Machine Learning Algorithm – Backbone of emerging technologies

Machine learning is a method of data analysis that automates analytical model building. It is inherently different rather than pushing the commands by programmer regarding how to solve; it explains how to proceed towards learning to solve the problem on its own. Resurging interest in machine learning is due to the fact that it works by learning to identify patterns in data and then make predictions from those patterns. These technologies are widely used in projects including Spelling correction in web search engines, Analysis of information from IOT devices, Real-time language translation and much more. Machine learning algorithms are replacing a large amount of the jobs across the world, in the upcoming years. The algorithms can be broadly classified as Supervised, Unsupervised, Reinforcement Learning and others on the basis of their different categories.

Google Data Studio: New Feature Roundup

Defining the Data Science Landscape

At events, in meetings and in general conversation with people, it’s struck me that many seem to use data science, machine learning and artificial intelligence interchangeably. And while in passing that’s okay, there are distinctions between each that make them very different. Here, we look at how to define each of those three categories and why they’re different.

When Data Science Alone Won’t Cut it: Deriving Signal from Observations in the Maritime Domain

I recently read an article (paywall) in the WSJ about Paul Allen’s Vulcan initiative to curb illegal fishing. It’s insightful and sheds light on Big Data techniques to address societal problems. After thinking on the story, it struck me that it could be used as a pedagogical tool to synthesize data science with domain knowledge. To me, this stands as the biggest limitation of what I refer to as ‘data science thinking’- letting technical skills drive the analysis, only later incorporating domain understanding. This post somewhat reads like a case note from business school and the idea is to get data scientists, product managers and engineers talking earlier on in the process. I’ve laid it out to provide sufficient context around illegal fishing and how one might develop models to answer the key business question: can illegal fishing be combatted through novel approaches?

The Internet of Things: An Introductory Tutorial Series

In this series of post, the author will be presenting a set of Internet of Things technologies and applications in the form of tutorial in chapter form. Basic concepts are covered with an approachable style, not heaped in technical terms.

Teaching the Next Generation of Statistics Students to “Think With Data”: Special Issue on Statistics and the Undergraduate Curriculum

This is an exciting time to be a statistician. The contribution of the discipline of statistics to scientific knowledge is widely recognized (McNutt ?2014?? McNutt, M. (2014), “Raising the Bar,” Science, 345, 9. [CrossRef], [PubMed], [Web of Science ®], [Google Scholar] ) with increasingly positive public perception. Many feel “daunted by the challenge of extracting understanding from floods of disconnected data that threaten to swamp every discipline” (Yamamoto ?2013?? Yamamoto, K. (2013), “Time to Play Ball,” Science, 340, 1375. [CrossRef], [PubMed], [Web of Science ®], [Google Scholar] ).
