Introduction Exploratory data analysis (EDA) is an approach to data analysis to summarize the main characteristics of data. It can be performed using various methods, among which data visualization takes a great place. The idea of EDA is to recognize what information can data give us beyond the formal modeling or hypothesis testing task. In other words, if initially we don’t have at all or there are not enough priori ideas about...
What is Exploratory Data Analysis Exploratory data analysis (EDA) is a powerful tool for a comprehensive study of the available information providing answers to basic data analysis questions. What distinguishes it from traditional analysis based on testing a priori hypothesis is that EDA makes it possible to detect — by using various methods — all potential systematic correlations in the...
In the modern world, the information flow which befalls on a person is daunting. This led to a rather abrupt change in the basic principles of data perception. Therefore visualization is becoming the main tool for presenting information. With the help of visualization, information is presented to the audience in a more accessible, clear, visual form. Properly chosen method of visualization can make it possible to structure large data arrays,...

Accessing and analyzing media content is a fascinating part of data analytics. It allows to follow trends of public interest over time or to see how stories evolve (e.g.  newslens ). While many media outlets offer APIs, it is cumbersome to collect them individually. News API closes that gap and allows to search and retrieve live articles from all over the web. .caret, .dropup > .btn > .caret { border-top-color: #000...
The random forest algorithm is the combination of tree predictors such that each tree depends on the values of a random vector sampled independently and with the same distribution for all trees in the forest. It can be applied to different machine learning tasks, in particular, classification and regression. Random Forest uses an ensemble of decision trees as a basis and therefore has all advantages of decision trees, such as high accuracy,...
