Case Study

How Artificial Intelligence is Redefining the Future of Work


Oncology teams currently review cancer patient cases and studies themselves, working diligently to develop treatment strategies. After reading twenty-five million medical studies and trials (its first week on the job, mind you) and scanning the internet for additional trial information, Watson was put to the test, analyzing one thousand actual oncology cases alongside oncology review teams. This announcement opens new horizons for their employees, as well as another opportunity to develop Watson through actual case studies. "The system can be utilized to drive key insights from massive amounts of information, and it can learn how to present it in a useful way as it learns."

Ultra-Narrowband Optimization


This paper proposes the first experimental architecture designed for the optimization of UNB networks. The proposed architecture enables context data collection, context model development, optimization and transmission control using rapid experimentation cycle approach enabled by flow based programming using Node-RED. Through preliminary results, we show the feasibility of PHY and MAC context data collection, point out challenges that are specific for UNB context modeling and discuss options for optimization. All datasets, context modeling and optimization tools used in the paper will be released as open source.

Stacking models for improved predictions: A case study for housing prices


I will use three different regression methods to create predictions (XGBoost, Neural Networks, and Support Vector Regression) and stack them up to produce a final prediction. I trained three level 1 models: XGBoost, neural network, support vector regression. Graphically, once can see that the circled data point is a prediction which is worse in XGBoost (which is the best model when trained on all the training data), but neural network and support vector regression does better for that specific point. For example, below are the RMSE values on the holdout data (rmse1: XGBoost, rmse2: Neural Network, rmse3: Support Vector Regression), for 20 different random 10-folds created.

Half Of People Who Encounter Artificial Intelligence Don't Even Realize It


I've reported on the last two years of IBM's World of Watson conferences, and today I want to share with you the latest information from the Pegasystems annual users' conference, known as PegaWorld, which took place this week in Las Vegas. This year's focus was on AI, and many of the speakers shared real case studies about how AI is being used to transform the way we do business and how it impacts the customer experience (CX). The study also revealed that 70 percent of consumers surveyed have a fear of AI, and 25 percent of those people fear that AI can take over the world. They talked about how their use of AI is impacting customers in ways that make doing business with them easier and more convenient than ever before.

Book: Fundamentals of Machine Learning for Predictive Data Analytics: Algorithms, Worked Examples, and Case Studies (MIT Press)


This introductory textbook offers a detailed and focused treatment of the most important machine learning approaches used in predictive data analytics, covering both theoretical concepts and practical applications. After discussing the trajectory from data to insight to decision, the book describes four approaches to machine learning: information-based learning, similarity-based learning, probability-based learning, and error-based learning. Finally, the book considers techniques for evaluating prediction models and offers two case studies that describe specific data analytics projects through each phase of development, from formulating the business problem to implementation of the analytics solution. The book, informed by the authors' many years of teaching machine learning, and working on predictive data analytics projects, is suitable for use by undergraduates in computer science, engineering, mathematics, or statistics; by graduate students in disciplines with applications for predictive data analytics; and as a reference for professionals.

5 Free Statistics eBooks You Need to Read This Autumn


You'll work with a case study throughout the book to help you learn the entire data analysis process – from collecting data and generating statistics to identifying patterns and testing hypotheses. This book covers the essential exploratory techniques for summarizing data with R. Exploratory data analysis is a key part of the data science process because it allows you to sharpen your question and refine your modelling strategies to develop more complex statistical models. Some of the topics covered are making exploratory graphs, principles of analytic graphics, plotting systems and graphics devices in R, clustering methods, and dimension reduction techniques. Topics covered include probability, random variables, expectations, variability, distributions, limits and confidence intervals, testing, p-values, power, Bootstrapping and permutation tests.

R Spatial Representation


Spatial Visualization Using R: One of the less understood aspects of R is in spatial data visualization. The below article will outline two case studies on using R to spatially visualize data. The second case study is using Home Insurance Rates data by vHomeInsurance, and using GGMap, to show average home insurance prices for some of the most populated cities in the US. The map will show more expensive home insurance cities in bigger circles and less expensive cities in smaller circles.
