OnCorps today unveiled its Adaptive Decision Analytics platform that intelligently engages users and nudges them to make better decisions.
In a policy statement issued today, the American Statistical Association (ASA) stated statistics is “foundational to data science”—along with database management and distributed and parallel systems—and its use in this emerging field empowers researchers to extract knowledge and obtain better results from Big Data and other analytics projects.
The pace at which the world creates data will never be this slow again. And much of this new data we’re creating is unstructured, textual data. Emails. Word documents. News articles. Blogs. Reviews.

Its customers. Its weaknesses and its opportunities.
I was happy to receive a review copy of book employing a very unique approach for teaching mathematics, “The Manga Guide to Linear Algebra,” published by No Starch Press. This is a comic book, perfect for new data scientists! The book is great for newbies because it clearly spells out each minute step in performing calculations involving vectors, matrices, determinants, linear transformations, kernels, eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
