Predictive Modelling and Precautions

Predictive Modelling and Precautions | All about Visualization & Storytelling |

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.

Timeline of the far future

Timeline of the far future | All about Visualization & Storytelling |

From BBC Future:

What do we expect will happen in one thousand years time? Or one million years? Or even one billion? As our amazing timeline shows, there may be trouble ahead.

First, we brought you a prediction of the forthcoming year. Then we brought you a timeline of the near future, revealing what could happen up to around 100 years time. But here’s our most ambitious set of predictions yet – from what could happen in one thousand years time to one hundred quintillion years (that’s 100,000,000,000,000,000,000 years)...

Visual features 10 skills for the future workforce

Emeric Nectoux's insight:

Going through the content of this graphic I found it really interesting and wanted you to have a look as well.

That being said, I do however personally think that the things mentioned as being "skills for future workforce"  relate more to the concept of competencies than to skills.

Printing the Human Body: How It Works and Where It Is Headed

Printing the Human Body: How It Works and Where It Is Headed | All about Visualization & Storytelling |

The rise of 3D printing has introduced one of the most ground-breaking technological feats happening right now. The most exciting part, though, doesn't have anything to do with printing electronics or fancy furniture, but in producing human tissues, otherwise known as bioprinting. While it is still in its infancy, the future of bioprinting looks very bright and will eventually result in some major advances for society, whilst also saving billions for the economy this is spent on research and development.
