This book is a practical guide to problems that commonly arise when developing a machine learning project. The book's topics are: Exploratory data analysis Data Preparation Selecting best variables Assessing Model Performance More information on predictive modeling will be included soon. This book tries to demonstrate what it says with short and well-explained examples. This is valid for both theoretical and practical aspects (through comments in the code). This book, as well as the development of a data project, is not linear. The chapters are related among them. For example, the missing values chapter can lead to the cardinality reduction in categorical variables. Or you can read the data type chapter and then change the way you deal with missing values. You¿ll find references to other websites so you can expand your study, this book is just another step in the learning journey. It's open-source and can be found at

“We live in the age of data. In the last few years, the methodology of extracting insights from data or "data science" has emerged as a discipline in its own right. The R programming language has become one-stop solution for all types of data analysis. The growing popularity of R is due its statistical roots and a vast open source package library. The goal of “Beginning Data Science with R” is to introduce the readers to some of the useful data science techniques and their implementation with the R programming language. The book attempts to strike a balance between the how: specific processes and methodologies, and understanding the why: going over the intuition behind how a particular technique works, so that the reader can apply it to the problem at hand. This book will be useful for readers who are not familiar with statistics and the R programming language.

If you are tired of reading without understanding and want to learn the value of big data and artificial intelligence simply and quickly, then keep reading... Today 91% of Python programmers are not quite prepared. This is what the IT companies say, according to a recent survey. Do you know why? The reason is that they have no notions of artificial intelligence, so future programmers will no longer find work without having knowledge of this particular field that is constantly evolving. Artificial intelligence has made great strides over the years, and by 2024 it is estimated that 77% of programmers will have to be experts in this field to implement it in the various programming languages. So if you are such a programmer or aspirant and ignore the importance that Python data analysis and artificial intelligence have in our future, then you will be cut off from the business world. The solution? You need to learn these things and, above all, do it in a clear, simple, and practical way. The goal of Python for Data Science is to give you an advanced level training on Python, artificial intelligence, and deep machine learning as quickly as possible. What are some points you will learn in this book? - Artificial Intelligence: How Does it Work? How is it Used? - The Key Elements of Machine Learning - Machine Learning vs Deep Learning - Data Science vs Business Intelligence - The Data Science Lifecycle - The Value of Big Data Explained to a Child - 4 Tips for Data Cleaning and Organizing Your Data - Python Data Analysis 360° - 6 Different Machine Learning Algorithms - How to Handle Data Visualizations Python for Data Science is perfect for those who already look to the future and want to ensure a job for the next 20 years by beating the competition, even if you know nothing about computer codes and you have never turned on a computer in your life.

"We live, today, in world of big data. The amount of information collected on human behavior every day is staggering, and exponentially greater than at any time in the past. At the same time, we are inundated by stories of powerful algorithms capable of churning through this sea of data and uncovering patterns. These techniques go by many names - data mining, predictive analytics, machine learning - and they are being used by governments as they spy on citizens and by huge corporations are they fine-tune their advertising strategies. And yet social scientists continue mainly to employ a set of analytical tools developed in an earlier era when data was sparse and difficult to come by. In this timely book, Paul Attewell and David Monaghan provide a simple and accessible introduction to Data Mining geared towards social scientists. They discuss how the data mining approach differs substantially, and in some ways radically, from that of conventional statistical modeling familiar to most social scientists. They demystify data mining, describing the diverse set of techniques that the term covers and discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the various approaches. Finally they give practical demonstrations of how to carry out analyses using data mining tools in a number of statistical software packages. It is the hope of the authors that this book will empower social scientists to consider incorporating data mining methodologies in their analytical toolkits"--Provided by publisher.

Jer Thorp’s analysis of the word “data” in 10,325 New York Times stories written between 1984 and 2018 shows a distinct trend: among the words most closely associated with “data,” we find not only its classic companions “information” and “digital,” but also a variety of new neighbors—from “scandal” and “misinformation” to “ethics,” “friends,” and “play.” To live in data in the twenty-first century is to be incessantly extracted from, classified and categorized, statisti-fied, sold, and surveilled. Data—our data—is mined and processed for profit, power, and political gain. In Living in Data, Thorp asks a crucial question of our time: How do we stop passively inhabiting data, and instead become active citizens of it? Threading a data story through hippo attacks, glaciers, and school gymnasiums, around colossal rice piles, and over active minefields, Living in Data reminds us that the future of data is still wide open, that there are ways to transcend facts and figures and to find more visceral ways to engage with data, that there are always new stories to be told about how data can be used. Punctuated with Thorp's original and informative illustrations, Living in Data not only redefines what data is, but reimagines who gets to speak its language and how to use its power to create a more just and democratic future. Timely and inspiring, Living in Data gives us a much-needed path forward.
