DataViz: Definition, objectives and uses.
Data visualization, or DataViz for short, is a bunch of techniques used to turn raw data into something more understandable. The concept has been around for centuries, starting with William Playfair's inventions in the 18th century. DataViz is used all over the place, like in analytical reports and in media. It's a powerful tool to communicate data science concepts. Dataviz makes complex data easier to understand with visual representations. Python is a popular language to explore and analyze datasets, and it's also used for DataViz. Matplotlib is one of the first Python libraries for making and manipulating graphs, and there are others like Seaborn to modernize and simplify graphics. There are also specialized libraries like Holoviz and Geoviews for creating mapped data. Data visualization packages have great documentation and are easy to use. Data visualization lets you make and save graphs that really summarize information from a data set.

Introducing PyScript - How to Run Python in Your Browser.

Py Script: Run Python in the Browser for Data Science Py Script is a JavaScript framework for creating Python apps in the browser. Data scientists can use it to create websites based on their Python code. It's based on Pyodide, which is a Python port of Web Assembly/Emscripten. With Myscript, you can write Python code in HTML using components like py-env and py-script, and even have a Python REPL (read-eval-print-loop) in your browser! Here are some examples of what you can do with Py Script: write a simple "Hello World" program, or create diagrams using the bokeh library. PyScript makes it easier to create visual and interactive presentations of data products.

Exasol forecasts for 2024: 5 trends based on artificial intelligence that data organizations should keep an eye on.

In 2023, AI adoption skyrocketed, impacting every aspect of data analysis. Organizations shifted from a "haphazard" approach to AI to one that's more "strategic". The democratization of data led to more training sessions for skills based on analysis. Organizations would spend more time and cash experimenting with AI. FinOps (financial operations) is now a top priority for CIOs (chief information officers) who want to save cash. Pressure from AI management is increasing on the C-suite (top execs). Taking trends into account could help better justify data strategies and make better use of data.

The Benefits Of Being A Mentor In The Field Of Data Science

Data science candidates have a lot of options when it comes to tools and learning methods. Mentors and industry experts are there to help students in this complex field. Mentoring gives access to a network of professionals, and it's great for career growth. Junior data scientists really appreciate mentors because they help them understand the basics and get them started. Mentors get a lot of benefits from mentoring, like one-on-one tutoring and help with setting learning goals. They also help mentees understand the logic behind solving data problems. Mentoring can help both mentors and mentees deepen their knowledge of data science principles. It can also help mentors focus on specific aspects of data science, which in turn helps them enhance their own experience and expertise. Being a data science mentor gives companies access to talented people. The AIM Mentoring Circle program is a community-based program that encourages and supports long-term relationships between data scientists and their mentors.

How to choose a BI tool

BI tools help you analyze and visualize data to make decisions. The choice of BI tool depends on your workflow, how it integrates with other systems, how you deploy it, and how you control versions. Dashboards aren't completely obsolete, but they're changing how we do data analysis and use BI tools. A new type of reverse ETL tool gives BI benefits right inside the tools you already know and like.

Text-Based Emotion Recognition Using Deep Learning Approach
The paper suggests a text-based model for emotion recognition, which combines deep learning (DL) and machine learning (ML) techniques. It uses three datasets: IS NEAR, WASSA, and an emotion and stimulus data set. The model excels at dealing with multiple texts and emotion vocabulary, and the ML classifier (SVM) produces the highest accuracy rate (78.97%). The Bi-GROUP DL model achieves the most accurate result (79.46%), while the CNN DL model has the highest F1 score (80.76%). The hybrid model, which combines both DL and ML techniques, achieves a precision of 82.39%, recall of 80.40%, F1 score of 81.27%, and accuracy of 80.11%. More potential classifiers and pooling strategies are planned for future testing to further improve the results.

Rules for the Use of Chart Types
Pie charts convey information about fractions of total volume more accurately than bar charts. Pie charts do not require the audience to mentally translate fractional or percentage values of portions. Bar charts can be problematic for comparing parts accurately, but sometimes it is more important to show fractions of the total volume. Pie charts and line charts are visually obvious, making them easier to interpret. Bar charts do not make it visually obvious that the chart shows a breakdown of the total.

How to Improve Your Data Quality
Poor data quality costs organizations an average of $12.9 million and complicates data ecosystems. The focus on data quality (DQ) has increased in enterprise systems as organizations increasingly use data analytics to make business decisions. Gartner predicts that by 2022, 70% of organizations will closely monitor the level of data quality through metrics, improving it by 60%. Data quality is directly linked to the quality of decision making, providing better leads, customer insights, and improved customer relationships. R&D managers need to set data quality standards that can be followed by all business units in the organization. Data quality profiling helps identify corrective actions and provides valuable information to generate ideas for improvement plans. DQ dashboards provide comprehensive information about data quality and help make good business decisions based on reliable quality data.

Synthetic data
Synthetic data is becoming a valuable resource for developing fraud detection and spam identification algorithms. The benefits of synthetic data include cost savings, increased speed, agility, enhanced intelligence, and privacy. By 2030, synthetic data will supplant real data in machine learning/deep learning models based on artificial intelligence. Synthetic data generation will become an integral part of the next generation machine learning workflow. The scientific basis, such as the trade-off between accuracy, utility and privacy, for synthetic data is still missing.

What is a PRD or Product Requirement Document?
PRD (detailed list of specifications for product development) is an important document that defines the product requirements. The PRD provides an idea of what the final product should accomplish and details all the features that will be required to achieve those goals. The clearer the PRD, the more likely it is that the final product will achieve the desired results. A PRD provides tremendous clarity to all stakeholders and maximizes the chances of satisfaction with the end result. PRD consists of various sections including document title, stakeholders, technical and business objective, market analysis and target demographics, product overview and product requirements. In today's business world, clearly defining product requirements can be a major challenge. The PRD is a working document that can be fleshed out as the product is developed. Product requirements will inevitably change over time, and the PRD must have the flexibility to make improvements on the fly.
