Netiquette IQ Technical Term For 7/24/2015 - Ensemble Modeling

Ensemble modeling - from whatis.com
Ensemble modeling is the process of running two or more related but different analytical models and then synthesizing the results into a single score or spread in order to improve the accuracy of predictive analytics and data mining applications.
 ============================================================
In predictive modeling and other types of data analytics, a single model based on one data sample can have biases, high variability or outright inaccuracies that affect the reliability of its analytical findings. Using specific modeling techniques can present similar drawbacks. By combining different models or analyzing multiple samples, data scientists and other data analysts can reduce the effects of those limitations and provide better information to business decision makers.
One common example of ensemble modeling is a random forest model. This approach to data mining leverages multiple decision trees, a type of analytical model that's designed to predict outcomes based on different variables and rules. A random forest model blends decision trees that may analyze different sample data, evaluate different factors or weight common variables differently. The results of the various decision trees are then either converted into a simple average or aggregated through further weighting.
Ensemble modeling has grown in popularity as more organizations have deployed the computing resources and advanced analytics software needed to run such models. In addition, the emergence of Hadoop and other big data technologies has led businesses to store and analyze greater volumes of data, creating increased potential for running analytical models on different data samples.

Netiquette IQ Blog Of 7/23/2015 - The Internet of Garbage (book) Takes Cyber Crime Seriously


 High-end cyber crime generates   a great deal of attention. However, lesser crimes may be far more injurious but are given far less press. Here is a new book which presents these discrepancies. Enjoy the article below. 
=====================================================          
Sarah Jeong’s The Internet of GarbageTakes Cyber Crime Seriously

by Maddy Myers - Thursday, July 23rd 2015 at 2:11 pm from themsrysue.com
Sarah Jeong’s new book, The Internet of Garbage, tackles a topic as old as the Internet itself: cyber crime, online harassment, doxing, and what different virtual communities have done (or failed to do) in an effort to prevent these misdeeds. Unlike other recent attempts to unravel the mechanics of online harassment, such as Jon Ronson’s So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed, Jeong’s work seeks to delve deeper into how social media services should navigate these murky waters, as well as how the media approaches cyber crime — and which stories fall through the cracks.
In an interview at The Toast, Jeong elaborates:
When black women get harassed, either their stories never appear in the media, or their stories get retold, blaming the black woman for the ensuing harassment … This isn’t just an issue of equitable treatment in the media. It actually has serious policy ramifications. Some of the most prominent funded anti-harassment activism centers on carceral remedies — that is, resorting to police, prisons, and the criminal justice system. If you’re a person of color, trans, and/or a sex worker, you may be less willing to go to the police.
Another problem, according to Jeong, is the media’s simplistic focus on “mean words,” rather than on more concerted cyber-stalking attempts (e.g. looking up real estate records, going to a person’s place of work or private residence, taking photos of that place and/or documenting that person’s whereabouts … or worse).
Most of the time, that address is available through a data broker that sells information about individuals. There’s no reason why it should be that easy to physically locate and harm a private individual you got mad at on the Internet.
Jeong has also pushed back against ICANN’s recent efforts to make “commercial” domain registrations public. Since domain registrations include one’s address, this could affect folks who run e-businesses from their homes … such as bloggers who run content by subscription. But this legislation doesn’t consider small businesses, least of all those helmed by marginalized creators, says Jeong:
Everything is primarily driven by corporate interests. There is little thought for the safety and privacy of ordinary individuals. There are many changes that can be made at both the national and international level that would make all potential targets of harassment safer.
In my own anecdotal experience, cyber crime is rarely taken seriously by authorities. When a friend of mine privately told me a story about having been cyber-stalked this past week, I vague-tweeted about the topic and heard yet another disheartening, similar tale from another peer. The Toasttells Jeong that her book should be sent to every media outlet so that they better understand how to cover cyber-crime, and I don’t disagree; the media may help shed light on how poorly legislated these crimes are, and how little they are taken seriously.
Even the conventionally attractive white women whose stories have made it onto public media platforms have not received tangible justice, although at least their stories are heard. This story of a Canadian cyber-stalker has gotten some press lately; the UK has come down hard against online abusers. However, in the US, these stories are still rare; North Carolina is one of the few states in the US that has criminalized cyber-stalking, but it’s still very difficult to get a conviction. The Internet is still stereotyped as a place where anything goes, with no consequences. The result of that attitude? Bile splashes on marginalized people, and they never receive justice, particularly if they don’t fit the media profile of a “safe” virginal victim.
I’m looking forward to hearing more from Jeong, whose nuanced and well-researched approach to this systemic issue sounds refreshing. I got her book on Amazon today; it’s also available on iTunes 
================================================
Good luck and good Netiquette to all!

Netiquette Basics For The Job Application Process with Foreign Companies, Languages and Cultures


The Job Application Process with Foreign Companies, Languages and Cultures

The following is an excerpt from my soon to be published book " You're Hired, Super Charge Your Email Skills In 60 Minutes! (And Get That Job . . . )"  Look for an announcement here in August."No two languages are ever sufficiently similar to be considered as representing the same social reality.

"The worlds in which different societies are distinct, not merely the same world with different labels attached"
—Edward Sapir

I have reiterated in my books, something we have all directly experienced, the importance of recognizing the subtleties of communicating by email. When you communicate with someone from a different culture, region, country, or other demographic, effective communications becomes even more challenging.
More than ever, the world’s workforce is globalizing. It is commonplace for hiring processes to be located between or even among continents. Netiquette becomes even more critical in situations such as these. To address the differences in Netiquette for each major country is beyond the scope of this book, but here are some key principles and actions that need to be part of your Netiquette practices:
=====================================================
1.   Never make assumptions (I know I keep saying this but it’s true).
2.   Emails should be simple in every aspect.
3.   Take appropriate time to learn about key issues in a company’s culture especially if the company is overseas or conducts a large part of its business internationally.
4.   Pay particular attention to salutations and closings.
5.   Pay attention to time differences and plan to send emails accordingly.

Good luck and good Netiquette to all!
