The path to success is not something simple, it always requires a level of work and effort to achieve it. Big Data technologies, presenting a great potential both for the present and in the future, are in constant transformation and expansion. The evolution of Big data and the level of adoption of these technologies by companies (depending on their level of maturity Big Data), makes us meet with different challenges in the medium term. To avoid limitations in this regard we must study some points that may imply a challenge in the future. Shortage of Big data experts Interestingly, one of the biggest difficulties that those companies that already develop Big Data initiatives is to find professionals with enoughtraining and…

The customization of mass production is the catalyst for change that, among other things, originates industry 4.0 Lot has passed since the steam engine changed the course of our civilization history with the mechanization of production in the First Industrial Revolution. Scientific advances at the end of the 19th century allowed the Second Industrial Revolution with the discovery of electricity that would be the basis for mass production, followed by a Third Industrial Revolution in the 20th century thanks to the power of information technology and electronics in the automation of production processes. Today, a Fourth Industrial Revolution is brewing, product of the merge of a series of exponential technologies such as Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of Things…

The industrial sector is currently immersed in a process of change that makes evident the need to evolve its business model towards a less traditional business model. In recent years, digital technologies have appeared that can help the industry adapt to market demands. The incorporation of these technologies in industrial processes becomes key to remain relevant within the sector. Thanks to the integration of these technologies, focused on IoT and the analysis and collection of information on the own instrumentation of the machines, the industrial sector will be enriched with the appearance of a huge amount of information not contemplated nor analyzed to date. This analysis will significantly increase the knowledge that companies have on their own processes and their environment,…

In the era of Big Data a day does not pass by without us reading some news about Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning or Deep Learning, never knowing what they refer to. The "experts" of the sector mix and exchange the terms with all naturalness, and only contribute to their hype. The simple fact of mentioning them catches the attention of investors and convinces them that these techniques have an almost magical power. Machine Learning is a scientific discipline coming from Artificial Intelligence, that studies how systems can be programmed to learn and improve with experience without human intervention. To address this problem, new paradigms emerge daily that allow the discovery of knowledge based on specific data deriving from solid statistical…

Identification and analysis of signs of customer churn Knowing which customers might not continue as such has been the objective of classic customer churn models, which final output consisted of the probability of loss associated with each customer over a specific temporary time range. However, once we know the customer is going to leave, we must ask ourselves: What can we do to keep them? And taking it even further: What can we do to keep the customer from even considering leaving? Preventive Measures for Customer Churn in the Banking Sector At Synergic Partners, we have carried out a project for one of the largest banking entities in Spain responding to these questions with a methodology based on the combination…

Understanding our clients and giving the best response to meeting their needs in the shortest amount of time possible is key to improving satisfaction and engagement with the company. The problem begins when the number of clients is high and we are receiving hundreds or thousands of messages per day. In this situation, we have two problems to solve. First, we have to prioritize which messages we are going to respond first and, second, we have to understand what it is that they are saying. It is clear that some messages will be more important or more urgent than others and that it will not always be easy to prioritize. To make things easier, we can use Machine Learning techniques…

According to the OMS, one of the main worries of global society today is violence and crime, making avoiding crime and creating centers of intelligence to do so the main objective for police and judicial systems. In this sense, as director of innovation and influenced by science fiction, I set out to analyze this situation. Using the traditional scientific method, the first step was to ask questions and hypothesize: Is it possible to predict the place, date and time of a crime? And if so, to what extent, in what kind of detail? Do we have experience with this? Who can offer us information? Has anyone done this before and, if so, what were the results? Thanks to our previous…

Warnings about normalizing data
  • Santiago Morante
  • No tags

For many machine learning algorithms, normalizing the data of analysis is a must. A supervised example would be neural networks. It is known that normalizing the input data to the networks improve the results. If you don't believe me it's ok (no offense taken), but you may prefer to believe Yann Le Cunn (Director of AI Research in Facebook and founding father of convolutional networks) by checking section 4.3 of this paper. You can catch up the idea with the first sentence of the section: Convergence [of backprop] is usually faster if the average of each input variable over the training set is close to zero. Among other things, one reason is that when the neural network tries to correct…
