All machine intelligence is powered by data. This isn't ground-breaking, or even news – we've known about data's value for decades now. However, not all data are created equal, and we'll be looking at executing machine learning products from a standpoint that prioritizes the quality of the data streaming into them.
Machine Learning (ML) is a specific subset of…

Developed at MIT’s Sloan School of Management in 1950s system dynamics is a methodological approach to model the behavior of complex systems, where change in one component leads to change in others (like the dominos effect with feedback loops added). This approach is widely applied in industries such as healthcare, disease research, public transportation, business management and revenue forecasting. The most famous application of system dynamics probably is in… Continue

As we all know CRISP DM stands for Cross Industry Standard Process for Data Mining is a process model that outlines the most common approach to tackle data driven problems. Per the poll conducted by KDNuggets in 2014 this was and “is” one of the most popular and widest used methodology. This method of gleaning insights out of the data is very dear to the industry experts and data miners.
As the title suggest I will align some of the most useful R packages with this most popular and… Continue

An insightful person once said, “Prediction is like driving your car forward by looking only at the rearview mirror!”. If the road is dead-straight, you are good . . . UNLESS there is a stalled vehicle ahead in the middle of the road.
We should consider short-term and long-term prediction separately. Long-term prediction is nearly a lost cause. In the 80’s and 90’s, chaos and complexity theorists showed us that things can spin out of control even when we have perfect… Continue
