The Top Skills for a Career in Datascience in 2021

Datascience is exploding in popularity due to how it’s tethered to the future of technology, supply-demand for high paying jobs and being on the bleeding edge of corporate culture, startups and innovation! Students from South and East Asia especially can fast track lucrative technology careers


Jump Search in Python

Introduction Finding the right data we need is an age-old problem before computers. As developers, we create many search algorithms to retrieve data efficiently. Search algorithms can be divided into two broad categories: sequential and interval searches. Sequential searches check each element in a data


Search Algorithms in Python

Introduction Searching for data stored in different data structures is a crucial part of pretty much every single application. There are many different algorithms available to utilize when searching, and each have different implementations and rely on different data structures to get the job done.


Basic AI Concepts: A* Search Algorithm

Introduction Artificial intelligence in its core strives to solve problems of enormous combinatorial complexity. Over the years, these problems were boiled down to search problems. A path search problem is a computational problem where you have to find a path from point A to point


Sorting Algorithms in Python

Introduction Sometimes, data we store or retrieve in an application can have little or no order. We may have to rearrange the data to correctly process it or efficiently use it. Over the years, computer scientists have created many sorting algorithms to organize data. In


Overview of Classification Methods in Python with Scikit-Learn

Introduction Are you a Python programmer looking to get into machine learning? An excellent place to start your journey is by getting acquainted with Scikit-Learn. Doing some classification with Scikit-Learn is a straightforward and simple way to start applying what you’ve learned, to make machine


Run-Length Encoding

In this article we’ll go over how the run-length encoding algorithm works, what it’s used for, and how to implement its encode and decode functions in Python. Run-length encoding (RLE) is a very simple form of data compression in which a stream of data is


Minimax with Alpha-Beta Pruning in Python

Introduction Way back in the late 1920s John Von Neumann established the main problem in game theory that has remained relevant still today: Players s1, s2, …, sn are playing a given game G. Which moves should player sm play to achieve the best possible


Quicksort in Python

Introduction Quicksort is a popular sorting algorithm and is often used, right alongside Merge Sort. It’s a good example of an efficient sorting algorithm, with an average complexity of O(nlogn). Part of its popularity also derives from the ease of implementation. We will use simple
