The Importance of Exploratory Data Analysis


Duration: 25 mins
Luke Metcalfe
Data Scientist, Microburbs

Endlessly tweaking machine learning models will rarely get you the best results. Backed with practical examples in Python/pandas/scikit-learn/Jupyter, this talk explains why you are better off combining new datasets and understanding how they fit into the context of the given problem. You will also learn why you can't rely on business people to give you all the context. No more doing data without understanding what it means.
