Cognitive Services With R

R

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.

Using Cohen’s D for Experiments

Nina Zumel takes us through Cohen’s D, a useful tool for determining effect sizes in experiments: Cohen’s d is a measure of effect size for the difference of two means that takes the variance of the population into account. It’s defined asd = | μ1 – μ2 | / σpooledwhere σpooled is the pooled standard deviation over both cohorts. […]

Comparing Iterator Performance in R

Ulrik Stervbo has a performance comparison for for, apply, and map functions in R: It is usually said, that for– and while-loops should be avoided in R. I was curious about just how the different alternatives compare in terms of speed. The first loop is perhaps the worst I can think of – the return vector is […]
