Disclaimer: Some basic exposure to machine learning is assumed. Neural nets are on the rise, now that computing power and parallel data processing capabilities have reached the levels that allow them to shine. Recurrent neural nets, the more sophisticated kind that possess time dynamics, have achieved spectacular results in certain areas. Overfitting, however, has … Read More
I recently attended the O’Reilly AI Conference in New York where artificial intelligence practitioners showcased the impressive strides they’ve made so far in using AI for real-world applications
Predictive modeling is one of the figureheads of big data. Machine Learning Theory asserts that the more data the better, and empirical observations suggest that the more granular data, the better the performance (provided you have modern algorithms and big data) but the paradox of predictive modeling is that when you need models the most, even all the data is not enough.
Tracey Welson-Rossman talks to Anita Garamella Andrews, VP of Client Analytics Services at R.J. Metrics, about analytics and actionable data.
Sujan Kapadia writes: “This year I’ve started going to the DataPhilly meetups, and I think I’m hooked. The bottom line is DataPhilly talks are very intriguing, expose you to topics you don’t encounter everyday, and give you the chance to meet “non-traditional” developers (scientists and statisticians), whose ranks are rapidly growing.”
We are holding an all-day event on October 30th, downtown in the Philadelphia Cira Centre, that shines a light on large-scale data processing and application management. In this article I’m going to explain a bit about the event’s goals, and some information on the speakers and talks we’ve been lining up.
The TechCast is sponsored by Chariot Solutions Education Services – for training in Scala, Spring, Grails, Android, Maven and more. We aren’t just slide turners, either. Ask us about interactive mentoring and semi-structured learning as well. The TechCast this week was devoted to Sujan’s trip to OSCON 2013. He and a number of other Chariot … Read More

Our day 1 keynote presentation was delivered by Claudia Perlich of Media Six Degrees. She’s been working in the data science field long before it became a hugely popular career choice. This keynote was both filmed and screen-captured, so you’ll not only hear Ms. Perlich and watch her slides, but view the presentation as it … Read More
