Silicon Valley siphons our data like oil. But the deepest drilling has just begun

The Guardian

Customers in the UK will soon find out. Recent reports suggest that three of the country's largest supermarket chains are rolling out surge-pricing in select stores. This means that prices will rise and fall over the course of the day in response to demand. Buying lunch at lunchtime will be like ordering an Uber at rush hour. This may sound pretty drastic, but far more radical changes are on the horizon.

23-bit Metaknowledge Template Towards Big Data Knowledge Discovery and Management

arXiv.org Artificial Intelligence

The global influence of Big Data is not only growing but seemingly endless. The trend is leaning towards knowledge that is attained easily and quickly from massive pools of Big Data. Today we are living in the technological world that Dr. Usama Fayyad and his distinguished research fellows discussed in the introductory explanations of Knowledge Discovery in Databases (KDD) predicted nearly two decades ago. Indeed, they were precise in their outlook on Big Data analytics. In fact, the continued improvement of the interoperability of machine learning, statistics, database building and querying fused to create this increasingly popular science- Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery. The next generation computational theories are geared towards helping to extract insightful knowledge from even larger volumes of data at higher rates of speed. As the trend increases in popularity, the need for a highly adaptive solution for knowledge discovery will be necessary. In this research paper, we are introducing the investigation and development of 23 bit-questions for a Metaknowledge template for Big Data Processing and clustering purposes. This research aims to demonstrate the construction of this methodology and proves the validity and the beneficial utilization that brings Knowledge Discovery from Big Data.


What are some good courses to take in Data Science in San Francisco?

@machinelearnbot

Both Udacity and Coursera offer career tracks for data scientist. These are packages of 9 courses, where you learn R, machine learning, data cleaning, etc. So location ("in SF") shouldn't be a limiting factor to get access to education. Universities organizing the courses are Stanford, Minnesota, Johns Hopkins, etc...
