The Fate of Feature Engineering: No Longer Necessary, or Much Easier?

In this contributed article, editorial consultant Jelani Harper believes that features are the definitive data traits enabling machine learning models to accurately issue predictions and prescriptions. In this respect, they’re the foundation of the statistical branch of AI. However, the effort, time, and resources required to engender those features may become obsolete by simply learning them with graph embedding so data scientists are no longer reliant on hard to find, labeled training data.

ACM Issues Computing Competencies for Undergraduate Data Science Curricula

Recognizing the explosive growth of data science as a field, as well as the demand for data science training at the undergraduate level, a Data Science Task Force convened by the Association for Computing Machinery’s Education Board recently released “Computing Competencies for Undergraduate Data Science Curricula.” The ACM report seeks to define what the computing/computational contributions are to this new field, as well as to provide guidance on computing-specific competencies in data science for departments offering such programs of study at the undergraduate level.

The Next-Level of Operationalizing Machine Learning: Real-time Data Streaming into Data Science Environments

In this contributed article, Adi Hirschtein, VP Product at Iguazio, discusses the next-level of operationalizing machine learning: real-time data streaming into data science environments. New Stack’s Streaming Data and the Future Tech Stack report (2019) show a 500% percent increase in the number of companies processing data in real-time for AI/ML use cases. And experts posit a more massive increase in the number of companies following this trend as we approach 2021.
