Although I have a PhD in physics and have spent 10 years of my life achieving it, I now work as a Data Scientist. I made the transition a year ago and today I want to share my thoughts on this extreme turn in my career.
In this tutorial we will use modern Natural Language Processing techniques to find similar posts in a Facebook group. You have probably been in a situation where you want to post something in a Facebook group but you are not sure whether almost the same post already exists and is maybe just hiding on the next page. This technique will prevent you from bothering the group users with repeating questions :-)
In this tutorial, we will introduce you to the basics of how to work with time series in Python. For this we will use the packages Pandas, statsmodels (for some hypothesis testing) and matplotlib (for visualizations). Get comfortable, let's dig in!
Let's dive into the basics of unsupervised Machine Learning algorithms! In this weeks BaseCamp tutorial, we will show you the (probably) most common clustering algorithm: KMeans.
