Data Scientist’s toolkit — How to gather data from different sources

In Python, a file is characterized as either text or binary, and the difference between the two is important Text files are structured as sequence of lines. Each line is terminated with a special character called EOL or End of line character.

Predicting How Expensive A Healthcare Provider is for the Government

Applying Linear Regression to Medicare Data As Metis Data Science Bootcamp students, we were tasked to build a linear regression model for our first individual project. Simple enough right? Just draw a line through data. Not so fast! As a healthcare professional, I was excited to use this algorithm to … Read morePredicting How Expensive A Healthcare Provider is for the Government

How 90% of Drivers Can be “Above Average” or Why You Need to be Careful When Talking Statistics

An example of a negatively skewed distribution is age at death. In this dataset, there are, unfortunately, some deaths at a relatively young age, lowering the mean and skewing the graph leftward (negatively). Age at death in Australia, a negatively skewed distribution (Source) In the case of a negative skew, … Read moreHow 90% of Drivers Can be “Above Average” or Why You Need to be Careful When Talking Statistics

What Is Neuralink: A Look At What It Is, What It Wants to Be, and What It Could Become

Say hello to your sixth sense When I first took science class in elementary school, we learned about the five senses. Maybe not far into the future, that information might be as outdated as the idea of nine planets in our solar system (sorry, Pluto). This might be thanks to … Read moreWhat Is Neuralink: A Look At What It Is, What It Wants to Be, and What It Could Become
