I think the message in #DataScience needs to be: Don't believe everything you read. 🧵

I'd like to thank Rafael Nicolas Fermin Cota for pointing me to this modified graphic from a recent Harvard Business Review article on "Prioritizing Which Data Skills Your Company Needs".
You hear Harvard Business Review, & you think this must be legit.

Well, in this case, they dropped the ball.

If you're coming up with an educational plan for your org in 2022, here are some tips...

1/ "Software is eating the world. Machine learning is eating software. Transformers are eating machine learning."

Let's understand what these Transformers are all about

#DataScience #MachineLearning #DeepLearning #100DaysOfMLCode #Python #pythoncode #AI #DataAnalytics
2/ #Transformers architecture follows Encoder and Decoder structure.

The encoder receives input sequence and creates intermediate representation by applying embedding and attention mechanism.

#DataScience #MachineLearning #DeepLearning #100DaysOfMLCode #Python #pythoncode #AI
3/ Then, this intermediate representation or hidden state will pass through the decoder, and the decoder starts generating an output sequence.

2/ It is important to standardize variables before running Cluster Analysis. It is because cluster analysis techniques depend on the concept of measuring the distance between the different observations we're trying to cluster.

#DataScience #MachineLearning #DeepLearning
3/ If a variable is measured at a higher scale than the other variables, then whatever measure we use will be overly influenced by that variable.

1/ Can you classify something without seeing it before - that's what Zero-Shot Learning is all about - A Thread

👉 One of the popular methods for zero-shot learning is Natural Language Inference (NLI).

#DataScience #DeepLearning #MachineLearning #100DaysOfMLCode #Pytho
3/ In Zero-shot classification, we ask the model to classify a sentence to one of the classes (label) that the model hasn't seen during training.

1/ Why do we need the bias term in ML algorithms such as linear regression and neural networks ? - A thread

#DataScience #MachineLearning #100DaysOfMLCode #DataScientist #Statistics #programming #ArtificialIntelligence #Data #pythoncode #AI #Stats #DeepLearning #100DaysOfCode Image
2/ In linear regression, without the bias term your solution has to go through the origin. That is, when all of your features are zero, your predicted value would also have to be zero.

Why L1 regularizations causes parameter sparsity whereas L2 regularization does not?

#DataScience #MachineLearning #100DaysOfMLCode #DataScientist #Statistics #programming #ArtificialIntelligence #Data #pythoncode #AI #Stats
2/ L1 & L2 regularization add constraints to the optimization problem. The curve H0 is the hypothesis. The solution to this system is the set of points where the H0 meets the constraints.

3/ Regularizations in statistics or in the field of machine learning is used to include some extra information in order to solve a problem in a better way.

Dalot vs Wan bissaka
Which is better in stats PER 90???

Let's start with passes we see that dalot and wan bissaka in passes per 90 they have many similarities,but the assist statistic and key passes is axtual very bad... Image
Then we continue and we see the defensive actions , now we see some differences in the number we can see that dalot in many things he is actually better than Wan Bissaka and he improved a lot these months in contrast wan bissaka that he is better only for blocks Image
Per 90 minutes we see that dalot helps a lit bit more in passes that lead for shot attempt or a goal , that means dalot better in offensive and defensive things than wan bissaka Image

Z-Scores are a great #Stats tool to help give us some insight into a data set, especially in the #Bitcoin and On-Chain world.

So, what exactly is a Z-Score? What is it good for? What are its limitations? What kinds of Z-Scores are there?

Let's dive in.👇🧵
Before we can talk Z-Scores though, we need to talk Standard Deviation (SD).

What's that you say?

Well, a SD is, essentially, the "average distance from the average (mean)" for a set of data points. Image
A Z-Score, then, takes each individual point's distance from the mean and compares that to the SD.

So essentially saying, "how does this point's distance from the mean compare to the SD?". Image

Petit thread sur l'usage des intervalles de confiance dans les sondages politiques. Ici en utilisant le dernier sondage en rolling de l'IFOP pour les présidentielles françaises 👇

#Presidentielle2022 #Sondage #stats Image
La présentation de ce sondage inclue une notice méthodologique avec un intervalle de confiance générique à utiliser. Celui-ci est exact, même s'il faut faire l'impasse sur la méthode de quota utilisée ici. Image
Mais il ne contient pas les intervalles de confiance pour chaque résultat. J'ai cherché à les ajouter à partir des données fournies leur notice méthodologique et les conclusions sont assez différentes. Première conclusion : ce n'est pas facile...

Title: What Can *Conformal Inference* Offer to Statistics?


Main points:
(1) Conformal Inference can be made applicable in many #stats problems
(2) There are lots of misconceptions about Conformal Inference
(3) Try it!

Conformal Inference was designed for generating prediction intervals with guaranteed coverage in standard #ML problems.

Nevertheless, it can be modified to be applicable in

✔️Causal inference
✔️Survival analysis
✔️Election night model
✔️Outlier detection
✔️Risk calibration

Misconceptions about conformal inference:

❌ Conformal intervals only have marginal coverage and tend to be wide
✔️ Conformal intervals w/ proper conformity scores achieve conditional coverage & efficiency (short length) if the model is correctly specified

1/ Continuons notre série "où est passé l'argent de la recherche" avec les études du #SARS_CoV_2 dans les #eaux usées.

Sur le principe, pourquoi pas ?

C'est assez robuste pour y retrouver les #drogues. En France, ces travaux du @CNRS étaient dans @libe…
2/ Le soucis est qu'un #virus c'est pas une molécule.

La bonne nouvelle a été que l'on peut détecter le #SARS_CoV_2 dans les eaux usées !

La moins bonne a été qu'il était difficile de savoir quoi en faire...

Car savoir qu'un virus pandémique circule aide peu.
3/ Au niveau du #dépistage, à peu près aucune étude sur les #eaux usées n'a regardé la #sensibilité ou #spécificité de la méthode.

Quelle variabilité pour un même échantillon ?

Quelle variabilité pour des échantillons pris le même jour à une même station ?

@ATMNE_math panel discussions happening now! Being recorded for those who can't attend live.
Thanks @atomic_math!
Looking forward to panel on "Math 4 All" with @carloliwitter @mslailanur & Michelle McKnight
#MTBoS #iTeachMath
Michelle: Math 4 All means all Ss see themselves as math do-ers & thinkers & communicators. No obstacles are being set up by us, so all Ss see themselves as "math people"
@mslailanur : Meet all Ss where they are
@mslailanur @carloliwitter Everyone should have the access to all the math, so everyone can have the opportunities & options.
Reminded of Bob Moses, radical equations.

hello #psychology #stats twitter!

a while ago i promised some graphs on why #removing #outliers using a simple cut-off (eg, >2SDs) is a #bad idea

so that I can sleep at night again, here they are


for some reason, it's very common in #psychology to remove 'outliers' from data

most common way: exclude data more than two standard deviations from mean

we spend time & money collecting data, then throw 5% away


I don't know why, or where it's taught, but there it is

1/ A thread on @pendle_fi, one of the most understimated projects that recently launched on mainnet. Pendle is a protocol that enables the trading and hedging of yield and currently supports two yield-generating tokens: aUSDC and cDAI, both products expire on December 29th, 2022.
2/ A deposit of aUSDC is separated into OT-aUSDC (OT represents the ownership of the underlying token deposited) and YT-aUSDC (representing the ownership of the future yield generated).
3/ @pendle_fi created a USDC liquidity pool for YT-aUSDC and YT-cDAI to price their markets, this is achieved providing incentives,
