Python Overtakes R for Data Science and Machine Learning

This article summarizes a trend in programming languages usage, based on a number of proxy metrics. This change started to be more pronounced in early 2017: Python became the language of choice, over R, for data science and machine learning applications. 

Statistics from Google

Google has one app called Google Trend to find out trends about specific subjects, to compare interest for a number of…

The Fundamentals of Data Science

Guest blog post by Mic Farris. Mic is a Decision Science & Analytics Leader at CenturyLink.

Two of the biggest buzzwords in our industry are “big data” and “data science”. Big Data seems to have a lot of interest right now, but Data Science is fast becoming a very hot topic.

Predicting the next Eclipse

Here we describe a rudimentary method, using basic trigonometry, to predict lunar and solar eclipses. The purpose is to get people interested in the mathematics behind these events. We assume here that the Sun, the Earth and the Moon are just points. Thus we do not predict where on Earth eclipses take place, nor whether they are full of partial. But we derive some interesting results, such as

  • Solar eclipses are as frequent as lunar eclipses
  • On average, a solar eclipse…

Robust Attacks on Machine Learning Models

This is a nightmare! Tadayoshi Kohno, Professor at Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Washington, manipulated a STOP sign in a typical "graffiti way", that it was recognized as 45 mph SPEED limit by typical AI software, such as built into a Tesla S. It's very likely, that it will become a sport to send Tesla drivers to hell. …

When AI (Artificial Intelligence) Goes Wrong...

The intelligence in AI is computational intelligence, and a better word could be Automated Intelligence. But when it comes to good judgment, AI is not smarter than the human brain that designed it. Many automated systems perform poorly, to the point that you are wondering if AI is an abbreviation for Artificial Innumeracy.

Critical systems - automated piloting, running a power plant - usually do well with AI and automation, as considerable testing is done before deploying these…

Nice Generalization of the K-NN Clustering Algorithm -- Also Useful for Data Reduction

I describe here an interesting and intuitive clustering algorithm (that can be used for data reduction as well) offering several advantages, over traditional classifiers:

  • More robust against outliers and erroneous data
  • Executing much faster
  • Generalizing well known algorithms

You don't need to know K-NN to understand this article -- but click here if you want to…
