Simple Solution to Feature Selection Problems

We discuss a new approach for selecting features from a large set of features, in an unsupervised machine learning framework. In supervised learning such as linear regression or supervised clustering, it is possible to test the predicting power of a set of features (also called independent variables by statisticians, or predictors) using metrics such as goodness of fit with the response (the dependent variable), for instance using the R-squared coefficient. This makes the process of feature…

Top 20 Python libraries for data science in 2018

Python continues to take leading positions in solving data science tasks and challenges. Last year we made a blog post overviewing the Python’s libraries that proved to be the most helpful at that moment. This year, we expanded our list with new libraries and gave a fresh look to the ones we already talked about, focusing on the updates that have been made during the year.…

Scale-Invariant Clustering and Regression

The impact of a change of scale, for instance using years instead of days as the unit of measurement for one variable in a clustering problem, can be dramatic. It can result in a totally different cluster structure. Frequently, this is not a desirable property, yet it is rarely mentioned in textbooks. I think all clustering software should state in their user guide, that the algorithm is sensitive to scale.

We illustrate the problem here, and propose a scale-invariant methodology for…

Is Model Bias a Threat to Equal and Fair Treatment? Maybe, Maybe Not.

New article by Bill Vorhies.

Summary:  There is a great hue and cry about the danger of bias in our predictive models when applied to high significance events like who gets a loan, insurance, a good school assignment, or bail.  It’s not as simple as it seems and here we try to take a more nuanced look.  The result is not as threatening as many headlines make it seem.…
