Now that data's going really big, what's next? | Forbes

By Rajeshekara V. Maiya, Infosys.

Each year, we add two billion hexabytes (that’s two billion billion bytes) of data just in social conversation. American companies, across 15 sectors, with more than 1,000 employees each store on an average more data than the U.S. Library of Congress.

Analytics used to ban texting while driving, or drunk driving, are flawed

It is certainly true that texting while driving (by young driver) is dangerous, and increases the risk of accidents. However how do we assess car crash risks?

  • Are young drivers better at multitasking, and causes mild crish when texting because they drive more slowly?
  • What about training them on minimizing risks while texting and driving, since making it illegal does not work?
  • Likewise, you can train alcoholics to drive better (since they will never stop driving…

Power Real Polynomial to approximate functions: The Gradient Method

In the real world rarely a problem can be solved using just a single algorithm, more often a solution is a chain of algorithms where the output of the former is the input for the follower.

But you know that quite often machine learning algorithms return functions almost always extremely complex, and they don’t fit directly in the next step of your strategy.
In these conditions, it is really helpful the trick of the function approximation, that is, we reduce the complexity…

Leveraging Visual Analysis to Detect Medical Fraud

Discovering fraudulent trends and patterns within medical data is the modern day equivalent of finding a needle in a haystack. Private medical and property/causality insurers as well as government agencies are tasked with discovering and preventing medical fraud from within millions of submitted bills daily.

With health care and medical fraud costing consumers over $100 billion dollars in the United States alone, there has never been a more important time for…

Statistical technology used to detect new planets

This article was published in many publications / newspapers over the last few days, see e.g. http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2011/12/06/many-earths-out-there-nearly-all-kepler-planets-may-be-real-deal/.

What's very interesting is that planet detection is based entirely on statistical technology: the planets can't be seen no matter how powerful your…

The Search For Analysts To Make Sense Of 'Big Data' | NPR

DJ Patil explains a visualization of a person's LinkedIn network, where different groups of contacts are illustrated by different colors. Patil developed big data projects for LinkedIn — like algorithms to determine whom you might know. He now recruits mathematicians for a venture capital firm.

Has Analyticbridge been attacked by remote terrorists?

We've experienced a number of small Internet problems that were easily fixed, just before Thanksgiving. But there was one attack that looked very weird, and the motivation behind this failed plot is obscure. Most likely, our publication of new material to better and automatically detect scammers on social networks probably triggered the retaliation. We've experienced this type of retaliation in the past, when…

Are Lottery Winning Numbers Really Random?

Most analytic people would agree that lottery is a tax on the innumerate. However, for this statement to be true, we need to assume that winning numbers (and any combination of digits from these numbers) are truly random. If not, of course smart people are going to find and devise algorithms to increase their odds of winning, and/or will try to sell their magic "winning numbers" to idiots. …

Neural Nets Tips and Tricks: add recall Output neuron

...

As mentioned, in many cases the customization of algorithms is the only way to achieve the target, but sometimes, some tricks can help to improve the learning even without changes of learning strategy!
Consider for example our XOR problem solved through neural networks.
Let's see how we can reduce considerably the epochs required to train the net.
