As a big promoter of lifelong learning, I spend a lot of time well… Learning. For the past few years Data Science has provided me with a constant reason to stay engaged, to be constantly on the lookout for the next great algorithm, library, study or use case. I also…


The last few weeks, people have been asking me a lot about how to become a company that can leverage Machine Learning and AI. This can be a complex issue and hence, difficult to explain. …


You might be thinking, I already know programming in Python, and I am absolutely amazing at Pandas. Why would I need to learn another language such as SQL?

Today, the Road to Data Science takes a different turn, instead of another story about my experiences, so you can have a smoother journey, I wanted to talk about where I believe data science, and mostly data scientists should be going.

First off, a bit of background. As some of…


Previously, we created an Attrition Risk formula. Now it is time to build a model with it.

We will keep it simple to start with and build from there in future articles, so it does not become overwhelming. …


On the last story, I mentioned some of my favorite python libraries and why I believe they are important. For some of you, who are already well in your journey to learn data science, you may have noted I left out one of the most important ones out: matplotlib. …


On my last article from a couple of days back, I decided to start by building a risk formula using the information from the original studies we found, others I have spent the last days reading (and will share where I can in this article. The reason to do this…
