New Book: Classification and Regression In a Weekend (in Python)

We have added a new free book in our selection exclusively for DSC members. See the first entry below, to get started with machine learning with Python.1. Book: Classification and Regression In a WeekendThis tutorial began as a series of weekend workshops created by Ajit Jaokar and Dan Howarth. The idea was to work with a specific (longish) program such that we explore as much of it as possible in one weekend. This book is an attempt to take this idea online. The best way to use this book is to…See More

Confidence Intervals Without Pain, with Excel

We propose a simple model-free solution to compute any confidence interval and to extrapolate these intervals beyond the observations available in your data set. In addition we propose a mechanism  to sharpen the confidence intervals, to reduce their width by an order of magnitude. The methodology works with any estimator (mean, median, variance, quantile, correlation and so on) even when the data set violates the classical requirements necessary to make traditional statistical techniques work.…See More

Re-sampling: Amazing Results and Applications

This crash course features a new fundamental statistics theorem -- even more important than the central limit theorem -- and a new set of statistical rules and recipes. We discuss concepts related to determining the optimum sample size, the optimum k in k-fold cross-validation, bootstrapping, new re-sampling techniques, simulations, tests of hypotheses, confidence intervals, and statistical inference using a unified, robust, simple approach with easy formulas, efficient algorithms and…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.

Some Fun with Gentle Chaos, the Golden Ratio, and Stochastic Number Theory

Posted on April 25, 2019 at 7:30am 0 Comments

So many fascinating and deep results have been written about the number (1 + SQRT(5)) / 2 and its related sequence - the Fibonacci numbers - that it would take years to read all of them. This number has been studied both for its applications (population growth, architecture) and its mathematical properties, for over 2,000 years. It is still a topic of active research.…

Causality – The Next Most Important Thing in AI/ML

Posted on April 24, 2019 at 7:30pm 0 Comments

Summary:  Finally there are tools that let us transcend ‘correlation is not causation’ and identify true causal factors and their relative strengths in our models.  This is what prescriptive analytics was meant to be.

 

Just when I thought we’d figured it all out,…

Dear Vincent,

I want to let you know that appreciate your posts. Your excursions in data science, number theory, probabilities, experimental mathematics, etc. are thoughtful, provocative, on occasions infuriating opinionated, and never dull. I also admire how prolific you are. 

Here's to many more blog entries,

Victor

Thanks also for the invite. I do have a question about data mining methods and tools. I have a specific situation in mind at work, and would like some professional feedback. Anyone willing to lend an ear and opinion..? thanks...rob

Hey Vincent,

 

Sometime back I saw internship material on your site. I am working in the Analytics Industry and looking for improving my technical skills. Please let me know in case you guys are offering any internships which I can pursue along with my job.

Regards,

Rishi
