LIME Can Make You Better at Machine Learning
LIME is a crucial machine learning tool that can tackle one of the biggest issues in machine learning is the issue of interpretability. You can think of interpretability as explaining how and why a model makes predictions. In this age of the super black box model, it may be... Read more
What lies beyond Big Data Analysis?
Beyond big data analysis lies an innovation known as cognitive analysis, which is capable of providing insights with minimum human support. Information accumulating from disparate sources, differing in formats, is known as big data. This data is essential for organizations as it is capable of providing intuitive insights that...

Understanding Neural Network Bias Values
In my other articles, I have discussed the many different neural network hyper parameters that contribute to optimal success. While hyper parameters are crucial  for training successful algorithms, the importance of neural network bias values are not to be forgotten as well. In this article I’ll delve into the... Read more
Bitcoin Trade Signals
What will Bitcoin do When asked what the stock market will do, J.P Morgan replied “It will fluctuate.”. If we could hypothetically ask Mr Morgan another question, very popular these days, I bet his answer would be “It will fluctuate a loot”. Of course, the question is about the most... Read more

Generational changes in support for gun laws
This is the fourth article in a series about changes in support for gun control laws over the last 50 years. In the first article I looked at data from the General Social Survey and found that young adults are less likely than previous generations to support gun control. In the second... Read more
Cognitive Machine Learning (2): Uncertain Thoughts
She pined in thought,  And with a green and yellow melancholy She sat like Patience on a monument,  Smiling at grief. Was not this love indeed? In King Lear, Shakespeare stirs a sense of self-consciousness by invoking Patience, sitting up high; isolated in her thoughts;... Read more
To solve machine learning problems, there is a wide range of different techniques and methods required, some suited better than others. As a data scientist it can be difficult to encapsulate all of them, and choose which work best for specific scenarios. If one is starting out in this... Read more
You might remember that ODSC is participating in Kaggle’s March Madness this year, so we thought we’d give you an update. Here’s Open Data Science’s March Madness bracket breakdown. After 48 games and millions of busted brackets, the 2018 NCAA Men’s Tourney has been whittled down to the Sweet... Read more
How the Twitter Timeline Works (and 6 Simple Tactics to Increase Your Reach)
Understanding the social media algorithms is important to social media marketers, especially since it can heavily impact a brand’s reach on social media. We’ve talked about the Facebook News Feed algorithm and the Instagram Feed algorithm. This time, we would love to dive into the Twitter timeline algorithm. Up until 2015, the Twitter timeline...
