Why is data cleaning important and how to do it the right way?

An erroneous bit of information in your price data can lead your Machine Learning model to yield false results. NOBODY would want that to happen. This blog is all about answering your data cleaning questions in the simplest form. It deals with the basic challenges in cleaning data like missing and duplicate data, and provides easy solutions.

Ensemble Methods - Bagging And Boosting

It is possible to improve the performance of decision trees. We present to you the concepts of Bagging and Boosting. This blog focuses on Bagging and Boosting to build decision trees in parallel and in sequence respectively. It then ensembles the output to improve the forecast accuracy and reduce the variance.

How To Install TensorFlow GPU (With Detailed Steps)

TensorFlow is a core open source library to help you develop and train ML models. Combine this with the superior performance of the GPUs, you can drastically reudce the time and efforts. This blog shares the steps to Tensorflow GPU installation on a Nvidia GPU system in detail. With this guide you will be able to successfully install the Tensorflow GPU even as a complete beginner.

Introduction to XGBoost in Python

XGBoost has been able to parallelise the tree building component of the boosting algorithm. Thus, it reduces computation time and consumes fewer resources and this leads to a dramatic gain in terms of processing time as we can use more cores of a CPU or even go on and utilise cloud computing as well. This blog explains all about it as well as provides a Python code to predict long-short on US stocks.
