This is s short blog post. And is merely some links I came across this week. https://www.fullstackpython.com/wsgi-servers.html – a great introduction to WSGI servers in python. I hadn’t seen this written up before https://sudhir.io/understanding-connections-pools/ — Long read. This is a thorough and in-depth discussion of how connections and pools work. I must admit that while… Continue reading Some recent reading
I recently caught up with Noelle Saldana and she shared some of her experiences as a Data Scientist and Product Management expert. She’s got a strong technical background and has worked for Pivotal a leading technology consultancy helping Forbes 500 learn how to leverage Machine Learning. She’s recently joined Salesforce where she’ll be wearing a… Continue reading “Much of our day-to-day lives are touched and improved by Data”
I recently put together a survey of over 100 data scientists and analysts. There’ll be a report coming super soon, but before then I wanted to share the infographic. We’ll go into more detail in the report. If you’d like to get access to the report you should sign up here 70 percent of data scientists… Continue reading State of PPL: How are Bayesian methods used in industry?
What is Bayesian Statistics Bayesian Statistics (or Probabilistic Programming) take a more effective and deep approach to perform analysis of any given data and situation. A/B testing is one of the hottest topics on the internet nowadays. In this testing, you simply consider two different groups, A and B, to analyze the performance of both… Continue reading 3 reasons to learn Bayesian Statistics in the new year
One question that is often asked by those who know Machine Learning to me is how do I build a Bayesian Logistic Regression model? If you know how to build a logistic regression model in sklearn or a standard machine learning library it’s quite easy to learn how to do the Bayesian version. In this screencast… Continue reading New Screencast: How do I build a Logistic Regression model the Bayesian way?
You have a problem that you think might need some Bayesian modelling A common question I’m asked is how do you start? In this tutorial I take you from a fresh data set, the data set is an educational dataset. I don’t know anything about the data, and I have no specific domain knowledge. I… Continue reading How to build a bayesian model in 30 minutes?
TLDR: This is an opinionated post, but based on recent trends. What is Probabilistic Programming? I recently wrote a course teaching this. Probabilistic Programming is a newish paradigm used in Quantitative Finance, Biology, Insurance and Sports Analytics – it allows you to build generative models to infer latent parameters and the uncertainty of those parameters. It’s been… Continue reading Why Probabilistic Programming is the next big thing in Data Science
I’m excited to announce the pre-launch of a new project, that I’ve been spending some time thinking about. I’m a core developer of PyMC3 – and that isn’t as impressive as it sounds 🙂 I’m honoured to work with smart people and learn a lot about Probabilistic Programming from it. However it doesn’t mean I… Continue reading Prelaunch – Probabilistic Programming Primer
I saw recently this from the recent Amazon shareholder letter. “These big trends are not that hard to spot…We’re in the middle of an obvious one right now: machine learning & artificial intelligence” — Jeff Bezos One of the hard parts about working professionally on these technologies. Is I take them for granted. So I… Continue reading Working in a major trend – Machine Learning
