Data Storytelling with Python

Crafting a narrative for the Titanic Dataset

One of the most important skills a data scientist can learn is how to craft a convincing story using the given data. Though we tend to think of our work as being objective and technical, encapsulated in the adage “Numbers don’t lie”, we should also be aware of its more…

How to derive more features from an image to improve clustering results

In a previous article, we explored the idea of applying the K-Means algorithm to automatically segment our image. However, we only focused in on the RGB Color Space. …

How to use the K-Means algorithm to automatically segment an image

So far most of the techniques we’ve gone over have required us to manually segment the image via its features. But we can actually use unsupervised clustering algorithms to do this for us. In this article we shall go over how to do just that.

Let’s begin!

As always, we…
