When working with data, we often have the convenience of working with small, confined datasets. These datasets themselves may not be preprocessed — they, for example, may need null values to be substituted, spelling errors to be corrected, stray symbols removed — but the are small enough to be composed…

Another CompTIA certification worth pursuing is Security+. In 2019, 75% of employers in the IT field required certification in Security+ as a certification for new hires. Security+ begins with studies in the devices business’ use when structuring their organizations. …

In the world of Data Science, Linux is often the tool of choice. Unlike Macintosh or Windows, Linux offers a sandbox of sorts as an operating system that coders and scientists alike enjoy. Linux is also extensively used in penetration testing. The reason Linux is often the tool of choice…

In Python, every object has a docstring. A docstring is a helpful bit of text that can give us more insight into how an object operates, along with the functions or methods that can be operated upon or with it. To find the docstring of an object in Python, we…

With Cloud IoT, the cloud acts as the server. This means the network can by dynamically allocated to satisfy demand. You don’t own the hardware, which means you only pay for the resources you use. You don’t have to manage infrastructure, just your sensors and devices, and scaling.

Google Cloud…

Artificial intelligence is the simulation of human intelligence in computers. It starts with a set of data. You present that data to an ML algorithm. The ML algorithm figures out the important relationships and infers a result based on what it learns.

Machine Learning is fundamentally different from an expert…

The objective of computer vision is to make computers see and interpret the world like humans and possible even better than us.

Vision is not a simple task. First, the light rays of the ball pass through both eyes and strike on their respective retinas. The retinas do some prelim…

Google Cloud Storage is a unified object storage. You can store and or retrieve data from anywhere in the world, at any time. GCS is a solution for volumes of structured and unstructured data.

Data doesn’t just means rows and columns of numbers, anymore. You may want to store unstructured…

Pub/Sub interacts with Core, Functions, and Dataflow. Pub/Sub is a real time messaging service. Decouples sender and receiver with asynchronous communications. Holds data up to seven das. It does not guarantee first in and first out; so not guaranteed to get things in order. Can be the single ingest for…

You can apply data transformations with cloud dataflow. This is simplified stream or batch data processing. Cloud Functions is a lightweight compute solution for developers to create single purpose, standalone functions that respond to cloud events without the need for your to manage a server or runtime environment. Cloud Bigtable…
