The growth of Coronavirus cases in Germany is basically identical to the development in Italy, just ~1 week delayed (no machine learning needed to see this)

Usually, I do research in the field of recommender systems, algorithm selection, and machine learning. But, to see how Coronavirus cases develop in Germany, and to predict how it will continue to develop, no machine learning is needed. The chart below shows how Covid-19 cases recently developed in Italy and Read more…

Multi-stream Data Analytics for Enhanced Performance Prediction in Fantasy Football [Pre-Print]

http://aics2019.datascienceinstitute.ie/papers/aics_27.pdf Abstract. Fantasy Premier League (FPL) performance predictors tend to base their algorithms purely on historical statistical data. The main problems with this approach is that external factors such as injuries, managerial decisions and other tournament match statistics can never be factored into the final predictions. In this paper, we Read more…
