Data

Jupyter experimentation

Further to recent videos on Jupyter notebook, I have been doing some simple experimenting to get the feel of this.]

This reat for writing and data visualisation. As the following two example screenshots show. I have not fully written the code here, but I have made modifications. The table now shows total rows and columns after I did some research and figured out how to count columns.

Pandas data science tutorial

So following on from previous posts, here is a Tutorial for the Pandas data framework (if that is the right term). Hopefully it is useful.

How to Install Anaconda (Python) and Jupyter Notebook on Windows 10

Further to my post on Jupyter notebook, I am posting a link to another tutorial on how to install Anaconda and Jupyter notebook on Windows 10.

If you are using Linux or another operating system then there are other tutorials that will cover this.

Jupyter Notebook intro

If you are interested in Sciences and I think with this specifically data science or science generally then it seems that Jupyter notebook is very popular and powerful tool.

The following is an introductory video.

Jupyter Notebook Tutorial: Introduction, Setup, and Walkthrough

If there is interest, perhaps we can look in to this at a future STEM group meeting and try and invite someone along who may be able to help explain and or demonstrate further.

Facebook and personal data, the farce carries on.

Not a week goes by without Facebook or rather its parent company Meta Being in the news. A recent article, raises yet more questions about what happens to our personal data once Facebook / Meta get hold of it.

The GDPR is very clear as to how data can be used, the fact Facebook appear unable to control what goes on, shows they are not fit for purpose. Companies or individuals that use Facebook could end up complicit in any data misuse.

The problem probably arises as YOU sign up to Facebook and therefore consent to them using your data, photos etc.

This is why CHOICE is important. I don't have a problem with education establishments using Facebook for student communication, I just won't use it. I do object to people assuming I use Facebook.

CyberSecurity part 27

Build Your Own Linux

This looks like a really useful tutorial for anyone wanting to build their own GNU/Linux system from scratch. So this also ties in to this series as being able to build robust, secure systems is essential. A good way to do this is build your own.

Learning the R statistical language

During a recent conversation, with a member of a job seeking buddy group that I am a member of, we had a brief chat about the R programming language. This is designed and optimised to help with statistics, allows graphs to be produced from data and also integrates with other software such as LaTeX, Python and more.

Learning R is probably not difficult, the hardest part with learning something is finding the right resources to help. To this end I have found a collated a few links below.

The Links below could be useful generally if you are going to be running R on a GNU/Linux system then knowledge of the command line may be useful. I have also included a link to the study support forum.

Google Analytics declared illegal in the EU

This news has just broken.

Could have some interesting implications, even though the UK has left the EU, the UK has adopted the GDPR.

A good step for people currently using google analytics would be to swtich to something like Matomo (see link below) which is an alternative.

Reverse Image Search

Latest resource in the Data Detox kit from Tactical Tech is reverse image searching. This helps you identify the source of an image, which in turn helps you differentiate between accurate and misinformation.

These resources are well worth checking out. I am still planning on trying to do a talk on privacy at a future STEM group event.

Could be something to discuss at the STEM group meeting or via Discourse or on Mastodon.
