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

As I learn about data privacy, I’m starting to realize how large the ecosystem is. I focused here on a category that spans across the data privacy landscape, Privacy Enhancing Technologies (PETs). In the post, I cover:…

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
We all know that deep learning algorithms improve the accuracy of AI applications to great extent. But this accuracy comes with requiring heavy computational processing units such as GPU for developing deep learning models. Many of the machine learning developers cannot afford GPU as they are very costly and find this as a roadblock for learning and developing Deep learning applications. To help the AI, machine learning developers Google has released…

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

Most people think data science is smart people doing very smart stuff. Well that’s not it. Data science is just another subject involving its own bit of subtle complexities that has to be handled with knowledge and an innovative approach. JUST LIKE COOKING.
Cooking is art and science. So is Analytics. Both start from getting the right ingredients. No matter how many spices and cooking techniques you apply, the dish won’t…Continue

"Information is the oil of the 21st century, and analytics is the combustion engine" Peter Sondergaard, SVP, Gartner Research
In analytics, we retrieve information from various data sources; it can be structured or unstructured. The biggest challenge here is to retrieve information from unstructured data mainly texts. Here machine learning comes into the picture to overcome this challenge. Different algorithms have been designed in different platforms…Continue

As R programming language becoming popular more and more among data science group, industries, researchers, companies embracing R, going forward I will be writing posts on learning Data science using R. The tutorial course will include topics on data types of R, handling data using R, probability theory, Machine Learning, Supervised – unSupervised learning, Data Visualization using R, etc. Before going further, let’s just see some stats and tidbits on data science and…Continue

I’m going to keep this tutorial light on math, because the goal is just to give a general understanding.
The idea of Monte Carlo methods is this—generate some random samples for some random variable of interest, then use these samples to compute values you’re interested in.
I know, super broad. The truth is Monte Carlo has a ton of different applications. It’s…Continue
Random Forest is a machine learning algorithm used for classification, regression, and feature selection. It's an ensemble technique, meaning it combines the output of one weaker technique in order to get a stronger result.
The weaker technique in this case is a decision tree. Decision trees work by splitting the and re-splitting the data by…Continue

In my last post, I have explained about MSE, today I will explain the variance & bias trade-off, Precision recall trade-off while assessing the model accuracy.
Variance refers to the amount by which the estimated output (f) would change if we estimated it (f) using a different training dataset. Since the training data is used to fit the statistical learning method, different training sets will…

Big Data holds a big promise. But has that promise paid out already? Or are you heading for Big Dollar Disaster? Many take inventory of their data and find out they have terabytes of data lying around. Surely something should be done with that, so here’s how we see a lot of companies going about implementing ‘something’ for their Big Data.

The Voice is a very successful show that runs in 28 countries around the globe. The basic concept in each version is the same: Four famous singers act as coaches. They have to select a team of vocalists through an audition process. The teams compete internally through a process of competitive elimination, until one vocalist per coach enters the Finals. There, the best vocalist of the four is declared 'The…Continue

At BigML, we know what it takes to develop code. One of the things we love is having a sandbox - an environment to play around in, free of charge, while developing our apps. So we hurried to create a free machine learning sandbox. Today we are proud to announce: BigML’s development mode!
Here’s how it works. If you don’t have an account yet,…Continue
