Machine learning is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed. In the past decade, machine learning has given us self-driving cars, practical speech recognition, effective web search, and a vastly improved understanding of the human genome. Machine learning is so pervasive today that you probably use it dozens of times a day without knowing it. Many researchers also think it is the best way to make progress towards human-level AI. In this class, you will learn about the most effective machine learning techniques, and gain practice implementing them and getting them to work for yourself. More importantly, you'll learn about not only the theoretical underpinnings of learning, but also gain the practical know-how needed to quickly and powerfully apply these techniques to new problems. This course provides a broad introduction to machine learning, datamining, and statistical pattern recognition.

Five habits of highly successful analysts I have interacted with various successful analysts over last 7 years. During these interactions, I found out some common habits in them. After observing these habits, I have tried ways to inculcate these habits myself. Some of these habits were also emphasized by my mentors, while the others were learnt the hard way! This article lays down 5 habits I have observed in highly successful analysts and provides some of the ways in which I practice these habits. On one hand, I hope that some one should have made me aware of these habits at start of my career and the long lasting impact these could have.

Here are the questions to ask to determine if Hadoop is right for your problem. Guest blog By Anand Krishnaswamy, ThoughtWorks, Oct 4, 2013. Hadoop is often positioned as the one framework your organization needs to solve nearly all your problems. Mention "Big Data" or "Analytics" and pat comes the reply: Hadoop! Hadoop, however, was purpose-built for a clear set of problems; for others it is, at best, a poor fit or, even worse, a mistake.

Busting 10 myths about Hadoop Although Hadoop and related technologies have been with us for more than five years now, most BI professionals and their business counterparts still harbor a few misconceptions that need to be corrected about Hadoop and related technologies such as MapReduce. The following list of 10 facts will clarify what Hadoop is and does relative to BI/DW, as well as in which business and technology situations Hadoop-based business intelligence (BI), data warehousing (DW), data integration (DI), and analytics can be useful. Fact No. 1: Hadoop consists of multiple products Data Mining Survivor: - dmsurvivor The procedures and applications presented in this book have been included for their instructional value.
