I recently had another client conversation about optimizing their data warehouse and Business Intelligence (BI) environment. The client had lots of pride in their existing data warehouse and business intelligence accomplishments, and rightfully so. The heart of the conversation was about taking costs out of their reporting environments by consolidating runaway data marts and “spreadmarts,” and improving business analyst BI…

I love it when I get feedback from a blog that I’ve written. I appreciate the different perspectives and insights that others bring to a topic of interest.
The section of the blog that fueled the most comments stem from a scene in the movie I, Robot where Detective Spooner (played by Will Smith) is explaining to Doctor Calvin (who is responsible for giving robots human-like behaviors) why he distrusts and hates robots. He is describing an incident…

Binary classification is one of the most frequent studies in applied machine learning problems in various domains, from medicine to biology to meteorology to malware analysis. Many researchers use some performance metrics in their classification studies to report their success. However, the literature has shown a widespread confusion about the terminology and ignorance of the fundamental aspects behind metrics.
In our paper tittled "Binary Classification Performance… Continue

Data, in particular, unstructured data has been growing at a very fast pace since mid-2000’s. Eighty percent of all data generated is unstructured multimedia content which fails to get focus in organizations’ big data initiatives. A good portion of this multimedia content is images and videos. Readily available smart wireless devices along with the rising popularity… Continue

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

Abstract – Big data helps to make strategy for future and understand user behaviors. In 1959, Arther Samuel gave very simple definition of Machine Learning as “a Field of study that gives computer the ability to learn without being explicitly programmed”. Now almost after 58 years from then we still have not progressed much beyond this definition if we compare the progress we made in other areas from same time. The idea of FinTech adopting some best practices from the Big… Continue
