Data Science has become the new desirable IT job. While there are only few in the market conversant with the terms like python, machine learning, deep learning and transflow, it is also a fact that these skills are high in demand. Acadgild will transform you into a Data Scientist by delivering hands-on experience in Statistics, Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) using Python, TensorFlow, Apache Spark, R and Tableau. The course provides in-depth understanding of Machine Learning and Deep Learning algorithms such as Linear Regression, Logistic Regression, Naive Bayes Classifiers, Decision Tree and Random Forest, Support Vector Machine, Artificial Neural Networks and more. This 24 weeks long Data Science course has several advantages like 400 total coding hours and experienced industry mentors.

Diabetes is one of deadliest diseases in the world. It is not only a disease but also a creator of different kinds of diseases like heart attack, blindness, kidney diseases, etc. The normal identifying process is that patients need to visit a diagnostic center, consult their doctor, and sit tight for a day or more to get their reports. Moreover, every time they want to get their diagnosis report, they have to waste their money in vain. But with the rise of Machine Learning approaches we have the ability to find a solution to this issue, we have developed a system using data mining which has the ability to predict whether the patient has diabetes or not.

In econometrics and finance, the vector error correction model (VECM) is an important time series model for cointegration analysis, which is used to estimate the long-run equilibrium variable relationships. The traditional analysis and estimation methodologies assume the underlying Gaussian distribution but, in practice, heavy-tailed data and outliers can lead to the inapplicability of these methods. In this paper, we propose a robust model estimation method based on the Cauchy distribution to tackle this issue. In addition, sparse cointegration relations are considered to realize feature selection and dimension reduction. An efficient algorithm based on the majorization-minimization (MM) method is applied to solve the proposed nonconvex problem. The performance of this algorithm is shown through numerical simulations.

One of the topics in data science or statistics I found interesting, but having difficulty understanding is Bayesian analysis. During the course of my General Assembly's Data Science Immersive boot camp, I have had a chance to explore Bayesian statistics, but I really think I need some review and reinforcement. This is my personal endeavour to have a better understanding of Bayesian thinking, and how it can be applied to real-life cases. For this post, I am mainly inspired by a Youtube series by Rasmus Bååth, "Introduction to Bayesian data analysis". He is really good at giving you an intuitive understanding of Bayesian analysis, not by bombarding you with all the complicated formulas, but by providing you with a thought-process of Bayesian statistics. The topic I chose for this post is baseball.
