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
