Artificial Intelligence might not be the newest entrant in smart technology but, its redefined usage is. It has recently gained mass popularity. Now, it is being accepted across many industries. With the general public embracing AI, government agencies are also considering this fantastic technology. AI can imitate human's decision-making skills. Thus, it has the potential to improve the decision-making ability of various applications. The AI engine is useful for multiple applications such…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
BigQuery is Google’s serverless, highly scalable, enterprise data warehouse designed to make all your data analysts productive at an unmatched price-performance. Because there is no infrastructure to manage, you can focus on analyzing data to find meaningful insights using familiar SQL without the need for a database administrator.
Analyze all your data by…Continue

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 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…Continue

Data Science is a combination of data inference, algorithms, and technology that solves complex problems. The core of this technology is data that is initially raw, then is streamlined, and stored in a data warehouse. These vast amounts of data can help generate significant business values.…Continue

Summary: Adoption of AI/ML by larger companies has more than doubled since last year according to these survey results from McKinsey and Stanford’s Human-Centered AI Institute. This new data gives us a much better idea of which global regions and which industries are adopting which AI/ML techniques.

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…Continue

Understanding customer transactional behaviour pays well for any business. With the tsunami of start ups in recent times and the immense money flow in businesses, customers find lucrative offers from companies for acquisition, retention & referrals strategies. Understanding transactional behaviour of a customer has become even more complex with the invent of new business houses everyday. Although, with the rise of powerful machines, one can…Continue

Summary: The world of healthcare may look like the most fertile field for AI/ML apps but in practice it’s fraught with barriers. These range from cultural differences, to the failure of developers to really understand the environment they are trying to enhance, to regulatory and logical Catch 22s that work against adoption. Part 3 of 3.
Summary: Despite hundreds of projects and thousands of data scientists devoted to bringing AI/ML to healthcare, adoption remains low and slow. A good portion of this problem is our own fault for failing to see the processes being disrupted through the eyes of the physician users. Here we lay out the healthcare opportunity landscape but for data scientists following classical disruption strategies, it may be more of a minefield. Part 2 of…Continue

Summary: If you want to understand the promise of AI/ML in healthcare you need to see it through the eyes of physicians, the ultimate users. Turns out these folks aren’t the rapid adopters you’d think they’d be and the problem is largely with the way data scientists have tried to implement. Part 1 of 3.

Measuring the similarity between texts is a common task in many applications. It is useful in classic NLP fields like search, as well as in such far from NLP areas as medicine and genetics. There are many different approaches of how to compare two texts (strings of characters). Each has its own advantages and disadvantages and is good only…Continue

Data scientists and predictive modelers often use 1-D and 2-D aggregate statistics for exploratory analysis, data cleaning, and feature creation. Higher dimensional aggregations, i.e., 3 dimensional and above, are more difficult to visualize and understand. High density regions are one example of these N-dimensional statistics. High density regions can be useful for summarizing common characteristics across multiple variables. Another use case is to validate a forecast prediction’s…Continue

As we make more cashless payments for retail purchases, restaurants, and transportation – not to mention the increase in online shopping – wallets loaded with legal tender may become a thing of the past. According to 2018 research by BigCommerce, software vendor and Square payment processing solution provider, 51 percent of Americans think that online shopping is the best option. Last year, 1.66 billion people worldwide bought goods online. And the…Continue
