Both R & Python should be measured based on their effectiveness in advanced analytics & data science. Initially, as a new comer in data science field we spend good amount of time to understand the pros and cons of these two. I too carried out this study solely for “self” to decide which tool should i pick to get in depth of data science. Eventually, i have started realizing that both (R & Python) has its space of mastery along with their broad support to data science. Here some…Continue

There are two major perspectives of Data Science we can look at:
- Consumer/User Perspective
- Data Scientist’s Perspective
This article explores these two areas to ponder upon in little more depth.
- Consumer/User Perspective (User will not like “noise”)
A single user/consumer might need some analysis to either start some study or make some decisions. This single user might be a CIO/CTO or perhaps we can also say that this single user is a group of decision…Continue

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