Tuning Machine Learning Models Using the Caret R Package

Machine learning algorithms are parameterized so that they can be best adapted for a given problem. A difficulty is that configuring an algorithm for a given problem can be a project in and of itself.

Like selecting ‘the best’ algorithm for a problem you cannot know before hand which algorithm parameters will be best for a problem. The best thing to do is to investigate empirically with controlled experiments.

The caret R package was designed to make finding…

Popular Software Skills in Data Science Job postings.

This exercise was done to understand the software skills that are in high demand for Data Science. Analysis was done by extracting the job postings from popular online websites. The findings are interesting. R continues to be the most popular skill, found in 70% of the postings. Python follows as a close second. Surprisingly, in spite all the talk about "Big Data Science", SQL comes up third. This shows that traditional RDBMS still continue to be the base for machine learning work…

Do you know what is bigger than Big Data?

From episode 10 of my Naked Analyst Channel on YouTube.

I think I do - and it is the ‘appification’ of analytics. What I mean by this is the reduction of a complex analytic activity such as market segmentation, down to a single button on your computer interface. Very much like the…

22 Non Statistical Questions for a Statistician

We have always believed that when the world of business collides with the world of math, magic unfolds. As these 2 worlds collide, it also presents a set of unique challenges - bridging the semantic language gap between business and math. Modelling complex business outcomes using math requires an interdisciplinary team consisting of business folks, data folks and math folks. While doing so business folks are always at a loss because a language chasm exists. Math folks love their ”geek…

Big Data: An Understanding

We establish understanding of things in terms of Data or it will be better to say in terms of Big Data, the utilization of things, matters, issues, inventions, surroundings, maps and much more throughout our everyday life cycle, all of which has a certain data type to get input, process and output for us. Sometime we understand these in almost no time as a human, where data is being originated, what are we targeting for and more, and there are times, when some thing might take longer…

Warm-up exercise before data science.

Practicing Data science indeed a long term effort than a learning handful of skills.  We ought to be academically good enough to take up this challenge. However, if you think you came a long way from your academic rebuilding,  but you still have that zeal & passion to take the oil from the data and fill the skill gap of data science then here is the warm-up tips. Below points must exercised before jumping into…

Python Scikit-learn to simplify Machine learning : { Bag of words } To [ TF-IDF ]

Text (word) analysis and tokenized text modeling always give a chill air around ears, specially when you are new to machine learning. Thanks to Python and its extended libraries for its warm support around text analytics and machine learning. Scikit-learn is a savior and excellent support in text processing when you also understand some of the concept like "Bag of word", "Clustering" and "vectorization". Vectorization is  must-to-know technique for all machine leaning learners, text miner…

3 min Healthcare Big Data Video

We have tried to synthesize the most disruptive big data use cases into a compact . 3 Minute video

at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWPUxLr-u9k

 

It covers 6 use cases , 4 healthcare data streams and hopefully sets the stage for curating more use cases in an area which truly needs a lot of healthy transformations !!!

Automatically deskew before machine learning in R

I found it odd there was no way to automatically deskew data in R, so I wrote a short little function to do it.  It noticeably improves the peformance of linear models and linear support vector machines.
