Who wants to hear a story about data?!
Understandably, not a lot of people would raise their hands to an intro like that. For me, however, data has sculpted my career path and led to many exciting opportunities over the life of my profession. It hasn't been easy -- I think any entrepreneur would tell you the same and surely the content and media attention around self-starting individuals would concur. But I'm not here to tell you about the hardships of…Continue

Ethics in machine learning are what comes to mind when we imagine a worst case scenario in the context of artificial intelligence. As an example, we can think of HAL 9000 from ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ and Skynet from the ‘Terminator’ films or more recently Ultron from the ‘Avengers’. Sadly, the main thinking behind most of the depicted self aware artificial…Continue

Given the touting of recent analytic and machine learning results in healthcare, why haven't doctors been replaced by computers yet? The truth is that there are many obstacles that stand in the way of implementing analytics in healthcare. Ethical issues introduced by this technology are also fiercely debated and must be considered. Finally, while obstacles imply a possibility of being overcome, there are also limitations to this technology,…Continue

Congestive heart failure (CHF) has been called an "epidemic" and a "staggering clinical and public health problem" (Roger, 2013). It can be defined as the impaired ability of the ventricle to fill or eject with blood. Consequences include difficulty breathing, coughing fits, leg swelling, decreased quality of life, and ultimately death. As life expectancy increases globally, we can only expect to see this syndrome more frequently. Fortunately, the advents of…Continue

I’d like to introduce a series of blog posts and their corresponding Python Notebooks gathering notes on the Deep Learning Book from Ian Goodfellow, Yoshua Bengio, and Aaron Courville (2016). The aim of these notebooks is to help beginners/advanced beginners to grasp linear algebra concepts underlying deep learning and machine learning. Acquiring these skills can boost your ability to understand and apply various data science algorithms. In…Continue

Now that Christmas and the New Year are behind us the nights are becoming a little longer with each passing day. Nevertheless, there's still loads of cold winter nights left to endure (unless you're in the Southern Hemisphere, in which case – throw me a shrimp on the barbie!).
It's time to dust off your New Year resolutions from last year (remember those?) and get ready for a new start, a new you and learn some new data skills.
I’ve thrown together a collection of five…Continue
Summary: Digital Twins is a concept based in IoT but requiring the skills of machine learning and potentially AI. It’s not completely new but it is integral to Gartner’s vision of the digital enterprise and makes the Hype Cycle for 2017. It’s a major enabler of event processing as opposed to traditional request processing.Continue
