Tip (4), Variable Explorer for both R and Python in RStudio

In recent past, frequent usage of both Rand Python by Data Scientists are considerably increasing. RStudio is preferred IDE for most of R users, though, there are Editors and Notebooks which serve for both languages, yet, switching between them is not easy. Especially for those who got used to RStudio “Environment” tab for exploring objects in current R sessions; though, writing/execution of  Related Favorite

Gradient Descent animation: 1. Simple linear Regression

This is the first part of a series of articles on how to create animated plots visualizing gradient descent. The Gradient Descent method is one of the most widely used parameter optimization algorithms in machine learning today. Python’s celluloid-module enables us to create vivid animations of model parameters and costs during gradient descent. In this … Read more Gradient Descent animation: 1. Simple linear Regression

Is your website leaking sensitive information?

There has been a lack of attention for XSLeaks (cross-site leaks) which result in the leaking of user information source Most developers are familiar and aware of the security vulnerabilities XSS (Cross-site scripting), CSRF (Cross-site request forgery) or SQL Injection, but there has been a lack of attention for XSLeaks (cross-site leaks) which can result … Read more Is your website leaking sensitive information?

The Coronavirus vs Voice Technology in Asia

How COVID-19 has accelerated a “voice technology moment” that could change communication forever Tokyo. Photo by author. The coronavirus has led to all kinds of innovation: Korea invented drive-through testing, Lithuania invented 3D-printed hands-free door handles, and at this point, nearly everyone has shifted their meetings and social events to a VoIP solution like Zoom. … Read more The Coronavirus vs Voice Technology in Asia

Getting Started with GANs Using PyTorch

We will see the ability of GAN to generate new images which makes GANs look a little bit “magic”, at first sight. A generative adversarial network (GAN) is a class of machine learning frameworks conceived in 2014 by Ian Goodfellow and his colleagues. Two neural networks (Generator and Discriminator) compete with each other like in … Read more Getting Started with GANs Using PyTorch

Using Pyomo from R through the magic of Reticulate

Pyomo is a python based open-source package for modeling optimization problems. It makes it easy to represent optimization problems and can send it to different solvers (both open-source and commercial) to solve the problem and return the results in python. The advantage of pyomo compared to commercial software such as GAMS and AMPL is the … Read more Using Pyomo from R through the magic of Reticulate
