Bridging the divide: Business users and machine learning experts

Bridging the divide: Business users and machine learning experts

As tools for advanced analytics become more accessible, data scientist’s roles will evolve. Most media stories emphasize a need for expertise in algorithms and quantitative techniques (machine learning, statistics, probability), and yet the reality is that expertise in advanced algorithms is just one aspect of industrial data science. During [...]

LinkedIn Open-Sources FeatureFu, A Toolkit For Building Machine Learning Models

LinkedIn Open-Sources FeatureFu, A Toolkit For Building Machine Learning Models

LinkedIn today announced that it is open-sourcing an internal tool called FeatureFu. The FeatureFu toolkit is meant to make it easier for developers to build their machine learning models around statistical modeling and decision engines. The idea here is to take LinkedIn’s knowledge around “feature engineering” and make it accessible to [...]

Top 10 Data Mining Algorithms, Demystified

Top 10 Data Mining Algorithms, Demystified

Today, I’m going to explain in plain English the top 10 most influential data mining algorithms as voted on by 3 separate panels in this survey paper. Once you know what they are, how they work, what they do and where you can find them, my hope is you’ll have this blog post as a springboard to learn even more about data mining. What are [...]

How to choose algorithms for Microsoft Azure Machine Learning

How to choose algorithms for Microsoft Azure Machine Learning

The answer to the question "What machine learning algorithm should I use?" is always "It depends." It depends on the size, quality, and nature of the data. It depends what you want to do with the answer. It depends on how the math of the algorithm was translated into instructions for the computer you are using. And it depends on how much time you [...]

Machine learning selects world’s next top models

Machine learning selects world’s next top models

Computers do casting director’s thinking. US researchers have trained machine learning algorithms to accurately predict the next batch of female models to grace the world’s top fashion runways. In a paper (pdf) to be presented at CSCW 2016 early next year, three Indiana University academics used data from the 2015 spring/summer season to [...]
