Looking at Measurement and How We Evaluate the Impact of Reinforcement Learning Over Traditional Predictive Analytics

 Are we really at a new stage of so-called industrial development much like how the car replaced the horse and buggy as the main mode of consumer transportation? This would appear to be the case by some thought leaders and practitioner leaders that reinforcement learning (RL) will and should replace traditional prediction analytics as the

Overcoming the Explainability Challenges of Machine Learning Models

 Some History Machine Learning Models, which have historically been referred to as predictive models, are not new. Any early practitioner in this field would emphasize that the two key deliverables of any model are as follows: its...

Some Thoughts on Analytics in a Post COVID-19 Environment

 In these most difficult times, the use of analytics is certainly not top of mind for most organizations unless it is being used to combat the virus. The challenging scenarios of meeting payroll and having access to...
