A key strength of NLP (natural language processing) is being able to process large amounts of texts and then summarise them to extract meaningful insights.
In this example, a selection of economic bulletins in PDF format from 2018 to 2019 are analysed in order to gauge economic sentiment. The bulletins in question are sourced from the European Central Bank website. tf-idf is used to rank…Continue

The use of Docker in conjunction with AWS can be highly effective when it comes to building a data pipeline.
Let me ask you if you have ever had this situation before. You are building a model in Python which you need to send over to a third-party, e.g. a client, colleague, etc. However, the person on the other end cannot run the code! Maybe they don't have the right libraries installed, or their system is not configured correctly.
Whatever the reason, Docker alleviates this…Continue

The housing market has undergone quite a change in the past decade, with more stringent lending criteria for housing having been enforced.
A key objective of financial institutions is to minimise the risk of mortgage lending by ensuring that the debtor is ultimately able to repay the loan.
In this example, multilevel modelling techniques are used to analyse data from the Federal Home Loan Bank…Continue

Hotel cancellations can cause issues for many businesses in the industry. Not only is there the lost revenue as a result of the customer cancelling, but this can also cause difficulty in coordinating bookings and adjusting revenue management practices.
Data analytics can help to overcome this issue, in terms of identifying the customers who are most likely to cancel – allowing a hotel chain to adjust its marketing strategy accordingly.
To investigate how machine learning can…Continue

Are you looking to learn python for data science but have a time crunch? Are you making your career shift into data science and want to learn python? In this blog, we will talk about learning python for data science in just 30 days. Also, we will look at weekly schedules and topics to cover in python.
Before directly jumping to python, let us understand about the usage of python in data…Continue
There is a library called threading in Python and it uses threads (rather than just processes) to implement parallelism. This may be surprising news if you know about the Python's Global Interpreter Lock, or GIL, but it actually works well for certain instances without violating the GIL. And this is all done without any overhead -- simply define…Continue
Python and R are the two most commonly used languages for data science today. They are both fully open source products and completely free to use and modify as required under the GNU public license.
But which one is better? And, more importantly, which one should you learn?
Both are widely used and are standard tools in the hands of every data scientist.
The answer may surprise you – because as a professional data scientist, you should be ready to deal with…Continue
There has been much hype surrounding deep learning and data science learning in recent times, and one of the cornerstones of deep learning is the neural network. In this article, we will look at what a neural network is and get familiar with the relevant terminologies.
In simplest terms, a neural network is an interconnection of neurons. Now the question arises, what is a neuron? To understand neurons in deep learning, we first…Continue

I’d like to introduce a series of blog posts and their corresponding Python Notebooks gathering notes on the Deep Learning Book from Ian Goodfellow, Yoshua Bengio, and Aaron Courville (2016). The aim of these notebooks is to help beginners/advanced beginners to grasp linear algebra concepts underlying deep learning and machine learning. Acquiring these skills can boost your ability to understand and apply various data science algorithms. In…Continue
Now that Christmas and the New Year are behind us the nights are becoming a little longer with each passing day. Nevertheless, there's still loads of cold winter nights left to endure (unless you're in the Southern Hemisphere, in which case – throw me a shrimp on the barbie!).
It's time to dust off your New Year resolutions from last year (remember those?) and get ready for a new start, a new you and learn some new data skills.
I’ve thrown together a collection of five…Continue

In a previous blog post we have seen how to build Convolutional Neural Networks (CNN) in Tensorflow, by building various CNN architectures (like LeNet5, AlexNet, VGGNet-16) from scratch and training them on the MNIST, CIFAR-10 and Oxflower17 datasets.
It starts to get interesting when you start thinking about the practical applications of CNN and other Deep Learning methods. If you have been following the latest technical developments you probably know that CNN’s are…Continue

Technology has remarkably changed the way we live today, there is no denial to it. Compared with our ancestors, we stand far away from them in using different technologies for our day-to-day works.
So many technologies are developed in the past couple of years that have revolutionized our lives, and it’s impossible to list each of them. Though technology changes fast with time, we can observe the trends in which it changes. Last year, 2016 had bought so many fresh…Continue
