Deep Dive into Polynomial Regression and Overfitting

In this article, we show that the issue with polynomial regression is not over-fitting, but numerical precision. Even if done right, numerical precision still remains an insurmountable challenge. We focus here on step-wise polynomial regression, which is supposed to be more stable than the traditional model. In step-wise regression, we estimate one coefficient at a time, using the classic least square technique. …See More

AI with Pyramids of Self Programmable Gates

Guest blog post by David Enríquez Arriano. For more information or to get higher pictures resolution, contact the author (see contact information at the bottom of this article.)IntroductionThis is a different approach to solve the AI problem. It is a cognitive math based on pyramids built with self-programming logic gates through learning.A Boolean polynomial associated with a given truth table can be implemented with electronic logic gates. These circuits have pyramidal structures. Then I…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.

Mathematical Olympiads for Undergrad Students

Posted on May 25, 2018 at 9:00am 0 Comments

Mathematical Olympiads are popular among high school students. However, there is nothing similar for college students, except maybe IMC. Even IMC is not popular. It focuses mostly on the same kind of problems as high school Olympiads, and you can not participate if you are over 23 years old. In addition, it is organized by country, as opposed to globally, thus favoring countries with a large population. Topics such as…

The First Things you Should Learn as a Data Scientist - Not what you Think

Posted on May 24, 2018 at 9:15pm 0 Comments

The list below is a (non-comprehensive) selection of what I believe should be taught first, in data science classes, based on 30 years of business experience. This is a follow up to my article Why logistic regression should be taught last.

I am not sure whether these topics below are even discussed in data camps or college…

5 Tips How to Write Data Analysis Plan

Posted on May 13, 2018 at 5:30pm 0 Comments

With a data analysis plan, you know what you’re going to do when you actually sit down to do the analysis of the data you’ve gathered. It’s a vitally important thing for you to have, as it will guide how you’re going to collect your data. After all, it’s very difficult to add in new variables afterward.

For that reason, you want to make sure you’ve created your plan beforehand so that you can be sure that you’re asking all the questions you need to and you know what you’re going to…
