From concept to value — the machine learning curve

Advanced analytics is an important part of artificial intelligence (AI). Machine learning, or the ability of computers to learn from data, rather than through programming rules, means that more complex problems can be addressed than would otherwise be possible. It is significantly easier to supply lots of data and examples

Interpret model predictions with partial dependence and individual conditional expectation plots

Continuing our series on model interpretability, this post explains two methods for plotting variables that can give insight into how a model is working. Assessing a model`s accuracy usually is not enough for a data scientist who wants to know more about how a model is working. Often data scientists

Recurrent neural networks: An essential tool for machine learning

Sequence models, especially recurrent neural network (RNN) and similar variants, have gained tremendous popularity over the last few years because of their unparalleled ability to handle unstructured sequential data. The reason these models are called “recurrent” is that they work with data that occurs in a sequence, such as text

Cómo la analítica equilibra precios competitivos y permite rentabilidad sana

Todo se basa en una sencilla teoría económica: cuando los precios de los productos aumentan, la gente no está dispuesta a pagarlos y, en consecuencia, la demanda se va a pique; evidentemente, sucede el efecto contrario cuando se reducen. No obstante, el mecanismo que se activa al modificar dicho valor

Anticipar y no reaccionar, las ventajas de una cadena de suministro efectiva

Sábado por la tarde. Un aficionado al futbol visita la tienda de conveniencia más cercana para comprar todo lo necesario para disfrutar el partido de su equipo favorito: botanas, comida, bebidas. Recorre los pasillos, pero no encuentra todo lo que quiere. Pregunta al dependiente; éste le responde que algunos de

Antibiotic resistance is rising to dangerously high levels

The use of antibiotics is growing rapidly. Excessive or inappropriate prescriptions of antibiotics and lack of follow-up on treatments results in antimicrobial resistance. The antimicrobials become resistant, and therefore they do not act on antibiotics as expected. This makes treatment ineffective, and already now 20-50 percent of all antibiotic prescriptions

Data science education: matching up expectations and reality

The SAS Data Science and Advanced Analytics Forum brings together businesses and universities, and at a recent event, universities described courses that focused on providing students with technical skills and competencies to handle data, together with some understanding of how data scientists use software. Businesses, however, emphasised the importance of

Minority Report risk-based monitoring: Find the hidden potential

Most of us have probably seen Steven Spielberg's 2002 sci-fi movie Minority Report, starring Tom Cruise. In an “absurd” future society, a special police unit hunts future criminals before they commit their crimes and the illegal activity takes place. The police use sci-fi tools, such as “pre-visualisation,” to stop the lawbreakers
