"A) What are they analyzing?
B) How good is your trainer?
C) What certification are you looking at
D) What does the "certification" actually mean.
E) How do you measure benefit.
Perhaps these are good things to share."
"What would stop you from using a Poisson Regression technique here? like logistic, its log linear in the case of Poisson, Natural log, and I think you could do this in R very quickly and measure the Overdispersion coefficient to see if you have the…"
"Very interesting. I would love to collaborate on getting a MATLAB version of this up and running to be compiled into C. only problem I see is that SMO scales as an O(n^2) or with some clever tricks a little less then that so it would depend on the…"
"http://bit.ly/bOzPuq -> will have to hunt for this for free. random forests of multinomial logits. 2008 good for multiclass classification and regression and overcoming curse of dim.
http://bit.ly/asrmLW -> BART. rigor of bayes, coolness of…"
"I think the main problem here is that Naive Bayes assumes conditional independence between the distribution of input statistics, real life is not quite so simple. I believe that sequential minimal optimization is the way to go these days with spam…"
"Paul what are you using a TSVM for? I've been looking for a reason to code this up in MATLAB and add it to my companies libraries (actually a TSMO for the speedup). I think you will have some trouble finding this open source at least until one…"
Predictive Analytics professional hell bent on changing the way people deal with big data. expert level experience with implementing modern analytics. SVM, SMO, RVM, clustering, reinforcement learning and all things stats. I run a company that serves these algorithms in a a scalable manner and work very hard to code them myself outside of an open source offering to maintain complete control over every detail of calculation.
