Last week, I completed the second week of the Johns Hopkins’ The Data Scientists’ Toolbox on Coursera. Updated my GitHub account, learned about Markdown, and downloaded some packages to Rstudio.
I also tried to read a few good articles about Data Science. One of the best sources I found this week was, Data Elixir, a weekly collection of news, resources, and inspirations from around the web. Every week a new issue is delivered to your inbox. This was my first week receiving Data Elixir and all of the articles I’m posting come from this source.
- Reddit “Ask Me Anything” with Andrew Ng and Adam Coates
- Customer Data: Designing for Transparency and Trust
- 8 Possible Alternatives To The Turing Test
- The data science ecosystem, part 3: Data applications
- Recommending Music on Spotify with Deep Learning
A major question of mine about data science, is how do I find the data I’m looking for online? My next question is why is this data not publicly available? Here are two good sources from this week’s Data Elixir issue.
