    1. Subscription is now possible. Please click on Subscribe Button shown on top of page.

  5. A great initiative. I am sure the data science community will benefit a lot from this.

    A particular use of this blog can be to share experiences with data science. While the final paper only contains the success story, a lot of blind alleys and sweat are never mentioned. Sharing those experiences can help others not to pursue the same line, or to discuss whether the method could have worked with some modifications.
