Excel is often poorly regarded as a platform for regression analysis. The regression add-in in its Analysis Toolpak has not changed since it was introduced in 1995, and it was a flawed design even back then. (See **this link** for a discussion.) That’s unfortunate, because an Excel file can be a very good place in which to build regression models, compare and refine them, create…

Emerging applications like machine learning (ML), big data analytics, and artificial intelligence (AI) has created the need for many companies to hire highly skilled and experienced work force. Demand for data scientists, ML engineers and data engineers is booming and will only increase in the next years. The January report from Indeed, one of the top job sites, showed a 29% increase in demand for data scientists year over year and a 344% increase since 2013.

Machine learning applications require powerful and scalable computing systems that can sustain the high computation complexity of these applications. Companies that are working on the domain of machine learning have to allocate a significant amount of their budget for the OpEx of machine learning applications whether this is done on cloud or on-prem.

Typical machine learning application…

Yes, I know, this has been tried a few times and no one listens.... At least not yet. Despite several studies showing otherwise, teams still punt more than they should. Admittedly, some of these studies have been less than rigorous, and often times, assumptions are made that warrant scrutiny (assuming a 50% success rate on all 4th down attempts for example). But I don't think it is the lack of scientific rigor that keeps change at bay. I think the failure to adopt a novel strategy has a lot…

There are many good and sophisticated feature selection algorithms available in R. Feature selection refers to the machine learning case where we have a set of predictor variables for a given dependent variable, but we don’t know a-priori which predictors are most important and if a model can be improved by eliminating some predictors from a model. In linear regression, many students are taught to fit a data set to find the best model using so-called “least squares”. In most…

The concepts of p-value and level of significance are vital components of hypothesis testing and advanced methods like regression. However, they can be a little tricky to understand, especially for beginners and good understanding of these concepts can go a long way in understanding advanced concepts in statistics and econometrics. Here, we try to simplify the concept in an easy, logical manner. Hope this helps.

In hypothesis testing, we set…

Research fields usually follow the practice of categorizing continuous predictor variables, and they are the same who mostly use ANOVA. They often do it through median splits, the high value above the median and the low values below the median. However; this it seems is not that good an idea, and enlisted are some of the reasons to it:

- Median tends to vary from sample to sample. This makes the categories in various samples have various…

The **numpy**, **scipy**, and **statsmodels** libraries are frequently used when it comes to generating regression output. While these libraries are frequently used in regression analysis, it is often the case that a user might choose different libraries depending on the data in question, among other considerations. Here, we will go through how to use each of the above to generate regression output.

Linear Regression is one of the most widely used statistical models. If Y is a continuous variable i.e. can take decimal values, and is expected to have linear relation with X's variables, this relation could be modeled as linear regression, mostly the **first** model to fit,if we are planning to develop a model of forecasting Y or trying to build hypothesis about relation Xs on Y.

The…

**INTRODUCTION TO THE RESEARCH QUESTION**

The research was conducted to find out what price maximises profit without sacrificing the high demand for the product due to the price being too high nor sacrificing the margins on the product due to the price being too low.

The goal is to experiment with different price levels for the same product in one market place and country to see how sales volumes change with prices and which volume level of…

Tensorflow is an open source machine learning (ML) library from Google. It has particularly became popular because of the support for Deep Learning. Apart from that it's highly scalable and can run on Android. The documentation is well maintained and several tutorials available for different expertise levels. To learn more about downloading and installing Tesnorflow, visit official website.

To scratch the surface of this incredible ML library,…

Single regression on Exxon's stock

Let's recall our last job. We conducted the single regression on Exxon Mobil's stock along with WTI crude oil spot price. The result was fantastic, which accounts for 25% of the variation of stock movement. Put it in other way, R-square. The problem is "are you happy with the…

UPDATE: Mar 20, 2016 - Added my new follow-up course on Deep Learning, which covers ways to speed up and improve vanilla backpropagation: momentum and Nesterov momentum, adaptive learning rate algorithms like AdaGrad and RMSProp, utilizing the GPU on AWS EC2, and stochastic batch gradient descent. We look at TensorFlow and Theano starting from the basics - variables, functions, expressions, and simple optimizations - from there, building a neural network seems simple! …

Classification is one of the major problems that we solve while working on standard business problems across industries. In this article we’ll be discussing the major three of the many techniques used for the same, Logistic Regression, Decision Trees and Support Vector Machines [SVM].

All of the above listed algorithms are used in classification [ SVM and Decision Trees are also used for regression, but we are not discussing that today!]. Time and again I have seen people asking which…

Life scientists collect similar type of data on daily basis. Statistical analysis of this data is often performed using SAS programming techniques. Programming for each dataset is a time consuming job. The objective of this paper is to show how SAS programs are created for systematic analysis of raw data to develop a linear regression model for prediction. Then to show how PROC SQL can be used to replace several data steps in the code. Finally to show how SAS macros are created on these…

I have never been formally trained on how to deal with seasonality. But I wanted to take a moment to share my perspective based on experience, which I hope readers will find fairly straightforward. Some people use sales revenues in order to evaluate seasonal differences. I find it more desirable to analyze units sold if possible. A price increase resulting in slightly higher revenues does not in itself represent increased demand. Nor should discounted prices leading to reduced revenues…
