Here’s a whitepaper I wrote on the ‘state of Machine Learning’. It includes information about implementation via various cloud-based ML services (AWS, Azure, IBM) as well as category information (for architects). Your are welcome to read this whitepaper online or to download it if you prefer (linked to Slideshare source).
Updated core deck (includes video at end with demos) on AWS services of interest for the SQL Server professional – enjoy!
Deck from a talk I will be giving this Saturday at SQLSaturday in Mountain View, CA — hope to see you there!
I found a great tool for integrating Quandl free, public data into Excel PowerBI. I made a quick screencast too. There are over 8,000,000 datasets to pick from and everything is free, so lots to work with here.
I’ll be speaking at and/or attending a number of technical events this spring. I decided to make a short video to list all of them – if you are attending any of these events, stop over and say ‘hi’.
Enjoy my short screencast on how to use Excel PowerQuery and D&B Data APIs from the Windows Azure Datamarket to turn public data (in this case a list of CA-based companies) into a verified prospect customer list.
I’ll admit it, I am really hooked on PowerBI in Excel 2013 – in particular, I find many uses for PowerQuery (shown below).
To that end, I was playing around with my Slideshare analytics data in PowerBI and I learned a thing or two. Below is a screen of my data as I was filtering and shaping it in PowerQuery. You may note some of the transformation steps to the right of the screen below.
If you are a scripting kind of person, here’s a look at part of the transformation script generated by PowerQuery.
I also made a short screencast, showing the process I used in more detail.
In case you don’t want to watch the video, here’s what I found – database people tweet!
