Data Science Cartoons: a top seven list by DataCamp

To give this years April Fools' day a more analytical touch, we decided last week do a little poll on internet cartoons. We asked our friends and colleagues to select their favourite Data Science Cartoons on the web, and organized a voting session to construct a top 5 list. (You can always share your own favourites in the comments.) We proudly present you the winners of the April Fools' 2014 Data Science Cartoons awards:

Number One: The Cloud 

Data Science Cartoons

Number Two: A Study on Statistics

Data Science Cartoons

Number Three: Pacman Statistics


Number Four: Dilbert One


Number Five: Haloween Statistics


Number Six: Dilbert Two


Number Seven: XKCD Correlation


Disqualified for the competition, but still one of the most funny data science cartoons:

The importance of preprocessing in data science and the machine learning pipeline III: scaling your data to combat noise

by Hugo Bowne-Anderson

In two previous posts, I explored the role of preprocessing data in the machine learning pipeline. In particular, I checked out the k-Nearest Neighbors (k-NN) and logistic regression algorithms and saw how scaling numerical data strongly influenced the performance of the former but not that of the latter, as measured...

The importance of preprocessing in data science and the machine learning pipeline II: centering, scaling and logistic regression

by Hugo Bowne-Anderson

In the first article in this series, I explored the role of preprocessing in machine learning (ML) classification tasks, with a deep dive into the k-Nearest Neighbours algorithm (k-NN) and the wine quality dataset. There you saw that centering and scaling numerical data improved the performance of k-NN for a... Read More
