Having my newsfeed cluttered with articles about Google creating an AI that beats hospitals by predicting death with 95% accuracy (or some other erroneous claim), I dug up the original research paper to fact check this wondrous new advancement. Many of said articles used this quote from the abstract (academia's equivalent of a paperback blurb):

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

During my first project in McKinsey in 2011, I served the CEO of a bank regarding his small business strategy. I wanted to run a linear regression on the bank's data but my boss told me: "Don't do it. They don't understand statistics". (We did not use Machine Learning but, 7 years down the road, I still believe we developed the right… Continue

One of the most important developments in the world of technology has been machine learning. It is a comprehensive set of data algorithms and code, pumped into an application or software that automatically makes changes based on trial and error with human interaction.
To put it briefly, machine learning is the machine's ability to understand reactions and engagements made on their software to adjust its algorithm to produce the best result automatically. Machine learning is taking… Continue

I had a new talk presented at "Codemotion Amsterdam 2018" this week. I discussed the relation of Apache Kafka and Machine Learning to build a Machine Learning infrastructure for extreme scale.
Long version of the title:
"Deep Learning at Extreme Scale (in the Cloud)
with the Apache Kafka Open Source Ecosystem - How to Build a Machine Learning Infrastructure with Kafka, Connect, Streams, KSQL, etc."
As always, I want to share the slide deck. The talk was… Continue

Clear up the confusion of how all-encompassing terms like artificial intelligence, machine learning, and deep learning differ.
Machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) are all the rage these days — but with all the buzzwords swirling around them, it's easy to get lost and not see the difference between hype and reality. For example, just because an algorithm is used to calculate information doesn’t mean the label… Continue

Enterprises are learning fast about the relevance and use of AI and Cognitive Computing platforms. Before adopting AI and Cognitive Computing platforms, enterprises must focus on designing the right strategy for their business. A data-driven strategy is very important to derive the maximum benefit from the platform that will help to interpret data and provide accurate… Continue

Stochastic Signal Analysis is a field of science concerned with the processing, modification and analysis of (stochastic) signals.
Anyone with a background in Physics or Engineering knows to some degree about signal analysis techniques, what these technique are and how they can be used to analyze, model and classify signals.
Data Scientists coming from a different fields, like Computer Science or Statistics, might not be aware of the analytical power these techniques bring with… Continue

The mantra for technology evolution has been to replace or minimize human assistance with machines. Traditionally human support systems are rapidly being replaced by machines & by automation. The dependence on human decision-making is shrinking fast. If we take a domestic cooking gas stove as an example, we now have the automated safety gas stove where the gas supply can be cut off completely by itself in case of gas leakage or mishandling, thus avoiding fatal accidents and… Continue

Credit risk or credit default indicates the probability of non-repayment of bank financial services that have been given to the customers. Credit risk has always been an extensively studied area in bank lending decisions. Credit risk plays a crucial role for banks and financial institutions, especially for commercial banks and it is always difficult to interpret and manage. Due to the advancements in technology, banks have managed to reduce the costs, in order to… Continue

As everyone knows Machine learning studies computer algorithms for learning to do stuff. We might, for instance, be interested in learning to complete a task, or to make accurate predictions, or to behave intelligently. The learning that is being done is always based on some sort of observations or data, such as examples…direct experience, or instruction. So in general, machine learning is about learning to do better in the future based on… 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…

“Big Data is dead.” “Big Data is passé.”
“We no longer need Big Data; we need Machine Learning now.”
As we end 2017 and look forward to big (data) things in 2018, the most important lessons of 2017 – in fact, maybe the most important lesson going forward – is that Big Data is NOT a thing. Big Data isn’t about the volume, variety or velocity of data any more than car…

I was recently a guest lecturer at the University of California Berkeley Extension in San Francisco. On a lovely Saturday afternoon, the classroom was crowded with students of all ages learning the tools of the modern economy. The craftspeople of the “Analytics Revolution” were busy learning new skills and tools that will prepare them for this Brave New World of analytics. I was blown away by their dedication!
As we teach the next generation, it’s important…
