Data Analytics Success Starts with Empowerment
Being Data Driven is not as much of a tech challenge as it is an adoption challenge. Adoption has it’s root in cultural DNA of any organization. Great data driven organizations rungs the data driven culture into the corporate DNA. A culture of connection, interactions, sharing and collaboration is what it takes to be data driven. Its about being empowered more than its about being educated.

[ DATA SCIENCE Q&A]

Q:How to optimize algorithms? (parallel processing and/or faster algorithms). Provide examples for both?
A: Premature optimization is the root of all evil – Donald Knuth

Parallel processing: for instance in R with a single machine.
– doParallel and foreach package
– doParallel: parallel backend, will select n-cores of the machine
– for each: assign tasks for each core
– using Hadoop on a single node
– using Hadoop on multi-node

Faster algorithm:
– In computer science: Pareto principle; 90% of the execution time is spent executing 10% of the code
– Data structure: affect performance
– Caching: avoid unnecessary work
– Improve source code level
For instance: on early C compilers, WHILE(something) was slower than FOR(;;), because WHILE evaluated “something” and then had a conditional jump which tested if it was true while FOR had unconditional jump.

[ TIPS & TRICKS OF THE WEEK]

Data aids, not replace judgement
Data is a tool and means to help build a consensus to facilitate human decision-making but not replace it. Analysis converts data into information, information via context leads to insight. Insights lead to decision making which ultimately leads to outcomes that brings value. So, data is just the start, context and intuition plays a role.

[ DATA SCIENCE Q&A]

Q:Is it better to have 100 small hash tables or one big hash table, in memory, in terms of access speed (assuming both fit within RAM)? What do you think about in-database analytics?
A: Hash tables:
– Average case O(1)O(1) lookup time
– Lookup time doesn’t depend on size

Even in terms of memory:
– O(n)O(n) memory
– Space scales linearly with number of elements
– Lots of dictionaries won’t take up significantly less space than a larger one

In-database analytics:
– Integration of data analytics in data warehousing functionality
– Much faster and corporate information is more secure, it doesn’t leave the enterprise data warehouse
Good for real-time analytics: fraud detection, credit scoring, transaction processing, pricing and margin analysis, behavioral ad targeting and recommendation engines

December 5, 2016 Health and Biotech analytics news roundup

Here’s the latest in health and biotech analytics:

Google’s DeepMind and NHS restart data-sharing deal with greater transparency: Google has announced an agreement with the UK’s National Health Service to develop a mobile app, Streams, which will provide data-driven insights to doctors. There have been concerns about data sharing with past agreements, and Google has promised to implement “an unprecedented level of data security.”

IBM and Pfizer to Accelerate Immuno-oncology Research with Watson for Drug Discovery: Pfizer is looking for drugs that will modify the immune system to fight cancer. Watson will help them find new drug targets by analyzing millions of scientific journal articles, as well as other primary data sources. 

Scientists created a mobile game to help detect the early onset of dementia: In “Sea Hero Quest,” a collaboration between game designers and scientists studying dementia, players do tasks intended to measure their spatial navigation skills. The project has collected 9,500 years of data, which has helped the researchers measure how age, geography, and gender affect these skills.

Mount Sinai Researchers Demonstrate Ability of Machine-Learning Algorithms in Echocardiographic Interpretation and Diagnosis of HCM: Pathological hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM, a thickening of the walls of the heart) is difficult to distinguish from non-pathological cases. The research team trained machine learning algorithms on echocardiograms (heart ultrasounds), which improved on non-automated techniques for diagnosing the condition.

Will Big Data Finally Demystify the Brain and Alzheimer’s?: At the USC Neuroimaging and Informatics Institute, researchers use brain imaging data from all NIH-funded studies on brain disease.. To date, they have found physical changes associated with schizophrenia, depression, and Alzheimer’s disease.

A genome every 12 minutes: The Harvard/MIT Broad Institute recently hosted the Program in Quantitative Genomics Conference. Speakers highlighted the growth in genomes sequenced at the institute (3 per year in 2006 to 75,000 per year today), insights that can be gained from large amounts of sequences, and the pitfalls of relying too much on genetic data.

One Obstacle to Curing Cancer: Patient Data Isn’t Shared: For a variety of reasons, data critical for the development of precision therapies are largely fragmented into inaccessible siloes. There are some government and private efforts to make large, publically available datasets; however there are also opportunities to patients themselves to spur the generation and sharing of data. The Harvard Business School Precision Medicine Accelerator wants to spread knowledge of these opportunities.

Why Scientists Are Sequencing Newborns’ Genomes: Robert Green is leading the BabySeq program, which he hopes will lead to better personalized treatments.

Roanoke Memorial mines patient records to spot trouble early: The hospital uses input from lab tests as well as nurse’s observations to calculate a “Rothman score.” This score can be used to detect when a patient’s condition is starting to deteriorate.
