    I've read several books on Data Science over the year and although most of them were quite insightful, there is one thing that was missing and kept bugging me: bugs and mistakes in data science and how we can deal with them! Since getting vexed about it was counter-productive, I decided to make a video about this topic, which is now available at Safari Books Online. Check it out when you have the chance

    I'd like to hear your views on this one: . Apparently this guy hasn't really done his homework, since DL and other ANN-based methods are under the ML umbrella. Leaving this aside, though, what do you think of his thesis? Is ML truly inferior to DL as he suggests? Are human data scientists going obsolete due to the advancements of DL and other A.I. techniques?

    Apologies for the source of this article. I just couldn't resist, but at the same time I couldn't comment on the LI platform (that would go against my new year's resolution!). I've been looking at the problem of natural language and text analytics a lot lately (I'm part of a team that explores this field, in Seattle). Although ANNs are a very mature technology with many promising applications, that's not the type of A.I. I'd use. Don't get me wrong. I like conventional A.I. and I've worked with neural nets. Hell, even my advisor for my PhD was a neural network expert! Still, the more I look into this topic, the more I find that ANNs are better suited for other applications, while natural language is best modeled through other, more intuitive approaches that have little to do with conventional A.I. methods, such as ANNs.
