Recognizing Animals in Photos: Building an AI model for Object Recognition

Our model for recognizing specific animals in images is a neural network consisting of multiple layers, and the initial layers are already good at understanding the world in general. So instead of “re-inventing the wheel,” we only need to train the final layers.

I was excited to work on a recent project with one of our partners, Wild Detect, because it aligns with one of our goals at Appsilon — to use data science consulting to aid in the…

Long-range Correlations in Time Series: Modeling, Testing, Case Study

We investigate a large class of auto-correlated, stationary time series, proposing a new statistical test to measure departure from the base model, known as Brownian motion. We also discuss a methodology to deconstruct these time series, in order to identify the root mechanism that generates the observations. The time series studied here can be discrete or continuous in time, they  can have various degrees of smoothness (typically measured using the Hurst exponent) as well as long-range or…

New word for Data Science - Signuology

I propose a new word for data science for sparking new thinking. Signuology is defined as the study of sets of characteristic predictive signals contained within data in the form of combined features of the data that are characteristic of an observation of interest within the data.

The terms data mining and data structure imply rigid and discrete characteristics. A signal has more flexibility, borrowing from ideas contained in the superposition principle in physics. One can take the…
