From Data To Insight: Turning Information Into Intelligence

From Data To Insight: Turning Information Into Intelligence | Data Management Thread | Scoop.it
Marketers are all over big data - but are they looking to big data at the expense of true insights and missing the heartbeat of their customers?

Irina Radchenko's insight:

Today’s connected consumer has access to an insane amount of information, all at their fingertips, thanks to the ubiquity of smartphone access to the web.

 

From checking restaurant reviews and stock prices, to taking pictures of a new pair of jeans and asking the opinion of friends on Facebook, today’s consumer is no longer restricted to choosing a brand through a push marketing approach.

Same can be said for learning as well, we track a lot in LMS's but are we measuring what matters?  Have we defined, and agreed upon, the metrics that will help the business and the performance of the community we serve?

"What are the differences between data science, data mining, machine learning, statistics, operations research, and so on?

Here I compare several analytic disciplines that overlap, to explain the differences and common denominators. Sometimes differences exist for nothing else other than historical reasons. Sometimes the differences are real and subtle. I also provide typical job titles, types of analyses, and industries traditionally attached to each discipline. Underlined domains are main sub-domains. It would be great if someone can add an historical perspective to my article."

Data + Science = Sexy

Data + Science = Sexy | Data Management Thread | Scoop.it
I remember the days of Bezdek, fuzzy c-means clustering. My humble team developed algorithms to classify landmines in Angola. We spent a lot of time looking at the data, matrices and vectors before selecting a random sample group. Principal component analysis was another popular method to compress the data to decrease the cost of algorithms. It was not too long ago that I wrote my dissertation on it in 2010.

Carla Gentry CSPO's curator insight, February 26, 7:40 AM

These were the days that MATLAB crashed over and over, had problems with averaging and filtering. We all needed to validate what we were doing. I was wondering if we still need to validate what we are doing with data and try to learn from the nature of the data? Or else, are we a step further that all datasets are the same? Can we trust to commercial products and press a button to puke graphs and histograms? Is that why data science became so sexy?
