Data or Algorithms – Which is More Important?

Summary:  Which is more important, the data or the algorithms?  This chicken and egg question led me to realize that it’s the data, and specifically the way we store and process the data that has dominated data science over the last 10 years.  And it all leads back to Hadoop.

 

Recently I was challenged to speak on the role of data in data…

Object Constructs More Accurate than Language or Numbers

In my last blog, I explained my “Animal Spirit Model,” which I used to consider Paddock the Vegas shooter and the fictitious character Jack Torrance (played by Jack Nicholson) in the 1980 horror movie “The Shining.”  In this blog, I will be considering the character of Mrs. Torrance - Jack’s wife (played by Shelley Duvall).  Below I present the computer generated description for Mrs. Torrance followed by her animal spirit on Excel.  The descriptor program responds to the settings on the…

Natural Language Understanding – Application Notes with Context Discriminant

Introduction

Deep Learning can be used to automate just about every repetitive task that is currently or formerly performed by humans. Factory robots, autonomous cars, Internet of Things are example of these automations. Yet, mentally challenging tasks such as conducting research or strategic planning with natural language textual documents remain a daunting task for automation. We look into the root cause of this challenge and have implemented a solution to automate these…

Deciphering the Neural Language Model

Recently, I have been working on the Neural Networks for Machine Learning course offered by Coursera and taught by Geoffrey Hinton. Overall, it is a nice course and provides an introduction to some of the modern topics in deep learning. However, there are instances where the student has to do lots of extra work in order to understand the topics covered in full detail.

One of the assignments in…

Common Coding Situations in Java

 This blog contains some snippets of code that I tend to use in Java.  I acknowledge that somebody else writing this blog might include different code.  Except for a short course at Sun Educational Services, most of my Java programming skills are self-taught.  I’m unsure if people with formal backgrounds in computer science might have different styles and conventions.  Mine have been shaped primarily by my needs.

Structural Relationships in Data

The first computer program that I encountered mimicking or emulating human interaction through language was called "Eliza." The version that I knew ran on the Commodore PET. It communicated in English. Eliza made comments that made some sense but which indicated lack of understanding of the conversation. If a person mentions "mother," Eliza might…
