Cognitive Services With R

Kevin Feasel



Steph Locke shows how to use the Microsoft Cognitive Services Text Analytics API within R:

We have some different languages and we need to first do language detection before we can analyse the sentiment of our phrases

# Construct a request
response<-POST(cogapi, add_headers(`Ocp-Apim-Subscription-Key`=cogapikey), body=toJSON(mydata))

Now we need to consume our response such that we can add the language code to our existing data.frame. The structure of the response JSON doesn’t play well with others so I use data.table’s nifty rbindlist. It is a **very good* candidate for purrr but I’m not up to speed on that yet.

Check out the whole post; Steph makes it look easy.

Neil Saunders declutters a complicated visual with a simple scatterplot: Sydney’s congestion at ‘tipping point’ blares the headline and to illustrate, an interactive chart with bars for city population densities, points for commute times and of course, dual-axes. Yuck. OK, I guess it does show that Sydney is one of three cities that are low density, […]

Using ggpairs To Find Correlations Between Variables In R

Akshay Mahale shows how to use the ggpairs function in R to see the correlation between different pairs of variables: From the above matrix for iris we can deduce the following insights: Correlation between Sepal.Length and Petal.Length is strong and dense. Sepal.Length and Sepal.Width seems to show very little correlation as datapoints are spreaded through out the plot area. Petal.Length and Petal.Width also shows strong correlation. Note: The […]
