Assalamualaikum,

Pagi tadi lebih kurang 6:30 pagi,semasa dalam Iperjalanan ke pejabat, tafsiran ayat quran Al-Israa, ayat 44,triggered something in my mind(tak pasti macam mana nak spell triggered dalam bahasa).

Al-Israa [44] Langit yang tujuh dan bumi serta sekalian makhluk yang ada padanya, sentiasa mengucap tasbih bagi Allah dan tiada sesuatupun melainkan bertasbih dengan memujiNya; akan tetapi kamu tidak faham akan tasbih mereka. Sesungguhnya Dia adalah Maha Penyabar, lagi Maha Pengampun.

Sebabnya, dalam pengkajian BIG DATA,  aku selalu terfikir, kenapa kita tukar non-linear data kepada linear ? Sebab yg aku diberitahu adalah untuk mudah membuat prediction. kalu non-linear, kita susah sket. tetapi dalam masa yg sama, apabila linear telah dibentuk,kita boleh nampak seakan ada macam kesamaan.

Dalam ayat di atas, Allah s.w.t memberitahu yg semua makluk, termasuk lah planet di BIMA SAKTI itu bertasbih memuji Allah s.w.t.

Menurut Kepler's Law,

mengatakan, semua planet mengelilingi matahari itu mempunyai hubung kaitan mean solar distance and orbital period.

Attributes yg boleh diperhatikan ialah,

1. teratur.

2. linear, dalam satu kesaksamaan.

3. tetap.

Skrang, it triggers me to find more exploration untuk mengetahui hikmah alam berdasarkan panduan AL-QURAN-, dengan membuat deep dive analysis, e.g. transforming non-linear kepada linear.

ALLAHUAKBAR!!!

 

I enjoy reading the book "Insanely Simple: The obsession that drives Apple's Success" by Ken Segall. Sometimes, I wonder how can I adopt the method of "Simple" into my daily work. I am struggling in writing reports and at the same time wanted to do something which I like to do : Analytics. Unless, I have to make my report writing as simple as it is and spent more time with Analytics.

The "Simple" ideas I believe quoted from Albert Einstein. You can Google the words. 

Simple Internal audit report writing. Below are my view.

1. Imagine that the person (board of directors) does not know operations. So, the sentence must be not too long and not too short.

2. Choice of words.

3. Facts, facts, facts, facts.

4. What is the impact?

5. Lastly, why?why? why?

I think item (5) is the difficult item to explain in report. The reason is because we also does not know why we start the audit.

When I attend the MMU BIG DATA Analytics courses, the lecturer give 2 simple items. He claim that those from Statistical background intepreted the terms "Data Scientist" differently because statistics started with hypothesis (high level) then drill down to data and trying to prove the hypothesis (e.g. linear regression). But, "Data Scientist" originally (as he claimed) came from "Data Mining" which start from bottom, analyzing the data to up by interpreting the data into something meaningful.  Quite interesting to know such differences. However, the term "data scientist" should not be referred to an individual. But, it should be referred to a group of people which have different skills in mathematics, subject matter expert, programming and business analyst.

Sometimes ago, when I saw the diagram below by Swami, I wonder how could a person can go through such a long journey to become data scientist.

The long road to become a big data scientist

But sometimes audit make things difficult. I always tell myself that if I want to make changes, it should start from me, not from other people around us because when we changed, others will follow.

Internal audit has to be dynamic. It has to be updated with the current trends and it has to give good justification why we do this, why we don't, why we change words, why we change fonts, why and so on.

I was quite surprised when people start calling me 'Haji Ahmad Fairuz' or sometimes in short 'Haji Fairuz'. At the age of 36, in those days, it's very rare when people called you 'Haji'. Usually, on average Muslims went for Hajj after age of 50 years old. However, this is what we usually say, 'Rezeki from Allah' who had chosen me and my wife to go fo Hajj this year. Alhamdulilah.
