Editor’s Note: Every step in the innovation journey has always been a great challenge. Finding a “big idea” for something new is among the most difficult. We’ve all seen products that have seemed to come out of nowhere and become big sellers.Read Full Story
The American Epilepsy Society Seizure Prediction Challenge ended a few days ago, and I finished 10th out of 504 teams.
In this post I will briefly outline the problem and my solution.
Epilepsy is one of the most commonly diagnosed neurological disorders.
We took o n the challenge to spot nuclei and speed cures by creating solutions to automate nucleus detection. With the help of thousands of people around the globe, the conclusion of this year’s Data Science Bowl points to new beginnings in moving all medical research ahead from major threats like heart disease and diabetes to day to-day ailments like allergies or rare disorders.Read Full Story
I recently had a go at the Kaggle Acquire Valued Shoppers Challenge. This competition was a bit special in that the dataset was 22 GB, one of the biggest datasets they’ve had in a competition. While 22 GB may not quite qualify as big data, it’s certainly something that your average laptop will choke on when using standard methods.Read Full Story

Apple has recently joined the machine learning and deep learning craze. They are hiring at an “accelerated pace”:http://www.businessinsider.
The Higgs Boson Machine Learning Challenge was probably the most intense competition I’ve worked on, and most likely the one I’m most proud of my solution for too. Sure, there’s a lot that I could have done better, but that’s why I work on Kaggle competitions.Read Full Story
Have you set a reading challenge for the summer? This is something different: challenge reading, not a reading challenge. Four books I’ve read recently that challenge our assumptions and normal ways of working in today’s data-centric world. Have fun.Read Full Story
This was by far the most significant iteration of the ongoing exercise where I challenge an audience to produce a keyword search that works better than technology-assisted review (also known as predictive coding or supervised machine learning).Read Full Story
Watching the O’Reilly teams accept the challenge of the Kincade fire and subsequent power outages was nothing short of remarkable. Natural disasters are fundamentally about how people deal in the worst of circumstances. In California, it’s the recent horrific fires that have tested how people come together in the aftermath to survive and thrive.Read Full Story
