Traditional databases couldn’t possibly keep up with the massive numbers of records that have to be created today, […]

Understanding the “simplicity” of reinforcement learning: comprehensive tips to take the trouble out of RL

*I adjusted mathematical notations in this article as close as possible to “Reinforcement Learning:An Introduction.”  This book by Sutton and Barto is said to be almost mandatory for those who studying reinforcement learning. Also I tried to avoid as much mathematical notations, introducing some intuitive examples. In case any descriptions are confusing or unclear, informing […]

The Basics of Logistic Regression in Data Science

Data science is a field that is growing by leaps and bounds. A couple decades ago, using a machine learning program to make predictions about datasets was the purview of science fiction. Today, all you need is a computer, some solid programming, and a bit of patience, and you, too, can have your own digital […]

Why Your Data Science Team Needs Separate Testing, Validation & Training Sets

Automated testing of machine learning models can help to dramatically reduce the amount of time and effort that your team has to dedicate to debugging them. Not applying these techniques properly, however, could potentially do a great deal of harm if the process is completely unmonitored and doesn’t adhere to a list of best practices. […]

How to Successfully Perform a Data Quality Assessment (DQA)

People generate 2.5 quintillion bytes of data every single day. That’s 1.7 megabytes generated every second for each of the 7.8 billion residents of Earth. A lot of that information is junk that somebody can easily discard, but just as much can prove to be vital. How do you tell the difference? According to industry […]

Coffee Shop Location Predictor

As part of this article, we will explore the main steps involved in predicting the best location for a coffee shop in Vancouver. We will also take into consideration that the coffee shop is near a transit station, and has no Starbucks near it. Well, while at it, let us also add an extra feature […]

What Is Data Lake Architecture?

The volume of information produced by everyone in the world is growing exponentially. To put it in perspective, it’s estimated that by 2023 the big data analytics market will reach $103 billion. Finding probable solutions for storing big data is a challenge. It’s no easy task to hold enormous amounts of information, clean it and […]
