In this SkillsCast recording (film, code, slides) you will see a demo by Ian & Bart to illustrate four areas of data science using Python. The goal is to introduce a number of these areas that may not be familiar to more traditional Python developers.
In this demo we cover:
- Using the IPython Notebook and Scikit-learn to begin solving the Kaggle Titanic machine learning problem.
- Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning for social media analysis using scikit-learn.
- Using Pandas and QGIS to solve the Future Cities London hackweekend challenge.
- High Performance Python using profiling techniques, Cython and new tools like Numba to calculate at C-like speeds
Bart Baddeley is a machine learning consultant, who has recently left academia and is interested in seeing how his skill set can be applied to real world commercial big data problems.
Ian Oszvald is co-founder of ShowMeDo and FivePoundApps
