In the current artificial intelligence (AI) media storm, the deep learning hype is especially strong. Let's explore how these terms relate and why they're so hot right now. First, deep learning is not synonymous with AI or even machine learning. Artificial Intelligence is a broad field which aims to "automate cognitive processes."
Dementia describes different brain disorders that trigger a loss of brain function. These conditions are all usually progressive and eventually severe.

Predictive modelling solutions typically rely on the availability of good quality data and subsequent models which are estimated in advance using historical data. For example, a credit scoring framework to predict propensity of customer default requires the use of clean processed transactional and demographic data. Datasets used for this type
Ensemble models have been used extensively in credit scoring applications and other areas because they are considered to be more stable and, more importantly, predict better than single classifiers (see Lessmann et al., 2015). They are also known to reduce model bias and variance (Myoung - Jong et al., 2006;
With my first open source software (OSS) experience over a decade ago, I was ecstatic. It was amazing to learn how easy it was to download the latest version on my personal computer, with no initial license fee. I was quickly able to analyse datasets using various statistical methods. Organisations
