Data Scientist
statistician who knows more programming than other statisticians and a programmer who knows more statistics / ML / maths than other programmers
A Data Scientist can be a better BI manager / expert
A BI manager / expert also loaded with statistics / ML / maths is again a Data Scientist
Databases

Key Value
Describing Data
Nominal : Categorical, discrete
Ordinal : natural orderings, ranking
Interval : Similar to ordinal with defined difference
Ratio : similar to interval with a natural 0
Hypothesis
Null Hypothesis : refers to a general statement or default position that there is no relationship between two measured phenomena
A Statistical Model can be thought of as a pair (y,P) where Y is set of possible observations and P is probability Distribution over Y
A statistical model is a formalization of relationships between variables in the form of mathematical equations ( source wiki)
Examples :
Errors & Bias
Type 1 : False positive - Incorrect rejection of Null Hypothesis
Type 2 : False Negatives -incorrect failure to reject a false null hypothesis
Bias : Missing from the Target by a quantity / measure
Machine Learning
Supervised : Data set is labeled.
Example linear/logistic regression, SVM
Unsupervised : Finding Structures and relationships on unlabeled data.
Example : K-means, DBSCAN, K- NN
Construction and study of systems that can learn from data. Examples , explain it like 5!
Classification : problem of identifying to which of a set of categories a new observation belongs
Clustering : Grouping of samples into groups such that samples belonging to the same group / cluster are more similar
Regression : takes a group of random variables, thought to be predicting Y, and tries to find a mathematical relationship between them
ML
Support Vector Machines
Linear Regression
K-means
K-Nearest Neighbors
Naive Bayes
Bayesian Networks
Decision Trees
Random Forests
Regression Trees
Hierarchical Clustering
Perceptron Training Algorithm
Artificial Neural Networks
Forecasting : Making statements (predicting) about the events which are about to occur. Examples - Weather Forecasting, trading, sales forecasting etc.
Optimizations : Minimizing / maximizing a cost function, examples gradient descent, K-means.
