Machine Learning is as hot of a topic as you can find in futuristic technology. In my opinion, understanding Machine Learning at a level above beginner is absolutely necessary for the next set of up and coming business executives around the world. You’re not going to be able to explain your product without being able […]
This is a bit off the beaten path, but I wanted to write down my 2017 goals, and it only felt comfortable in a setting like this. Education: I plan to take 2017 to move from slightly-above-beginner in Machine Learning (specifically Deep Learning with Self-Driving Cars) to somewhere around intermediate. For too long I’ve been […]
Lately I’ve been working on a self-driving robotic car, and I wanted to share a simple piece of code to fix a problem I was having. If you’re running a raspberry pi without a display, the common way to manipulate the pi is via ssh. To SSH into the raspberry pi, you need the IP […]
The main visualization/plotting tool I use is Plotly. This plotting platform works with many different programming languages, but I, of course, mostly use it with Python. Here’s a quick primer showing you how to make your first plot in Plotly! Plotly works well in conjunction with pandas through the use of a package called cufflinks. We’ll […]
I love startups, and I love entrepreneurship. I’m not alone in this, and I’m not alone in coming up with sometimes good and mostly bad ideas for startups. A lot of times, the startup idea is only a slight change to an existing model, but one I thought would really revitalize that model. I’ve decided […]
Cron is a job scheduling tool in Unix based systems that you can use to schedule “jobs.” I often use it to launch Python scripts at specific intervals. Set up an automated job in cron is actually really, really simple, but something that many people think is complex because of the format. Luckily, you can […]
Something I had to do quite often in my old job, when I was dealing with 1tb of data daily, was write decently efficient code. To do so, I use a mixture of two things: 1) cProfile. This tells you what functions are taking the most time. It may be installed on your system, and […]
