As a REST API, Livy provides Spark interaction without any need of a Spark configuration on your client. Once being able to communicate with the API Spark code can be submitted from everywhere.
Besides working hard to provide our clients with cutting-edge Machine Learning solutions, we are also big fans of all things culinary here at STATWORX. But can we apply some of those algorithms to make us better cooks? This blog article explores the unlikely union of Data Science and baking!
Want to obtain a specific dataset from a website which does not have an API? In this post, I explain how to do this by scraping data using Python, how you determine whether it is allowed to scrape a specific page and more.
Could you #BeatTheAI? We let deep learning have a go at Super Mario’s first level and compared it to human players. Here we explain how we did it!
Data Science Einsteiger stehen immer wieder vor der gleichen Frage: Welche Programmiersprache sollte man als Erstes lernen? Die Wahl fällt meistens auf eine der beiden großen Anbieter, R oder Python. Mit diesem Blogartikel wollen wir bei der Suche nach der geeigneten Programmiersprache helfen.
Our latest tool development at STATWORX: random boost, an algorithm twice as fast as gradient boosting, with comparable prediction performance.
We at STATWORX use mostly R or Python for our projects. But why not both? With the help of the reticulate package we can use Python within R. Here we show an example of how to train a Support Vector Machine.
In today’s blog post, we show you how to improve the interactivity of Plotly histograms with automatically new rebinning.
In this blog we will explore the plotly library for python and R. We show how plotly is structured and use the LA Metro Bike dataset as an example to create interactive plots.
In this blog we will explore the Bagging algorithm and a computational more efficient variant thereof, Subagging. With minor modifications these algorithms are also known as Random Forest and are widely applied here at STATWORX, in industry and academia.
