Monte Carlo Simulation in Python

Kristian Larsen has a couple of posts on Monte Carlo style simulation in Python. First up is a post which covers how to generate data from different distributions:

One method that is very useful for data scientist/data analysts in order to validate methods or data is Monte Carlo simulation. In this article, you learn how to do a Monte Carlo simulation in Python. Furthermore, you learn how to make different Statistical probability distributions in Python.

You can also bootstrap your data, reusing data points when building a set of samples:

A useful method for data scientists/data analysts in order to validate methods or data is Bootstrap with Monte Carlo simulation In this article, you learn how to do a Bootstrap with Monte Carlo simulation in Python.

Both posts are worth the read.

Logistic Regression Defaults and sklearn

Giovanni Lanzani shares some thoughts on scikit-learn defaults for Logistic Regression: If you read the post, you can see that the biggest problem with the choice is that, unless your data is regularized, you will train a model that probably under performs: you are unnecessarily penalizing it by making it learn less than what it […]

Python and R Data Reshaping

John Mount takes us through a couple of data shaping packages: The advantages of data_algebra and cdata are: – The user specifies their desired transform declaratively by example and in data. What one does is: work an example, and then write down what you want (we have a tutorial on this here).– The transform systems can print what a transform is going to […]
