Earlier this afternoon Colts Owner Jim Irsay tweeted that the Colts had agreed to a 6 – year extension with franchise quarterback Andrew Luck worth $140 million. The contract makes him the highest paid player in NFL history.Andrew has signed through 2021— Jim Irsay (@JimIrsay) June 29, 2016 Adam Schefter reported the guaranteed base compensation is around $63 million.Andrew Luck’s base salaries during each year of his contract: pic.twitter.com/IJPEdS1I5N— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) June 29, 2016Today on Speak for Yourself, Colin and Whitlock debated whether Luck is under the most pressure in the NFL after signing his massive deal. Luck missed 7 games last year after suffering a lacerated kidney, and struggled when he was on the field. With his new contract in hand, the fans and media will expect results regardless of what the Colts put around him.Colin sees Luck as an undervalued stock who’s unfairly taken heat for playing hurt while being surrounded by an awful roster, courtesy of GM Ryan Grigson.“The best player they’ve given him is T.Y. Hilton though the draft. That’s the best player they’ve given him.” Colin added, “Last year, he plays with a lacerated kidney, I could not host this show with a lacerated kidney. So we look at last year and go, ‘I’m not sure I buy Andrew Luck.’ Okay, then you sell the stock to me. I’ll buy all of it. This guy has been underwhelmed by the people around him. He’s carrying the franchise,” Whitlock thinks Luck shouldn’t get a break for not having weapons around him when Cam Newton made a Super Bowl while missing his top receiver.“Here’s how Andrew Luck is going to be judged. There’s a guy over in Carolina, who’s about the same age as him. Who lost Kelvin Benjamin, their top wide receiver. Carried his team to 15 victories in the regular season, all the way to the Super Bowl, got the MVP of the league. Whether fair or not, he’s going to be compared to that guy.”Even if Luck is under the most pressure in the league this year, it’s not like the former #1 pick, who was drafted to replace Peyton Manning, isn’t used to it.

For example, if the tracking of a metric is not consistent, how do you decide if your team should track down this bug? According to Lau’s method, it is only important to fix such a bug if it is affecting the key metric you’ve identified.Elsewhere at the show, Dean Wampler, consultant for TypeSafe, described how to process streams with Apache Spark. He said that using resilient distributed data sets in Spark allows developers to reuse large chunks of code. He said it’s the setup and teardown code that is different, rather than the core code, which can be reused on HDFS or any other data store, like Apache Cassandra.Todd Cioffi, director of RapidMiner University, discussed the shortcomings of business intelligence when it comes to predictive analytics. As an example, he described how business intelligence analytics can tell you, perhaps, that one in five customers will not buy your product a second time. But that information doesn’t help you figure out which actual customer will leave.“What you want to be able to do is take a look at an individual level and figure out the likelihood of those individuals leaving. Business intelligence tends to take a look at an aggregated overview and less at the individual person in a predictive fashion. Business intelligence answers only what it’s asked. So if you’re doing exploratory analysis, your exploration is based on what you can think of to ask. It’s tough to ask SQL ‘show me what’s in there.’ Still it’s dependent upon your analysis, first, to get you the answers, rather than letting data tell you what’s there,” said Cioffi.“Where business intelligence leaves off, predictive analytics picks up. It’s not that you shouldn’t be doing business intelligence, it’s that you shouldn’t be doing just business intelligence if you want your data to be smarter for you,” said Cioffi.Lau’s keynote is available here. The spotlight turned to data analysis and real-world business use cases at Big Data TechCon, which winds down today in San Francisco. Talk was of day-to-day work and decision processes needed to support large-scale Big Data operations, with topics such as Hadoop, Spark, NoSQL and traditional relational databases, and how they can be leveraged for data-based products.Gloria Lau, vice president at data at Timeful, discussed a method she uses to decide where her teams put their time. Lau was formerly the manager of LinkedIn’s data science team, and it was there she perfected this method.Her method begins with a classic quote from Donald Knuth: ”Premature optimization is the root of all evil.” To this end, she admonished attendees to ask themselves two questions when deciding what their priorities should be when building data products.These questions are: “What is the metric this product is trying to lift?” and “If your users gave you only one minute a day using the product, what would you want them to be doing?” She then applied these questions to a number of scenarios that could confront Big Data developers.
