Why would a data scientist use Kafka Jupyter Python KSQL TensorFlow all together in a single notebook?
There is an impedance mismatch between model development using Python and its Machine Learning tool stack and a scalable, reliable data platform. The former is what you need for quick and easy prototyping to build analytic models. The latter is what you need to use for data ingestion, preprocessing, model deployment and monitoring at scale. It…Continue

My writing engagement at Data Science Central came up unexpectedly. Back in August 2018, I stumbled upon an excellent write-up on Data Science Central. The author, Bill Vorhies, shared his thoughts on career transitioning toward data science. I wrote him an email, complimenting him on his blog post, and I dropped a few lines about my own transition. Here's his response:
"Congratulations on your remarkable journey. Perhaps you’d like to write one or more articles…Continue

Over the last years, my small business has undergone a digital transformation from a marketing service company to a data literacy consultancy. What does a data literacy consultancy do? We teach business users within large enterprises to work with data, and we help them acquire the necessary skills from state of the art Excel to Python, querying structured, semi-structured and unstructured databases, as well as math, statistics, and probability.
The short answer is: "No."
I started teaching myself programming in my 40s, and I am a strong advocate that everyone should learn to code. Even if you have no intent to become a developer or a full-stack data scientist, coding teaches you a couple valuable lessons:
English is becoming the official language in the global business world, being currently spoken by approximately 1.75 billion people worldwide according to Harvard Business Review. While English is the fastest spreading language in human history, a significant proportion of businesses are still resistant to giving up…Continue

Microsoft Excel has been around for over 30 years now, and chances are it's not going to change in the foreseeable future. In fact, Excel is facing immense competition from challengers such as Google Spreadsheets and well-funded start-ups like Airtable, which are both going after Excel's massive user base of approximately 500 million worldwide. Tech-savvy small and mid-sized businesses embrace innovative alternatives to Excel. However,…Continue

Did you know that you can write R and Python code within your T-SQL statements? Machine Learning Services in SQLServer eliminates the need for data movement. Instead of transferring large and sensitive data over the network or losing accuracy with sample csv files, you can have your R/Python code execute within your database. Easily deploy your R/Python code with SQL stored procedures making them accessible in your…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

In machine learning, a convolutional neural network (CNN, or ConvNet) is a class of neural networks that has successfully been applied to image recognition and analysis. In this project I've approached this class of models trying to apply it to stock market prediction, combining stock prices with sentiment analysis. The implementation of the network has been made…Continue
