Book: Data Mining for Dummies

My comment: The Appendix B on Data Mining Software (vendors) lists a few unknown tools and is missing several important ones (Pivotal, Tibco, Splunk, HortonWorks, Lavastorm etc.) You will find a more comprehensive list in my book listed at the bottom. Similarly, chapter 19 on "Ten great resources for Data Miners" is biased, featuring blogs for which she regularly writes, and missing bigger ones like Data Science Central or ACM.Anyway, here's the description, from Wiley's website:Data mining is…See More

Why the human species hasn't produced trillionaires yet?

I just did a quick computation. Let's say that you are born in extreme poverty, and your net worth (yearly revenue and assets) is just $1 by the time you reach 20 years old. Let's say you think and work (on average) 1% faster than the average guy - in short producing just 1% more valuable output than the average guy, each day. Let's say that you leverage half of this advantage for your own growth (to produce compound return), and the other half for your quality of life (nice restaurants and…

How much is big data compressible? An interesting theorem.

I am doing some research to compress data available as tables (rows and columns, or cubes) more efficiently. This is the reverse data science approach: instead of receiving compressed data and applying statistical techniques to extract insights, here, we are looking at uncompressed data, extract all possible insights, and eliminate everything but the insights, to compress the data.…
