Steam Games Recommender

Hey all, it’s time for another machine learning blog. This time, I’m tackling recommendation systems. I’ve found this neat dataset, Steam Video games over at Kaggle. You should definitely check it out. We’ll be going from analyzing how people play these games, to how we can infer ratings from usage patterns. I’ll be implementing my […]

It’s over 70!

This is quite a late post for me, but I just want to detail here the session I taught three weeks ago. We have a large machine learning competition in Trend Micro and I volunteered to hold a boot camp for Trend Labs, the “Philippine division”, prior to the competition. Thinking that it was high […]

Deep Dive Wednesdays Week 1

Working on week 1 y’all. Week 1’s goal is to lay out the foundations for data science, mainly data exploration and feature engineering. We worked with IPython, wrangled with NumPy matrices, tussled with Pandas’ indexing and gazed at Matplotlib with amazement. A lot of it was syntactic sugar, and it does takes some time getting […]
