Do you have your head in the clouds?

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…

Cross selling campaigns aim at selling additional products to existing customers. 

A cross selling model estimates the propensity to uptake an add-on product for each scored customer.



A cross selling model can be built on the results of a test campaign to analyze respondents and identify customers with increased purchase potentials.



An easier approach which does not require the running of a test campaign, is to analyze the profile of customers who acquired the product of… Continue

Analytics used to avoid traffic tickets and DUI arrests

Radar detector company Escort invented a new technique to help drivers avoid police traps, based on data mining and crowd sourcing. In a nutshell, car drivers use a mobile app on their cell phone to report any police trap or red-light camera, with just one click that will automatically provide location of the trap on a social network and alert other drivers using the mobile app in question. 

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

Tips on Installing RapidMiner’s R extension on a Windows Machine

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…

How to avoid new bank fees: solution

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:

  • I asked documents about the various types of accounts that they offer, as they suggested that I switch to a more upscale type of account, where there would be no fees
  • Instead of receiving the documents, I was forced to spend 15 minutes listening to a bank manager about the benefits of the upscale account. My hourly rate being…

How do you become a data scientist?

I have read several articles on the subject, but none of the authors were really “Data Scientist” and they admit that, so I thought it was time that something was written by an actual Data Scientist.

First off, let’s make sure you understand that there’s lots of college involved, no way around that one. If you noticed a lady in the 2nd row, 3rd from the left had a mole on her nose in the last commercial you watched, you might have what it takes, even if you hadn’t thought of…

Social Media is a wonderful way to introduce potential consumers with your product and or services. But doing a little research 1st, will assist you in improving the future of your…
