Best dynamically-typed programming languages for data analysis

One can seriously argue about what programming language is the best for data analysis, but there is one universal metric that can define your choice: speed of calculations. Therefore, the word "best" in the title means the languages that lead to most performant applications. If most performant program can also be written in an easy-to-use, easy-to-learn, dynamically-typed…

5 Pro-Tips For Data Scientists To Write Good Code

The following advice is built from my experience working as a data scientist on a variety of projects across different data & engineering teams. Many data scientists (myself included) do not come from a computer science or software development background, so may not have formal training or good habits in code writing. These tips should help data scientists work collaboratively to write good code and build models in a way that will be easier to…

Dashboards in R

This is a tutorial to show how to implement dashboards in R, using the new "flexdashboard" library package.

this new library leverages these libraries and allows us to create some stunning dashboards, using interactive graphs and text. What I loved the most, was the “storyboard” feature that allows me to present content in Tableau-style frames. Please note that for this you need to create RMarkdown (.Rmd) files and insert the code using the…

Running Calculations on Separate Threads

In order to prevent my programs from freezing up while running long calculations, I generally run the calculations on separate threads.  In Java, this process can be accomplished by separating the GUI from processing.  In the code below, a thread for an instance of MyProcessing would be invoked using start(): e.g. “(new MyProcessing()).start();” would run indefinitely until T is made null.  T can be made null by calling stop() or by directly making T null.  Often when the GUI is closing, I…

R for hackers

Last Sunday at Trivadis Tech Event, I talked about R for Hackers. It was the first session slot on Sunday morning, it was a crazy, nerdy topic, and yet there were, like, 30 people attending! An emphatic thank you to everyone who came!

R a crazy, nerdy topic, - why that, you'll be asking? What's so nerdy about using R?

Well, it was about R. But it was neither an introduction ("how to get things done quickly with R"), nor was it even about data science. True, you…

Objectification of Incidents

Probably like most people, I tend to recognize data as a stream of values. Notice that I use the term values rather than numbers although in practice I guess that values are usually numerical. A data-logger gathering one type of data would result in data all of a particular type. Perhaps the concept of “big data” surrounds this preconception of data of type except that there are much larger amounts. Consider an element of value in symbolic terms, which I present below: there is an index such…

Common Coding Situations in Java

 This blog contains some snippets of code that I tend to use in Java.  I acknowledge that somebody else writing this blog might include different code.  Except for a short course at Sun Educational Services, most of my Java programming skills are self-taught.  I’m unsure if people with formal backgrounds in computer science might have different styles and conventions.  Mine have been shaped primarily by my needs.

A Technique to Rescue Non-Parametric Outlier Data Using SAS®

For many scientists and data analysts, outliers are like a ‘black box’ in conventional statistics. Many believe that these outlier observations arise due to errors or due to improper procedures in the experiment. Majority of them eliminate the outliers unscientifically by brute force. Some identify them statistically but discard them as if they are junk. Some understand importance of the outliers but they do not know how to deal with it. If you are one among them or interested in scope of…

Overcoming Aspects of Social Disablement in Data

When the performance of an employee is evaluated, ideally there are no externalities to complicate the analysis. If the employee has a computer that is constantly freezing up - or the servers in the company frequently operate slowly - the employee's performance data will reflect the functionality and effectiveness of these systems. If the company occupies a highly competitive market, declining sales data is attributable at least in part to competition rather than the behaviours of employees.…

Structural Relationships in Data

The first computer program that I encountered mimicking or emulating human interaction through language was called "Eliza." The version that I knew ran on the Commodore PET. It communicated in English. Eliza made comments that made some sense but which indicated lack of understanding of the conversation. If a person mentions "mother," Eliza might…
