Difference Between Data Mining VS Predictive Analytics VS Machine Learning etc If you are a beginner in data mining and want to become at least familiar with the main concepts and terminologies, maybe the first step would be to acquire a clear bird’s eye view about the whole domain – definition, inception, classification, influences, trends – but without diving into too deep and scholastic details. And, of course, you do that by searching on Internet and skimming whatever books you have at hand. You might say that one day would be more than enough to get an overall understanding about this domain. But you don’t have a clue about the trouble you’re getting into.

Universal Properties Previously in this series we’ve seen the definition of a category and a bunch of examples, basic properties of morphisms, and a first look at how to represent categories as types in ML. In this post we’ll expand these ideas and introduce the notion of a universal property. We’ll see examples from mathematics and write some programs which simultaneously prove certain objects have universal properties and construct the morphisms involved. A Grand Simple Thing One might go so far as to call universal properties the most important concept in category theory. Definition: An object in a category is called initial if for every object there is a unique morphism . is called final if for every object . In both cases, the existence of a unique morphism is the same as saying the relevant Hom set is a singleton (i.e., for initial objects , the Hom set consists of a single element). when In the single element set is final, but not initial; there is only one set-function to a single-element set. Proposition: If

Gapminder: Unveiling the beauty of statistics for a fact based world view. An R "meta" book by Joseph Rickert I am a book person. I collect books on all sorts of subjects that interest me and consequently I have a fairly extensive collection of R books, many of which I find to be of great value. Recently, however, while crawling around CRAN, it occurred to me that there is a tremendous amount of high quality material on a wide range of topics in the Contributed Documentation page that would make a perfect introduction to all sorts of people coming to R. The content column lists the topics that I think ought to be included in a good introductory probability and statistics textbook. Finally, I don’t mean to imply that the documents in my table are the best assembled in the Contributed Documentation page.
