## Predictive Modelling and Precautions

Predictive analysis is a journey of refinement of data over time using a predictive model.

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Below are five most common mistakes businesses should keep in mind while working with predictive analytics.
1. Correlation does not mean causation: Oldest rule in the book. While creating correlation matrix the most common mistake done is considering that if there exists correlation between two variables, it implies that one causes the other. Not always true.
2. Not Looking for patterns: This holds true in most of the big data analysis for ex. decision trees can grow exponentially large, so be on the lookout for patterns when you use them. If you’re taking a test and you forget some rules of combinatorics, making a simpler instance of your test question may help you find patterns more quickly. Models capture relationships among many factors(& variables) to allow assessment of risk or potential associated with a particular set of conditions, thus decision making. This also brings us to the third point,
3. Failing to consider enough variables: When deciding which variable should be used to include in a model, one should include every variable that seems predictive, most of the data models remove unnecessary variables/factors while computing. Also lack of creating and including custom variables (Using the by operator ex. Visitors by visit) is another mistake one should avoid.
4. Using Future Data to create Future Data: After generating a desired(as close as possible) result using one technique, most of the times the data is not saved or is ignored; The magic lies in saving the result and cross-computing it again with the current data or previously saved results. Ex. In Data Workbenchone can save the obtained results after analysis of a dimension with the other to create a new dimension for the future use. Not using this technique is a big miss!
5. Lack of Experimentation: Most of the times when a company invests in good analytical tool it is trying to obtain results as did another; even the data models used are ones which have proven success with a competitor. There is nothing wrong with it but there is no guarantee that a predictive model which brought 90% success rate for one company, will also get same or better for the other. One point commonly skipped while selecting models is the Data, Your company's data might be very different from the other even being a competitor, the anomaly does not lies in the type of data but in the behavior of data. The solution is to not just adapt a model but to tweak it in a way which is feasible for your data.

## Mind or Concept Mapping: Differences and Similarities

Concept mapping and mind mapping are powerful graphic organizers, strategies for organizing and representing knowledge. They were developed during the seventies.The terms may seem to be interchangeable, but there are some differences in the way they are created and used.

Via Baiba Svenca
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

For some people, mind mapping and concept mapping may represent the same technique, however, they are some differences. This article compares both and list their similarities and differences.

Veenaga Bhushan's curator insight,

While discussing, it is logic, the psycology, the better half. Once you decided to start with it is the best half, to go with the Science the proven subject, which needs some more reaserch for the betterment of the society. From this point the Science and Phylosophy go to gether, no body is not sure of the output. Respect each other and make the points to be solved and tobe promoted. No love, no fear, makes way for justice.

Betty Clevenger's curator insight,

## 4 Speaking Tricks You've Got to Try

These tips will help you craft a presentation that you can deliver with confidence, no matter how great your fear of public speaking.

Via Jenny Ebermann
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Always good to remember...

Here is one of the four:

Keep it Simple

Every speech should be distilled to the simplest points so your audience will be able to retain the information. "When you see someone with 100 different bullet points on the slide," that's boring, says Holman. "Follow the rule of threes ... a simple grouping of things is much more powerful."

John Michel's curator insight,

Cramming every bit of information into a speech should never be the objective. So besides going over the main points, be sure to repeat yourself, constantly.

Nelly Renard's curator insight,

KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) ! Si vous faites le compte des présentations auxquelles vous avez assisté, on est bien loin des 3 points par slide ...

## The Ten (and a half) Commandments of Visual Thinking | The Art Of

Visual thinking is the future of business problem solving. Using our innate ability to see – both with our eyes and our mind’s eye – gives us entirely new ways to discover hidden ideas, develop those ideas intuitively, and then share those ideas with other people in a way they are simply going to “get”.

Via Hélène Pouille
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

"Strategic, financial, operational, conceptual, personal, and emotional: it doesn't matter the nature of the problem we face – if we can imagine it, we can draw it. By drawing it we will see otherwise invisible aspects and potential solutions emerge."

This statement, which sounds quite fair is to be compare with the "EA mantra list".

## A New Visual Search Engine - Athenir

“Research better. Feel better”

Via Beth Dichter
Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Thanks to Richard Byrne / @Beth Dichter for sharing a post on a new search engine, Athenir.

This visual search engine provides a view that may help learners discover additional search terms, allowing them to more easily find the information they are looking for. His post (linked to by clicking his name above) explains that this is just the beginning with additional items being added over the summer.

Providing learners access to search engines beyond Google, Bing and Yahoo is important. There are many search engines that are geared to younger students, that are more visual in nature...this list could go on. The visual component of this is colorful and allows learners to view their search in a format that many find helpful.
