The real secret to unlocking big data? Math. It’s often said that mathematics is the universal language.
It represents ideas and pure logic, crossing every domain from business to social and physical sciences, and even art. Yet with the advent of more and more (big) data, we have not fully used the power of math as a universal language; instead we’ve focused on more specific concepts like the query and pattern matching to help search information and find relationships in data faster. As technologists, we know all of this ends up as 1s and 0s, but the algorithms behind the data are less of a focus, leaving many problems deep within the lingo and existing practices specific to their domain. The Big Data Conundrum: How to Define It? One of the biggest new ideas in computing is “big data.”
There is unanimous agreement that big data is revolutionizing commerce in the 21st century. When it comes to business, big data offers unprecedented insight, improved decision-making, and untapped sources of profit. Market Basket Analysis: Introduction and Approaches. ‘Big data’ is dead.

This is a guest post by technology executive John De Goes. Anchor Modeler. Mohan Keynote Paper EDBT 2013 Genoa Camera Ready Modified.pdf. A MongoDB Tutorial using C# and ASP.NET MVC. In this post I’m going to create a simple ASP.NET MVC website for a simple blog that uses MongoDB and the offical 10gen C# driver.
MongoDB is no NOSQL database that stores information as Binary JSON (BSON) in documents. I have been working with it now for around 6 months on an enterprise application and so far am loving it. Our application is currently in alpha phase but should be public early next year! Naïve Bayes Classification.
This is the continuation of my series exploring Machine Learning, converting the code samples of “Machine Learning in Action” from Python to F# as I go through the book.
Today’s post covers Chapter 4, which is dedicated to Naïve Bayes classification – and you can find the resulting code on GitHub. Disclaimer: I am new to Machine Learning, and claim no expertise on the topic. I am currently reading“Machine Learning in Action”, and thought it would be a good learning exercise to convert the book’s samples from Python to F#.
