Off the Staff - C82: Works of Nicholas Rougeux Seeing music I can't read music but I can parse it. The talent of reading music has always escaped me which is a little ironic considering I grew up in a musical family. Talk: How to Visualize Data Last week, I gave one of the visualization primer talks at BioVis in Dublin. My goal was to show people some examples, but also criticize the rather poor visualization culture in bioinformatics and challenge people to do better. Here is a write-up of that talk. Seán O’Donoghue introduced me by calling me “infamous” for speaking my mind and criticizing things, which was the perfect setup for my talk. I had originally planned a more academic talk about data mapping etc., but I think this will have more impact in the end.

Data visualisation: what’s next? – Signal Noise – Medium The trends of data visualisation are forever shifting and changing as the data climate evolves at an ever faster pace. I’ve put together some thoughts on trends that I have identified in the last five or more years, where we are now and where, I believe, some of the focus is going. Meaning of data Let’s start with how we think about data and how it is processed, which is demonstrated very well by this data evolution flow: Simply speaking, you start with raw data — data that has been recorded by sensors, people or any other means and stored in its rawest form as numbers, symbols or words. The One-Stop Shop for Big Data Today, I’m going to explain in plain English the top 10 most influential data mining algorithms as voted on by 3 separate panels in this survey paper. Once you know what they are, how they work, what they do and where you can find them, my hope is you’ll have this blog post as a springboard to learn even more about data mining. What are we waiting for? Let’s get started! Here are the algorithms: 1.

One Chart, Twelve Tools · Lisa Charlotte Rost 17 May 2016 Which tool or charting framework do you use to visualize data? Everybody I’ve met so far has personal preferences (“I got introduced to data vis with that tool!”, “My hero uses that tool and she makes the best charts!”). Often we keep working with the first not-entirely-bad tool or language that we encountered. I think it can’t hurt to have a wider view of the options out there: To maybe discover better tools than the ones we use; but also to reassure us that the tools we use ARE really the best (so far). Design Better Data Tables – Mission Log – Medium Design Better Data Tables Poor tables. Where did they go wrong? A Practical Intro to Data Science — Zipfian Academy - Data Science Bootcamp Are you a interested in taking a course with us? Learn more on our programs page or contact us. There are plenty of articles and discussions on the web about what data science is, what qualities define a data scientist, how to nurture them, and how you should position yourself to be a competitive applicant. There are far fewer resources out there about the steps to take in order to obtain the skills necessary to practice this elusive discipline.

Apache Zeppelin 0.7.0-SNAPSHOT Documentation: Data Ingestion Data Discovery Data Analytics Data Visualization & Collaboration Multiple Language Backend Apache Zeppelin interpreter concept allows any language/data-processing-backend to be plugged into Zeppelin. Currently Apache Zeppelin supports many interpreters such as Apache Spark, Python, JDBC, Markdown and Shell. Adding new language-backend is really simple. Learn how to create your own interpreter. Visualising Networks Part 1: A Critique This is the first post of a series on network visualisation. Thanks to the facilitated access to network analysis tools and the growing interest in many disciplines towards studying the relations structuring datasets, networks have become ubiquitous objects in science, in newspapers, on tech book covers, all over the Web, and to illustrate anything big data-related (hand in hand with word clouds.). Unfortunately, the resort to networks has reached a point where in a conference I heard a speaker say: “Since this is mandatory, here is a network visualisation of these data.
