An Intro to Deep Learning in Python

Deep learning is a type of machine learning that’s growing at an almost frightening pace. Nearly every projection has the deep learning industry expanding massively over the next decade. This market research report, for example, expects deep learning to grow 71x in the US and more than that globally over the next ten years. There’s […]

Python Generators

Python generators are a powerful, but misunderstood tool. They’re often treated as too difficult a concept for beginning programmers to learn — creating the illusion that beginners should hold off on learning generators until they are ready. I think this assessment is unfair, and that you can use generators sooner than you think. In this […]

Programming Best Practices For Data Science

The data science life cycle is generally comprised of the following components: data retrieval data cleaning data exploration and visualization statistical or predictive modeling While these components are helpful for understanding the different phases, they don’t help us think about our programming workflow. Often, the entire data science life cycle ends up as an arbitrary […]

Data Retrieval and Cleaning: Tracking Migratory Patterns

Advancing your skills is an important part of being a data scientist. When starting out, you mostly focus on learning a programming language, proper use of third party tools, displaying visualizations, and the theoretical understanding of statistical algorithms. The next step is to test your skills on more difficult data sets. Sometimes these data sets […]

Generating Climate Temperature Spirals in Python

Ed Hawkins, a climate scientist, tweeted the following animated visualization in 2017 and captivated the world: This visualization shows the deviations from the average temperature between 1850 and 1900. It was reshared millions of times over Twitter and Facebook and a version of it was even shown at the opening ceremony for the Rio Olympics. […]

Jupyter Notebook for Beginners: A Tutorial

The Jupyter Notebook is an incredibly powerful tool for interactively developing and presenting data science projects. A notebook integrates code and its output into a single document that combines visualisations, narrative text, mathematical equations, and other rich media. The intuitive workflow promotes iterative and rapid development, making notebooks an increasingly popular choice at the heart […]

Introduction to AWS for Data Scientists

These days, many businesses use cloud based services; as a result various companies have started building and providing such services. Amazon began the trend, with Amazon Web Services (AWS). While AWS began in 2006 as a side business, it now makes $14.5 billion in revenue each year. Other leaders in this area include: Google—Google Cloud […]
