Most Popular Content on DSC

We have been in existence for over 10 years now, with content in many different places, lists, categories, and databases. This is an attempt to put everything together in one place, and help our readers (re-)discover some great articles and resources that were lost on the Internet over the years, but still sit on our web servers. We are making them come back to life. We are in the process of organizing it in a way that is user-friendly.  Some of the resources below are very recent, and some…

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…

Is Robotic Process Automation (RPA) Really AI?

Summary:  Based on a McKinsey study we reported that 47% of companies had at least one AI/ML implementation in place.  Looking back at the data and the dominance of RPA as the most widely reported instance makes us think that the number is probably significantly lower.

 

We’ve been trying to get a handle on…

Training for Context: The Importance of Word2Vec

We’ve all experienced the great data rush as companies push to use analytics to drive business decisions. After all, the proliferation of data and its intelligent analysis can change entire company trajectories. But to make the quintillions of data created each day truly useful, as well as all that has come before, it must be understandable to an artificial intelligence (AI) system.

 

Dealing with numbers is one thing, but human language is…

Visualizing New York City WiFi Access with K-Means Clustering

Visualization has become a key application of data science in the telecommunications industry.

Specifically, telecommunication analysis is highly dependent on the use of geospatial data. This is because telecommunication networks in themselves are geographically dispersed, and analysis of such dispersions can yield valuable insights regarding network structures, consumer demand and availability.

Data



To illustrate this point, a k-means clustering algorithm is used…

Text Encoding: A Review

The key to perform any text mining operation, such as topic detection or sentiment analysis, is to transform words into numbers, sequences of words into sequences of numbers. Once we have numbers, we are back in the well-known game of data analytics, where machine learning algorithms can help us with classifying and clustering.

We will focus here exactly on that part of the analysis that transforms words…
