Hooked on data science: gamification drives engagement among students and trainees

While studying business intelligence as an undergraduate student at business school HEC Montreal, Camille Duchesne encountered Cortex, an analytics simulation that pits participants against each other to develop the most accurate models for a particular task. In this case, the simulation supports a fictional charity by predicting which subjects from

Money laundering is a growing threat within the insurance industry. The regulatory framework within banking is adding stronger controls and governance processes which will encourage launderers to seek alternative areas to launder funds.

Finite-difference derivatives of vector-valued functions

I previously showed how to use SAS to compute finite-difference derivatives for smooth scalar-valued functions of several variables. You can use the NLPFDD subroutine in SAS/IML software to approximate the gradient vector (first derivatives) and the Hessian matrix (second derivatives). The computation uses finite-difference derivatives to approximate the derivatives. The
