Correct formula for tax-inclusive prices

This applies to products sold in US. If the listed price is tax-inclusive, many businesses will list the price as P = p + p*r, where p is the price before tax, and r the tax rate.However if you do so, you have to pay taxes on p*r: the amount is (p*r)*r = p*(r^2). You  can factor this into you final price, adding p*(r^2) so that P becomes P = p + p*r + p*(r^2). But then you must pay taxes on p*(r^2) and so on recursively in an infinite loop.Your final price will beP = p*(1 + r + r^2 + r^3 + ...)…See More

Profile Information

Short Bio:
Well rounded, visionary data science executive with broad spectrum of domain expertise, technical knowledge, and proven success in bringing measurable added value to companies ranging from startups to fortune 100, across multiple industries (finance, Internet, media, IT, security) and domains (data science, operations research, machine learning, computer science, business intelligence, statistics, applied mathematics, growth hacking, IoT).

Vincent developed and deployed new techniques such as hidden decision trees (for scoring and fraud detection), automated tagging, indexing and clustering of large document repositories, black-box, scalable, simple, noise-resistant regression known as the Jackknife Regression (fit for black-box, real-time or automated data processing), model-free confidence intervals, bucketisation, combinatorial feature selection algorithms, detecting causation not correlations, and generally speaking, the invention of a set of consistent robust statistical / machine learning techniques that can be understood, implemented, interpreted, leveraged and fine-tuned by the non-expert. Vincent also invented many synthetic metrics (for instance, predictive power and L1 goodness-of-fit) that work better than old-fashioned stats, especially on badly-behaved sparse big data. Some of these techniques have been implemented in a Map-Reduce Hadoop-like environment. Some are concerned with identifying true signal in an ocean of noisy data.

Vincent is a former post-doctorate of Cambridge University and the National Institute of Statistical Sciences. He was among the finalists at the Wharton School Business Plan Competition and at the Belgian Mathematical Olympiads. Vincent has published 40 papers in statistical journals (including Journal of Number Theory, IEEE Pattern analysis and Machine Intelligence, Journal of the Royal Statistical Society, Series B), a Wiley book on data science, and is an invited speaker at international conferences. Vincent also created the first IoT platform to automate growth and content generation for digital publishers, using a system of API's for machine-to-machine communications, involving Hootsuite, Twitter, and Google Analytics.

Vincent's profile is accessible at http://bit.ly/1jWEfMP and includes top publications, presentations, and work experience with Visa, Microsoft, eBay, NBC, Wells Fargo, and other organisations.

Big Data's Most Influential Rock Stars: 10 Must-Follow Leaders

This list of hand-picked leaders was compiled by Wojtek Aleksander, from GetResponse.

Other bigger lists (sometimes created by robots) can be found here and are usually based on your Klout Score, which in my opinion is not accurate. The list in uestion is truly original and I would even add, somewhat unexpected, as you won't find Bernard Marr, Kirk Borne and other well known gurus.…

50 IoT (Internet of Things) Predictions for 2016

IoT and data science are intertwined, as sensor data from wearables, transportation or healthcare systems, manufacturing and engineering, needs to be collected, refined, aggregated and processed by automated data science systems to deliver insights and value.

We posted a list of interesting articles late last year on this topic, and some IoT data sets…
