Supervised learning in disguise: the truth about unsupervised learning

One of the first lessons you’ll receive in machine learning is that there are two broad categories: supervised and unsupervised learning. Supervised learning is usually explained as the one to which you provide the correct answers, training data, and the machine learns the patterns to apply to new data. Unsupervised learning is (apparently) where the machine figures out the correct answer on its own.

Supposedly, unsupervised learning can discover something new that has not been found…

What Kind of OLAP Do We Really Need?

The narrow-sensed OLAP

OLAP is part and parcel of a BI application. As the name suggests, the word is an acronym for online analytical processing. Users, frontline employees, to be precise, are responsible for performing various types of data processing online.  

But, the concept of OLAP tends to be used in a very narrow sense. It has almost become an equivalence of multidimensional analysis. Based on a prebuilt data cubic, the analysis performs summarization…
