Data Have Meaning
We live in a Big Data world in which everything is quantified. While the emphasis of Big Data has been focused on distinguishing the three characteristics of data (the infamous three Vs), we need to be cognizant of the fact that data have meaning. That is, the numbers in your data represent something of interest, an outcome that is important to your business. The meaning of those numbers is about the veracity of your data.

[ DATA SCIENCE Q&A]

Q:What is the difference between supervised learning and unsupervised learning? Give concrete examples
?

A: * Supervised learning: inferring a function from labeled training data
* Supervised learning: predictor measurements associated with a response measurement; we wish to fit a model that relates both for better understanding the relation between them (inference) or with the aim to accurately predicting the response for future observations (prediction)
* Supervised learning: support vector machines, neural networks, linear regression, logistic regression, extreme gradient boosting
* Supervised learning examples: predict the price of a house based on the are, size.; churn prediction; predict the relevance of search engine results.
* Unsupervised learning: inferring a function to describe hidden structure of unlabeled data
* Unsupervised learning: we lack a response variable that can supervise our analysis
* Unsupervised learning: clustering, principal component analysis, singular value decomposition; identify group of customers
* Unsupervised learning examples: find customer segments; image segmentation; classify US senators by their voting.

[ TIPS & TRICKS OF THE WEEK]

Grow at the speed of collaboration
A research by Cornerstone On Demand pointed out the need for better collaboration within workforce, and data analytics domain is no different. A rapidly changing and growing industry like data analytics is very difficult to catchup by isolated workforce. A good collaborative work-environment facilitate better flow of ideas, improved team dynamics, rapid learning, and increasing ability to cut through the noise. So, embrace collaborative team dynamics.

[ DATA SCIENCE Q&A]

Q:Is it better to have 100 small hash tables or one big hash table, in memory, in terms of access speed (assuming both fit within RAM)? What do you think about in-database analytics?
A: Hash tables:
– Average case O(1)O(1) lookup time
– Lookup time doesn’t depend on size

Even in terms of memory:
– O(n)O(n) memory
– Space scales linearly with number of elements
– Lots of dictionaries won’t take up significantly less space than a larger one

In-database analytics:
– Integration of data analytics in data warehousing functionality
– Much faster and corporate information is more secure, it doesn’t leave the enterprise data warehouse
Good for real-time analytics: fraud detection, credit scoring, transaction processing, pricing and margin analysis, behavioral ad targeting and recommendation engines

[ TIPS & TRICKS OF THE WEEK]

Fix the Culture, spread awareness to get awareness
Adoption of analytics tools and capabilities has not yet caught up to industry standards. Talent has always been the bottleneck towards achieving the comparative enterprise adoption. One of the primal reason is lack of understanding and knowledge within the stakeholders. To facilitate wider adoption, data analytics leaders, users, and community members needs to step up to create awareness within the organization. An aware organization goes a long way in helping get quick buy-ins and better funding which ultimately leads to faster adoption. So be the voice that you want to hear from leadership.

[ DATA SCIENCE Q&A]

Q:Compare R and Python
A: R
– Focuses on better, user friendly data analysis, statistics and graphical models
– The closer you are to statistics, data science and research, the more you might prefer R
– Statistical models can be written with only a few lines in R
– The same piece of functionality can be written in several ways in R
– Mainly used for standalone computing or analysis on individual servers
– Large number of packages, for anything!

Python
– Used by programmers that want to delve into data science
– The closer you are working in an engineering environment, the more you might prefer Python
– Coding and debugging is easier mainly because of the nice syntax
– Any piece of functionality is always written the same way in Python
– When data analysis needs to be implemented with web apps
– Good tool to implement algorithms for production use

Q:Do you think 50 small decision trees are better than a large one? Why?
A: * Yes!
* More robust model (ensemble of weak learners that come and make a strong learner)
* Better to improve a model by taking many small steps than fewer large steps
* If one tree is erroneous, it can be auto-corrected by the following
* Less prone to overfitting
