In this Banana Byte, our podcast hosts discuss a recent breakthrough in drug discovery catalyzed by AI and Machine Learning. What are the larger implications of this discovery and why is it significant?
With the holidays in full force, we’re taking stock of all that we’re grateful for in our lives. In this Banana Byte, the Banana Data Podcast team shares the top data tools that they are thankful for. These tools make data science easier, quicker, and more understandable thus improving our lives every day.
In a world of work that is becoming increasingly virtual, the volume of data available to understand and predict employee output is growing at exponential pace. People analytics by virtue of AI and big data is essential to managing and improving organizations’ effectiveness.
Core algorithms might only take up a few times of code and a few minutes to do so. But, the rest of the program may get messy quickly. In this Banana Byte, we tackle the question of when its worth it to invest your time in code and the trade-offs between developing something accurate vs. something quick.
Typically when the average person thinks of bots, it rings with a negative connotation. Bots are immediately associated with spam and fake personas. But, is there a positive flip side to this coin? Listen to our 15-minute Banana Byte to find out.
In this episode, our Banana Data hosts discuss the many implications that can arise from misinterpreted data. What criteria needs to be established for valid conclusions from data and how can we interpret uncertainty?
When people generally think of AI they think in futuristic terms defined by movies like The Terminator. However AI, at least at this moment, is nowhere near Skynet, a fictional artificial neural network-based conscious group mind and artificial general superintelligence system that serves as the antagonist of The Terminator franchise. Instead of worrying about Skynet, maybe we should worry about this bear wielding nunchucks, which seems like more of an immediate problem.
We're talking about one of the most frequently asked questions by people looking to jump start their Data Science career: do you need to have every mathematical formula memorized? What are the true prerequisites you need to be prepared in this field? Tune in and we’ll get you up to speed.
Deep Learning has become a mainstay in today's data science and AI practices - but what makes it so valuable? On this Banana Byte, we explore when, why, and how to use deep learning, and how it compares to (and might replace!) other common algorithms.
Many claim that Cloud has stolen the computing show - providing scalability, cost savings, loss prevention, and more - it's taken the world (and the headlines) by storm. So, on this Banana Byte, we ask - is cloud computing inevitable? Or is it just a disruptive buzzword whose negatives outweigh the benefits?
Zoom conferencing software recently made headlines for its huge leaks in privacy and security, pushing a number of big corporations to block the software and push for new privacy legislation. During this Banana Byte session, we cover the things Zoom overlooked - and what it means for data privacy, usability, and user experience.
