Machine Learning : Real World Applications

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…

How State Governments Can Protect and Win with Big Data, AI and Privacy

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 Isn’t a Thing; Big Data is a State of Mind

“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…

Lessons in Becoming an Effective Data Scientist

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…

Image Processing and Neural Networks Intuition: Part 1

In this series, I will talk about training a simple neural network on image data. To give a brief overview, neural networks is a kind of supervised learning. By this I mean, the model needs to train on historical data to understand the relationship between input variables and target variables. Once trained, the model can be used to predict target variable on new input data. In the previous posts, we have written about linear, lasso and ridge regression. All those methods come under…

What Makes Libratus the Best Poker Player in the World?

Libratus, the artificial intelligence (AI) engine designed by Professor Tuomas Sandholm at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) and his graduate student Noam Brown has made an impression on Jason Les, one of the world’s top poker players. Poker News, the poker industry’s online news magazine, recently interviewed Les. A couple questions were telling when asked about which is a better name for his firstborn child and which is the more annoying opponent, Claudico or Libratus. For both questions,…

From social media to public health surveillance: Word embedding based clustering method for twitter classification

Social media provide a low-cost alternative source for public health surveillance and health-related classification plays an important role to identify useful information. We summarized the recent classification methods using social media in public health. These methods rely on bag-of-words (BOW) model and have difficulty grasping the semantic meaning of texts. Unlike these methods, we present a word embedding based clustering method. Word embedding is one of the strongest trends in Natural…

Optimization techniques: Finding maxima and minima

In the last post, we talked about how to estimate the coefficients or weights of linear regression. We estimated weights which give the minimum error. Essentially it is an optimization problem where we have to find the minimum error(cost) and the corresponding coefficients. In a way, all supervised learning algorithms have optimization at the crux of it where…
