Digital Twins vs Simulation: Three Key Differences

Digital Twins is a concept, not a single product or a piece of technology. Multiple technologies—3D simulation, IOT, 4G/5G, big data, blockchain, edge computing, cloud computing and artificial intelligence —come together to make the concept a reality. The core principle is, for a physical entity or an asset, a digital equivalent in the virtual world. Read more about Digital Twins vs Simulation: Three Key Differences[…]

Digital Twins : The Wisdom of the Crowd

Wisdom of the crowd, credited to Aristotle’s theory of collective judgement, is a well-established principle. The core premise is a group of people collectively make smarter and better decisions, in comparison to the individual experts.

Tools to get started with the Analytics, and Machine Learning!

“Tools enable, tools restrain, and tools kills” – choosing them wisely will make the difference between learning and frustration. Given the broad nature of the subject, a variety of tools – ranging from data ingestion till visualisation – are used for Analytics and Machine Learning. “Make sure that you always have the right tools for Read more about Tools to get started with the Analytics, and Machine Learning![…]

The (Decision) Trees leads to the (Random) Forest!

Many a times, we are overwhelmed with the size of a problem, and left confounded. A common and an effective problem-solving strategy is to “break it down” into smaller components. This breaking down, helps manage the chunks, instead of one monolithic monster. Decision trees employ similar techniques to solve prediction problems. What is a decision Read more about The (Decision) Trees leads to the (Random) Forest![…]

Logistic Regression: The Discrete Beauty!

“Why was your recent credit card application rejected? How did your telecom service provider figure out you were unhappy? How did your friend predict your favourite team losing in the world cup?” It’s logistic regression at work. How many times have we wondered, if life could be a simple yes or no?
