COVID-19 predictions, Dunning-Kruger Effect and the Hippocratic Oath of a Data Scientist
Some close friends have asked if I have been analyzing the COVID-19 datasets. Yes, I have been looking at these datasets. However, my analysis has been just out of curiosity and not with the intent of publishing my forecast or recommendations.
COVID-19 predictions, Dunning-Kruger effect and Hippocratic oath of a data scientist
Experienced machine learning professionals understand the limitations of modeling. Given what impact they can have on lives, society and economy, one has to understand their social responsibility in communicating insights.

There is No Noise — Only Bias
There is No Noise — Only BiasUnderstanding why noise in machine learning is nothing but biasIn this post, we explain how bias and noise in machine learning are two sides of the same coin.God does not play dice. — Albert EinsteinEinstein famously gave this statement in reaction to the emerging …
Researcher Develops Algorithm to Make Artificial Intelligence Fairer
A researcher from Queen’s University Belfast has developed an innovative new algorithm that will help make artificial intelligence (AI) fairer and less biased when processing data. Companies often use AI technologies to sift through huge amounts of data in situations such as an oversubscribed job vacancy or in policing when …
Methods of Study Design – Experiments
We all are familiar with experiments, we read about them in books or newspapers. Researchers/ scientists perform experiments to validate their hypothesis/ statements or to test a new product. Unlike observational studies, experiments are performed in a controlled environment so that the effect of other external factors/variables can be eliminated …

Detecting Bias with SHAP
StackOverflow’s annual developer survey concluded earlier this year, and they have graciously published the (anonymized) 2019 results for analysis. They’re a rich view into the experience of software developers around the world — what’s their favorite editor? how many years of experience? tabs or spaces? and crucially, salary. Software engineers’ …
Justified Algorithmic Forgiveness?
Last week, Paco Nathan referenced Julia Angwin’s recent Strata keynote that covered algorithmic bias. This Domino Data Science Field Note dives a bit deeper into some of the publicly available research regarding algorithmic accountability and forgiveness, specifically around a proprietary black box model used to predict the risk of recidivism, …
