Can machine learning assess the readability of texts?

For our latest Project Friday, we entered the CommonLit Readability competition on Kaggle. We learned a lot from working together on this cool NLP task. Stay tuned to see where this led us.

Our package is live! Meet tortoise, your starting point for building Machine Learning models in Python

Starting to build machine learning models using Python can surely be overwhelming due to the endless possibilities that this open source tool offers. Therefore, we built a Python package that guides (junior) data analysts and scientists through all the steps involved in building machine learning models with easy to use functions.

Corporate identity graphs in Python

Do you recognize feeling frustrated about the looks of the standard Python graphs? Or you just need your corporate identity to be reflected in these graphs to be able to directly use them in a presentation? Well, I feel you! This is exactly the problem I ran into when happily working within my Python scripts […]

We crunch(ed) Artificial Intelligence: The story continues

After almost seven months, we finally came back with a brand new Meetup! On the 15th of May we came together at our headquarters in Amersfoort. Although there were probably many who stayed home that night to watch football, still thirty people were joining our Meetup. Good choice because we had a really interesting evening! Jeanine Schoonemann started […]

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 […]

Education for the Next Generation: a Handsign recognition project in Python

“Could you create a handsign recognition model which we can use to teach High School students a bit more about A.I. in a fun way?”This is the question a few colleagues asked a couple of weeks ago, and ofcourse, the only real response here could be YES! I was immediately enthusiastic and started working on […]

Python & R vs. SPSS & SAS

When we’re working for clients we mostly come across the statistical programming languages SAS, SPSS, R and Python. Of these SAS and SPSS are probably the most used. However, the interest for the open source languages R and Python is increasing. In recent years, some of our clients migrated from using SAS or SPSS to […]
