A Simple Introduction to Complex Stochastic Processes

Stochastic processes have many applications, including in finance and physics. It is an interesting model to represent many phenomena. Unfortunately the theory behind it is very difficult, making it accessible to a few 'elite' data scientists, and not popular in business contexts.

One of the most simple examples is a random walk, and indeed easy to understand with no mathematical background. However, time-continuous stochastic processes are always defined and studied using advanced…

Comparison of Deepnet & Neuralnet

Guest blog post by Blaine Batman. Based on two R packages for neural networks.

In this article, I compare two available R packages for using neural networks to model data: neuralnet and deepnet. Through the comparisons I highlight various challenges in finding good hyperparameter values. I show that some needed hyperparameters differ when using these two packages, even with the same…

Trump Solves Famous Mathematical Conjecture

In an email sent to Putin and intercepted by hackers, Donald Trump mentions the result below. However, Trump wrote that he did not have enough space in his message to add the proof, a bit like Fermat when he wrote about his big theorem proved 300 years later. A teacher in New Hope Middle School (Pennsylvania) asked her students to verify if the statement was correct, and found it to be true. In his email, Trump wrote that he planned to leverage this result to find new prime numbers. It was…
