Although RPA tools make significant strides, automating routine tasks and allowing humans to focus on more sophisticated ones, yet, they can’t adjust their procedures to self-execution without human help. On the other hand, there are natural language processing tools, with all their power to finally automate routine tasks.
Working in unison with RPA, artificial intelligence solutions “rethink” the ways companies…Continue

Startups often feel like they are at the center of a massive crossroad. Each path has at least one person waving them on with the promise of a growth hack that will turn their crawling, infant business into one that walks and talks.
Who do you listen to and which metrics do you use to measure your startup? It’s a difficult pair of questions to answer and the constant chirping of everyone sharing their opinion on what’s important for your…Continue
Oh, the strategy pundits hate me! It’s not because I’m tall, good looking and from Iowa (well, 2 out of 3 ain’t bad), it’s because I think Strategy as a “Discipline” is way overblown. I won’t go as far as the Harvard Business Review to state that “Strategy is Dead”, but the importance of carefully defining a strategy (typically done in the ivory towers of the puzzle palace) and then commanding all the little soldiers to follow the strategy script are over!

Summary: As we have become ever more enamored with DNNs, and their accuracy and utility has been paced only by their complexity we will need to answer the question of whether we will ever really be able to explain what goes on inside.

There are some expressions about data that are getting a bit tired: Data is the new oil; In God We Trust (all others must bring data); Buy data, sell high...
Okay, you caught me, I kind of made that last one up. But, the point stands: the narrative around data tells us we all understand that it has tremendous value.
Data teams are tasked with gathering information from within their company and from any number of external sources, tying it all…Continue

As commerce slowly opens up in our world over the next few months, competition for customers will accelerate like never before. It remains to be seen how big the pent-up demand will be for dining out, consuming goods and services, and travel, for starters. After months of shutdown of all but essential services and loss of steady income for millions, will consumers slow or even stop their purchasing; or will…Continue

We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to address one of modern society’s biggest challenges – the choice between healthcare or the economy. For the past several decades, we have treated this as an “either or” choice between one or the other; that to improve the economy we must reduce healthcare spending or to improve healthcare we must sacrifice the economy. To that sort of thinking I say BULL!
The coronavirus COVID-19 situation is showing us a very…Continue

At time of crisis, everyone is scrambling for the latest news for signals of changes and make decisions to mitigate risk. Average person uses common sense to draw inference on relevancy. For example, as the Coronavirus Crisis evolves, many decided to hog up bathroom tissue. As much as it is common sense for many, it simply does not make sense. However, when it is evaluated against aggregated common sense, we can eliminate many of these signals.
In financial modeling, analyst…Continue

In my previous post, I introduced the ELAINE Community Tool that can be used to discover variables from textual communications.
Statistical predictors work well for charting the course of economic activities based on macro factors that elicit supply and demand if the market environment is within a close proximity of a pattern that resembles previous economic cycles. Unfortunately, in today’s geo-political environment, many of these new variables are injecting forces that…Continue
I’ve had several folks tell me that if I can’t convert the “effects” in the Schmarzo "Economic Digital Asset Valuation Theorem” into mathematical equations, that my quest for a Nobel Prize in Economics would be greatly hindered. So, I enlisted the help of my senior data science team of Wei Lin, Mauro Damo and Yong Zhang to help me address this problem (they were only diverted from small projects related to preserving our rainforests, improving healthcare and reducing carbon…Continue

“Begin with an end in mind” – Stephen Covey “7 Habits of Highly Effective People”
No truer words have ever been spoken. A simple phrase that makes everyone’s life easier and more productive. Our data science team tries to live by that simple phrase, but it’s difficult because we want to jump right into “solution mode” …we have seen so many similar problems, that we already know and understand how to solve that problem. And that’s an…Continue
