Contrasting Plotly And Seaborn

Natasha Sharma contrasts the Seaborn and Plotly libraries for visualizing data:

It was important to use a library which can provide easy and high-class interactivity. Before embedding the plots into my website code, I tested a few different libraries like Matplotlib and Seaborn in order to visualize the results and to see how different they can look. After few trials, I came across Plotly library and found it valuable for my project because of its inbuilt functionality which gives user a high class interactivity.

In this post, I am going to compare Seaborn and Plotly using – Bar Chart and Heatmap diagram. I will be using Breast cancer dataset to visualize these plots. But before jumping into the comparison, the dataset I used needed preprocessing like data cleaning so, I followed steps.

In this case, the contrast is mostly lines of code versus visual quality; read on for more.

Using cdata To Created Faceted Plots

Nina Zumel shows how to use the cdata package to create faceted ggplot2 plots: First, load the packages and data: library("ggplot2") library("cdata") iris <- data.frame(iris) Now define the data-shaping transform, or control table. The control table is basically a picture that sketches out the final data shape that I want. I want to specify the x and y columns of the plot […]

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++. […]
