Let me explain what it is about What is FAIR […]


The frustrated Data Scientist

I am talking a lot to different people in my domain – either on conferences or as I know them personally. One thing most of them have in common is one thing: frustration. But why are people working with data frustrated? Why do we see so many frustrated data scientists? Is it the complexity of […]

Learn new data science tools during the corona lockdown : predict time series at scale with R

A college of mine, Vivien Roussez, wrote a nice library in R to predict time series. The package is called “autoTS” and provides a high level interface for univariate time series predictions. It implements many algorithms, most of them provided by the forecast package. You can find the package as an open source project on GitHub. Over the last […]

Serverless Analytics
