Today, enterprises recognize the critical value of advanced analytics within the organization and they are implementing data democratization initiatives. As these initiatives evolve, new roles emerge in the organization. The newest of these analysis-related roles is the 'analytics translator'. As the enterprise considers the relevance of this new role within the business, it is important to understand the responsibilities of an Analytics…Continue

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…Continue

This article covers far more than the title suggests. It is written in simple English and accessible to quantitative professionals from a variety of backgrounds. Deep mathematical and data science research (including a result about the randomness of Pi, which is just a particular case) are presented here, without using arcane terminology or complicated equations.
The topic discussed here, under a unified framework, is at the intersection of mathematics, probability theory, chaotic…Continue

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…Continue
