For many people, python has a strong reputation. Since its first appearance in 1991, python has become one of the most popular interpreted languages, along with Perl, Ruby, and others.
Python and Ruby have become particularly popular since 2005 or so, due to their increased use for building websites using various web frameworks, such as Rails (Ruby) and Django (Python).

In a previous article, I wrote about the tree types of recommender systems:
However, it is extremely important to understand how can we evaluate recommendation systems automatically. This allows us to perform rapid development of the system we are working on, and evaluate different experiment parameters and choose the best performing one.
Earlier, many of the recommendation algorithms were evaluated based on their accurate predictions. However, this was not the best approach to evaluate recommender systems. Even though predicting users’ exact needs is crucial, it is not enough in most of the cases.

In this article I will talk about strategic intelligence, how to apply it in organizations and how to be a strategically intelligent manager.
The views of researchers and experts have varied on the concept of strategic intelligence, and this disparity is due to the relative newness in the study of its dimensions.
Some believe that it is a systematic and continuous process to produce the necessary information in a practical form to facilitate long-term decision-making. I think that this definition focuses on the use of strategic intelligence in the decision-making process.

At the end of this story, you will know everything you need about Pandas and its usage in data science and data analysis, if you program in python and deal with data, I recommend you to bookmark this story.
If you are interested in data science I strongly recommend you to check my previous story about the most wanted libraries in python;
The main goal of Pandas is to perform the so-called Data Munging, which is intended to make changes to unordered raw data, so that these change result in transforming the data into another form that can be understood…
The theory behind spell checker using the noisy channel, and the implementation of spell checker in python for any language you want.
Natural language correction is a task whose goal is to correct an erroneous text. Consider for example the following sentence:
I likes to dirnk some a tea
There are three errors in the given example: subject-verb agreement error (I likes instead of I like), article error (extra article a before tea) and a misspelled word dirnk.
Given these errors, one can identify two main problems of natural language correction: spell checking (spelling correction) and grammar checking (grammatical error…
In this article, I will present the definition of differential privacy and preserving privacy and personal data of users while using their data in training machine learning models or driving insights using data science technologies.
Differential privacy describes a promise, made by a data holder, or curator, to a data subject:
You will not be affected, adversely or otherwise, by allowing your data to be used in any study or analysis,no matter what other studies, data sets, or information sources, are available.
At their best, differentially private database mechanisms can make confidential data widely available for accurate data analysis,without resorting…
