Crisis Text Line Gets Help through Data Science Company Pivotal to Save the Lives of At Risk Teens
While millions of people are at risk of committing suicide, teens are often the most in distress. A number of solutions have been created to reach at-risk teens and help prevent them from taking their own lives. One of these is Crisis Text Line. However, the organization found that it required assistance in measuring interaction value and creating predictive models to help create positive outcomes in the future.

Silicon Valley Data Science Helps Health Integrated Plot a Course for the Future
For any business, plotting a course into the future can be immensely difficult. However, for a health care provider with thousands of patients, doctors, nurses and support staff, that issue becomes infinitely more complex. Silicon Valley Data Science was able to help Health Integrated chart such a course to create a “roadmap for technical capability development designed to address those needs tied to the most pressing and valuable business aspirations.”

Solving relationship issues in data science: Top regression techniques
When we hear about regression in data science, the two techniques that come to mind are linear and logistic regression and many professionals end up learning those techniques well. Having said that, there are many types of regression that can be performed, in this article we will go through some of the key regression techniques.
Thanks for your comment and feedback on the article.
Propensity Modelling for Business
Propensity modelling is a statistical approach and a set of techniques which attempts to estimate the likelihood of subjects performing certain types of behaviour (e.g. the purchase of a product) by accounting for independent variables (covariates) and confounding variables that affect such behaviour.
Algorithm for Propensity Scoring - a step by step framework is nicely written and explained
A new Data Science Framework for Analysing and Mining Geospatial Big Data
Geospatial Big Data analytics are changing the way that businesses operate in many industries. Although a good number of research works have reported in the literature on geospatial data analytics and real-time data processing of large spatial data streams, only a few have addressed the full geospatial big data analytics project lifecycle and geospatial data science project lifecycle. Big data analysis differs from traditional data analysis primarily due to the volume, velocity and variety characteristics of the data being processed. One motivation in introducing a new framework is to address these big data analysis challenges. Geospatial data science projects differ from most traditional data analysis projects because they could be complex and in need of advanced technologies in comparison to the traditional data analysis projects. For this reason, it is essential to have a process to govern the project and ensure that the project participants are competent enough to carry on the process. To this end, this paper presents, new geospatial big data mining and machine learning framework for geospatial data acquisition, data fusion, data storing, managing, processing, analysing, visualising and modelling and evaluation. Having a good process for data analysis and clear guidelines for comprehensive analysis is always a plus point for any data science project. It also helps to predict required time and resources early in the process to get a clear idea of the business problem to be solved.

Big data management: How Organizations Create and Implement Data Strategies
Big data is often approached as a mere technical problem, while many times projects fail because of lack of strategic focus. Implementing the right process may help companies to efficiently run analytics works and for this reason, the paper proposes a few concepts that can support the organizational development of a big data blueprint. Three main ideas will be outlined here: the data lean approach, the maturity map, and different organization models for a data team.
Implementing the right process may help companies to efficiently run analytics works and for this reason, - Agree

Big Data: The next frontier for advance, competition, and efficiency
Nowadays organisations are starting to realise the importance of using more data in order to support decision for their strategies. The size of data in the world is growing day by day. Data is growing because of vast use of internet, smart phone and social network. Big data is a collection of data sets which is very large in size as well as complex. Generally size of the data is Petabyte and Exabyte. Traditional database systems are not able to capture, store and analyse this large amount of data. As the internet is growing, the amount of big data continues to grow. Big data analytics provide new ways for businesses and government to analyse unstructured data. Nowadays, big data is one of the most talked about topic in the IT industry. It is going to play an important role in the future. Big data changes the way that data is managed and used. Some of the applications are in areas such as healthcare, defence, traffic management, banking, agriculture, retail, education and so on. Organisations are becoming more flexible and more open. New types of data will give new challenges as well.
