Top 10 Things You Should Never Say In A Data Science Interview

Data science interviews can be cumbersome, and rejections are merely the beginning. While an academic degree, relevant training, skills, and course work are essential to break into data science, it does not guarantee a job or job satisfaction.

When it comes to interviews, there are hundreds of reasons for a company to reject a candidate. Of course, it makes more sense for a company to reject a good candidate than to hire a bad one. But, a talented data science professional stands above all, making sure to stay ahead of the curve. Apply>>

Coding skills can help data scientists collaborate with different stakeholders and projects and work…

The Tolkien estate has smote JRR Token — but the NFTs persist

It seems our prediction that a Lord of the Rings-themed “JRR Token” cryptocurrency was destined for the fires of Mount Doom was accurate — the World Intellectual Property Organization (or WIPO) has declared that it violated a trademark belonging to the estate of author J.R.R. Tolkien, and ordered that one of the project’s web domains be transferred to that estate (via the Financial Times).
If you’re unfamiliar with JRR Token (not Tolkien), here’s the lore — it was a cryptocurrency project that drew heavy inspiration from The Lord of the Rings. Its tagline was “The One…

Microsoft calls blockchain domains ‘the next big threat’

“The next big threat” is how Microsoft’s latest annual security report characterizes domain names written into a distributed ledger maintained across a constellation of computers instead of stored in a traditional, centralized registry.Storing domain names on a blockchain can make them difficult to shut down or even trace to their owners. It also leaves them inaccessible without special software or settings.“In recent years, we have observed blockchain domains integrated into…

Tokens are a New Digital Primitive, Analogous to the Website

Major computing waves generally have two eras: the skeuomorphic era and the native era.
In the skeuomorphic era, the design thinking is largely adapted from older domains. For example, the early web was mostly digital adaptations of pre-internet activities like letter writing and mail-order shopping. Websites back then were mostly read-only.
It took about a decade for technologists to start seriously exploring the idea that websites could be read/write, where users generate the content. This…

How Low-Code Analytics Will Democratize Data

Click to learn more about author Dan Robinson.

I’d wager that most people who build websites today know very little HTML. That’s fine – most websites are built via low-code tools that hide code-level details behind GUIs. This lets website builders focus on creating products instead of worrying about CSS formatting. Web design has gone low-code, and other domains seem sure to follow. In fact, Gartner has predicted that low-code platforms will account for 65% of app…

Building a Structured Financial Newsfeed Using Python, SpaCy and Streamlit – KDnuggets

By Harshit Tyagi, Data Science Instructor | Mentor | YouTuber

One of the very interesting and widely used applications of NLP is Named Entity Recognition(NER).

Getting insights from raw and unstructured data is of vital importance. Uploading a document and getting the important bits of information from it is called information retrieval.

Information retrieval has been a major task/challenge in NLP. And NER(or NEL — Named Entity Linking) is used in several domains(finance, drugs, e-commerce, etc.) for information retrieval purposes.

In this tutorial post, I’ll show you how you can leverage NEL to develop a custom stock market news feed that lists down the buzzing stocks on the internet.

Path to Full Stack Data Science – KDnuggets

By Jawwad Shadman Siddique, Graduate Researcher at Texas Tech.

Full Stack Data Science has become one of the hottest industries in the field of computer science. Starting from traditional mathematics to advance concepts like data engineering, this industry demands a breadth of knowledge and expertise. Its demand has seen an exponential rise in online resources, books, and tutorials. For beginners, it’s overwhelming, to say the least. Most of the time, beginners start with either a python course, a machine learning course, or some basic mathematics course. But many times, a large number of them do not know where to start. And with so many resources to go to, many of them keep scraping through resources. Moving between Udemy, edX, Coursera, and YouTube, many hours are lost.

Best Data Science Certifications In 2022

Over a span of the recent few years, data science has become an integral part of all the major industry sectors, ranging from agriculture, marketing analytics, public policy, to fraud detection, risk management, and marketing optimization. One of the goals of data science is to resolve the many issues that preside within the economy at large, and its other branches and individual sectors, through the use of machine learning, predictive modeling, statistics, and data preparation.

Data science emphasizes the utilization of the general methods but without changing its application, no matter what its domain is. In this way, this approach is a lot more different from the other traditional statistics scenario that usually tends to focus solely upon seeking specific solutions to particular domains or sectors.

Top 20 Data Science and Machine Learning Projects in Python (Part-II)

Guys! I hope you all are enjoyed reading my earlier article Part – I 10/20, and I trust that would be useful for you. Let’s discuss the rest of the project quickly.

11. Learn to prepare data for your next machine learning project.

Problem Statement & Solution

When you’re dealing with NLP based problem statement, we must focus on “Text Data” preparation before you can start using it for any NLP algorithm. The foremost step is that text cleaning and processing is an important task in every machine learning project, even if we are working on the text-based task and making sense of textual data. So, when dealing with text, we must take extra causes for Text Classification, Text Summarization, understanding Tokenization, and Bag of Words preparation.

How to Be an Encouraging Supervisor for Your Data Science Intern

Ever since we started our data science career, someone has been managing us. Thus, when the supervising opportunity presented itself — naturally, I looked up to my supervisor to draw inspiration to craft the internship.

Ask yourself these questions: When you joined the team, how did they make you feel? What kind of guidance did they give to become familiar with the work? I know what you’re thinking. Maybe you’re having a hard time with your manager. In that case, what could they have done differently to make your life at work more manageable? You get the idea.

Here’s why: irrelevant of whether you’ve had a positive experience, they’ve been in the industry much longer than you are. You can learn all the new tools and technologies in data science, but nothing can replace their experience working with clients, different domains, handling juniors, and more.

Introduction to Automated Machine Learning

What Are AutoML Systems?

 
 
Machine learning (ML) – as a subfield of the broader domain of Artificial Intelligence (AI) – is taking over all kinds of industries and business domains. This includes retail, healthcare, automotive, finance, entertainment, and more. With this wider adoption across all kinds of operations and by a workforce with a diverse set of skills, learning how to work with machine learning is becoming increasingly important.

Due to this expansion of ML usage by the ever-increasing cross-section of employees in an organization, it has become critical to develop systems that can be used by business professionals of all sorts of backgrounds. And that means these systems cannot exclusively be coding or programming oriented like the ones used by software engineers or data scientists.
