting better at generalizing the stochastic environment and handling complex tasks. However, with more data and more complex structures for the deep neural networks, the computational requirements increase.
Even though we have started leveraging GPUs for deep neural network… Continue

I was recently asked to conduct a 2-hour workshop for the State of California Senior Legislators on the topic of “Big Data, Artificial Intelligence and Privacy.” Honored by the privilege of offering my perspective on these critical topics, I shared with my home-state legislators how significant opportunities await the state. I reviewed the once-in-a-generation opportunities awaiting the great State of California (“the State”), where decision makers could vastly…

Today I'm writing this post to explain how it's possible to make geographic analysis and answer questions like: which is the richest area in my city? How many people do live in one neighborhood?
You can do it combining shape files with an excel spreadsheet, let's understand it together...
First of all, we need to install one Geographic Information System (GIS), and I recommend QGIS - free and open source GIS
