## Happy Valentines day by Nerds

Real nerds on Valentines day graph hearts instead of drawing them. My drawing skills are not what I like them to be, my R skills are though! Therefore, let’s draw a heart in R instead on paper! dat<- data.frame(t=seq(0, 2*pi, by=0.01) ) xhrt<- function(t) 16*sin(t)^3 yhrt<- function(t) 13*cos(t)-5*cos(2*t)-2*cos(3*t)-cos(4*t) dat\$y=yhrt(dat\$t) dat\$x=xhrt(dat\$t) with(dat, plot(x,y, type=”l”, axes=FALSE, frame.plot=FALSE, […]

## Let R/Python send messages when the algorithms are done training

As Data Scientists, we often train complex algorithms in order to tackle certain business problems and generate value. These algorithms, however, can take a while to train. Sometimes they take a couple of hours, hours which I’m not going to spend just sitting and waiting. But regularly checking whether the training is done, is also […]

## Escape Room Hackathon – Bewakingsbeelden!

Ik, de wiskundige Piet A. Choras, zat tot voor kort onterecht vast voor overfitting en was mijn ontsnapping aan het plannen, ik kwam er iteratief achter dat ik het niet alleen kon en heb hulp ingeschakeld. Teams van analisten hadden een middag de tijd om mij te helpen te ontsnappen uit de Penitentiaire Inrichting (π) door (data) […]
