1.8 Zettabytes, or to put it another way, 31 billion fully loaded (64gb) iPad’s – an incomprehensible amount of data that represents the estimated size of our digital universe today. To give this a little more perspective, it has been estimated that if we stored all the words ever spoken since the dawn of time, by every human, we’d need 0.0048 of a Zettabyte - just a smidgen of what we’ve already created to date.
You’re probably getting the message. Data is big, abundant and no doubt…Continue

It will be interesting to see how highway patrols and local police respond to being…Continue

Although I use both R and RapidMiner in my work, I have been “late to the party” in installing RapidMiner’s R extension on my Windows machine. The primary reason being that over time I have built a regular workflow that uses these two tools separately. Also, I am one of those folks who don’t go looking for trouble. After reading several postings on how after installing the extension users couldn’t get RapidMiner started again, I figured I should let this integration fad pass or at least wait…Continue
Most banks are going to add small fees e.g. for debit card ($3/month in my case). Last time I went to my bank, I had this strange conversation:
