Is it cheaper to fill up your gas tank in the evening? Many car drivers have their own theories and myths about refuelling. Our colleague Jakob tackled 6 of these myths using statistics in his latest blog post.
We went to the Frankfurt Data Science Meetup where our Head of Data Science gave a talk about explainable AI. If you missed it, here are the main takeaways!
We at STATWORX are opening our doors for anyone who wants to learn more about data. Our open workshop is designed for R-beginners and provides the perfect mixture between theory and practice. Participants achieve first insights into data science and programming with R. The workshop will be held in German at our office in Frankfurt. There is a limit of …
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.
This blogpost explains step by step how you can build your own Docker Image and include R scripts. With this you can have scripts running at every image’s beginning.
It’s Valentine’s day, making this the most romantic time of the year. But actually, already 2018 was a year full of love here at STATWORX: many of my STATWORX colleagues got engaged. And so we began to wonder – some fearful, some hopeful – who will be next? Therefore, today we’re going to tackle this question in the only true way: with data science!
With the holidays approaching, one of the most discussed questions at STATWORX was whether we’ll have a white Christmas or not. And what better way to get our hopes up, than by taking a look at the DWD Climate Data Center’s historic data on the snow depth on the past ten Christmas Eves? But how to best visualize spatial data? …
In the last 23 days I presented one function each day from the helfRlein package we created here at STATWORX. I hope you found some of the functions useful and had some fun discovering new ways of doing things with R! Since today is Christmas, only one thing remains to say: To see all functions you can either check out …
This little helper adds functionality to the base R function
strsplit – hence the same name!
