Word Clouds In Python

Allison Tharp shows how to generate a word cloud using Python:

Every week, someone on Reddit posts a “word cloud” on all of the NFL team’s subreddits.  These word clouds show the most used words on that subreddit for the week (the larger the word, the more it was used).  These word plots are always really fascinating to me, so I wanted to try to make some for myself.  In this tutorial, we’ll be making the following word cloud from my board game stats twitter feed, @BGGStats

Looks like the implementation is fairly straightforward, so check it out.

Comparing TensorFlow Versus PyTorch

Anirudh Rao compares PyTorch to TensorFlow: For small-scale server-side deployments both frameworks are easy to wrap in e.g. a Flask web server. For mobile and embedded deployments, TensorFlow works really well. This is more than what can be said of most other deep learning frameworks including PyTorch. Deploying to Android or iOS does require a non-trivial amount of work in TensorFlow. You don’t have to rewrite the entire inference portion of your model in Java or C++. […]

Thinking About Font Sizes

Stephanie Evergreen shares some good information on font sizes: Did you know that you regularly read type set in size 8, or even smaller? In printed materials, captions and less important information (think: photograph credits, newsletter headline subtext, magazine staff listings) are usually reduced to something between 7.5 to 9 points. We generally read that […]
