The Microsoft Team Data Science Process Lifecycle Versus CRISP-DM

Melody Zacharias compares Microsoft’s Team Data Science Process lifecycle with the CRISP-DM process:

As I pointed out in my previous blog, the TDSP lifecycle is made up of five iterative stages:

  1. Business Understanding
  2. Data Acquisition and Understanding
  3. Modeling
  4. Deployment
  5. Customer Acceptance

This is not very different from the six major phases used by the Cross Industry Standard Process for Data Mining (“CRISP-DM”).

This is part of a series on data science that Melody is putting together, so check it out.

Rogier van der Geer shows how you can use PyTorch to build out a Convolutional Neural Network for image classification: The tool that we are going to use to make a classifier is called a convolutional neural network, or CNN. You can find a great explanation of what these are right here on wikipedia. But we […]
