Machine learning and AI
As we move on from thinking about User Experience (UX) simply in terms of a flat User Interface (UI) and towards voice and conversation considerations, Mauricio Perez takes us through his design process in relation to creating a chatbot that users don’t hate.
One of the reasons doubters gave for assuming Uber wouldn’t work, was that ride-sharing essentially performs the same service as taxis.
The use of Python for data science and analytics is growing in popularity and one reason for this is the excellent supporting libraries (NumPy, SciPy, pandas, Statsmodels (ref), Scikit-Learn, and Matplotlib, to name the most common ones). One obstacle to adoption can be lack of documentation: e.g. Statsmodels documentation is sparse and assumes a fair level of statistical knowledge to make use of it. This article shows how one feature of Statsmodels, namely Generalized Linear Models (GLM), can be used to build useful models for understanding count data.
