Evidence that Data Scientists should never be singers: The Overfitting music video
Finally irrefutable proof that Data Scientists should never become entertainers. Yes the evil that is the overfitting song has been released upon us. The words are scary and fitted over the overplayed Michael Jackson song Thriller. I know that many hang onto the magic song that was SVD, but I promise you that that song was purely an outlier in the realm of geek songs. The Overfitting song is more the norm.
So if you are a data scientist, predictive modeler or simple R programmer please do not sing! Just build better models and try not to overfit.
