Articles that engage, educate, and entertain through analogies, analytics, and … occasionally, pirates!
Thanks for reading and thanks for taking the time to comment. We greatly appreciate it.
But we will have to agree to disagree here. Everything you do or don’t do creates data, whether you like it or not. By that very fact, you really have zero control and thus, zero ownership.
While transparency is always a good thing, scraping a few gov’t spreadsheet for budget data that likely is anything but accurate is hardly a huge value add. All financials by default are layered. They are then adjusted, modified, and creatively manipulated at each level. I doubt this is as transparent as you believe. Should gov’t transparency really…

Personally, I doubt they will be able to sustain that. Governance, like it or not, is a cost (or a friction) that only seems to work well when it can be directly tied to and incented by the value the data creates.
I have never encountered a stand-alone ML/AI algorithm which created high value. You referenced DL in your tags, but not the article. At one point, you lament a lack of principles that DL would be the logical answer to…
Death of DNN… idk, well articulated reasoning for never relying solely on any algorithm without appropriate “supervision” … agreed. Nice job!
For the record, both of you could have sent us those “articles” and we would have happily published them. Just to emphasize a point — there are no “fads” in analytics. There is unjustified optimism in technologies that will require quite a bit more continuous and continual improvement to create any meaningful value. AI, Big D, Real-time — all great…
Noticed data keys only on second pass — they seemed like a weaker add than our Datak joke… which says something. No debate on the value of keys — only on the popularity of calling them data keys. But we concede the point.
