A Data Science Central Community
This blog takes a closer look at the concept of privacy-preserving synthetic data. It answers the question “what is synthetic data” and looks at the origin of synthetic data in the context of data privacy. It also presents one way of generating privacy-preserving synthetic data and its benefits for organizations.…Continue

One of the main challenges in data science projects is managing stakeholder expectations. Often those in the business will have little idea of the complexity and timescales of seemingly simple tasks.
Consider sourcing data. In some organisations, with a non-collaborative culture, something as simple as getting a file of data from IT can take weeks. Add on time to check the data, spend time with someone to explain it, handle revisions and…Continue

Analyzing the quality of your software is crucial to any business. The process appears towards the end of your software development lifecycle but indeed decides the fate of it. In other words, quality analysis demonstrates a process in which the actual output of the software is tested with its expected output. There are a variety of test inputs that are used in the process of quality analysis so that the product sheds light on the actual truth of where it…Continue

Properly implemented Machine Learning (ML) models can have a positive effect on organizational efficiency. It is first necessary to understand how these models are created, how they function, and how they are put into production.
The Definition of a Machine Learning Model
When a computer is presented with questions within a particular domain, a machine learning model will run an algorithm that will enable it to resolve those questions. These algorithms are not…Continue
Python was introduced in 1991 by Guido Van Rossum as a high level, general purpose language. Even today, it supports multiple programming paradigms including procedural, object oriented and functional. Soon, it became one of the most popular languages in the industry, and in fact is the very language that influence Ruby and Swift. Even TIOBE Index reports mentions python as the third most popular…Continue

It will be unwise to expect you will generate lot of sales if you have significant amount of web traffic. It alone cannot be of much help in this matter. You will need to track the website metrics properly in order to take necessary measure to convert the traffic into your business prospects. You will need to analyze your website from time to time to ensure that it is not only accessible to the users but also provides all necessary guidance to show them the right way to make a…Continue

We propose simple solutions to important problems that all data scientists face almost every day. In short, a toolbox for the handyman, useful to busy professionals in any field.
1. Eliminating sample size effects. Many statistics, such as correlations or R-squared, depend on the sample size, making it difficult to…Continue

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…Continue

Graph are meant to be seen
The third layer of graph technology that we discuss in this article is the front-end layer, the graph visualization one. The visualization of information has been the support of many types of analysis, including Social Network Analysis. For decades, visual representations have helped researchers,…

The emergence of alternative data as a key enabler in expanding credit delivery and financial inclusion is unmistakable.
The saying that the only thing that is constant is change, is attributed to Heraclitus, the Greek Philosopher. This is so very relevant today in the way lenders use technology and scoring solutions to understand the credit worthiness of applicants. Credit Risk Management has come a long way from the days when banks used just one credit score cut off to…Continue

This is another interesting problem, off-the-beaten-path. It ends up with a formula to compute the integral of a function, based on its derivatives solely.
For simplicity, I'll start with some notations used in the context of matrix theory, familiar to everyone: T(f) = g, where f and g are vectors, and T a square matrix. The notation T(f) represents the product between the matrix T, and the vector f. Now, imagine that the…Continue
Organizations across industries are adopting graph analytics to reinforce their anti-fraud programs. In this post, we examine three types of fraud graph analytics can help investigators combat: insurance fraud, credit card fraud, VAT fraud.
In many areas, fraud investigators have at their disposal large datasets in which clues are hidden. These clues are left behind by…
