I started my data science journey back in 2016. At that time, machine learning boot camps were much popular. The only requirement of the course was basic Python knowledge. I felt so happy because I used to play with Python codes at that time, so I opted for the course.

The usual practice of human beings — when we’re learning something new — is to try and collect as much material from different places. We may think that these resources will help us learn more. And, the more variety of materials you have, the more choice you can have to…

Python programming got the hype and the attention because of the popularity of data science. As of now, in 2021, we have two famous programming languages Python and R, for data science and analytics. But, if we talked about back in 2016, we were having a single famous programming language for data science modeling, Python.

Indeed, Python is also used for web development, and its Django & Flask framework is so much used in many industries. But, we have many other programming languages like Java, Javascript with its popular library React that can do that same web development efficiently. …

I have been in the data science field for the last half-decade when python programming came into the trend. Back then, in 2016, neural networks and deep learning were just some buzzy words. At that time, there was a hype about Google self-driving cars and reinforcement learning. But, most of the data science enthusiasts were not even aware of the working of neural networks.

Today in 2021, most companies are adopting a data science strategy to make more revenue by automating different scenarios and replacing dozens of IT people with a single data scientist who can automate the task of…

Image processing is the phenomenon of manipulating an image to extract features from it.

In today’s world of computer vision and deep learning, different algorithms for image processing are heavily used to carry out edge detection, recognition, classification from a dataset of images.

Sometimes these algorithms are also applied to videos frame by frame to extract features from them.

In today’s article, we will take a look at the 5 best Python libraries that might help you to carry out manipulation of images like cropping, grayscaling etc.

An important aspect of data science is visualising the data. When we have a fairly large set of data that we cannot comprehend only by going through it, we need to plot them in different formats to understand better. Visualisation packages make this job a lot easier for data scientists.

This article will talk about seven Python visualisation packages that you must try to plot your data. We have excluded Matplotlib from the list as it is fairly common and used by all data science enthusiasts.
