Frequency Table – Python

A small script I wrote just because I happened to need it. Generates a quick and more "easy-to-read" frequency table for ranges specified in the bins. Simple Frequency Table CodeTakes a list (sample), separates them by bins, and gives a frequency table with histogram In [1]: #Imports import pandas as pd import seaborn as sns In [2]: #Give list sample = [10, 15, 12, 17, 22, 14, 23, 8, 15, 11, 17, 12, 16, 26, 12, 11, 9, 16, 15, 24, 12, 17, 16, 14, 19, 13, 10, 15, 19, 20, 10, 25, 14, 15, 12, 22, 7, 28, 16, 9] #Put list into df df = pd.DataFrame(sample, columns=['nums']) In [3]: #Set bin sizes bins = [5, 9, 13, 17, 21, 25, 29] In [4]: #Put into dataframe newdf = pd.DataFrame(pd.cut(df['nums'], bins=bins).value_counts()).sort_index() newdf.reset_index(inplace=True) #Convert to String newdf['index'] = newdf['index'].astype(str) In [5]: #Set 'easy-to-read' names for bins left = newdf['index'].str.split(',').str[0].str.split('(').str[1].astype('int32') + 1 right = newdf['index'].str.split(',').str[1].str.split(']').str[0] fullname = left.astype(str) + ' -' + right newdf['index'] = fullname In [6]: #cummulative frequency newdf['cumfreq'] = newdf['nums'].cumsum() #relative frequency newdf['relfreq'] = newdf['nums'] / newdf['nums'].sum() #cummulative relative frequency newdf['cumrelfreq'] = newdf['relfreq'].cumsum() #Add column names newdf.columns =['Class Interval', 'Frequency', 'Cummulative Frequency', 'Relative Frequency', 'Cumulative Relative Frequency'] In [7]: #Show frequency table newdf Out[7]: Class...

Keras and Tensorflow Pt III – Classification Example

This is a good simple example of a classification problem utilizing Keras and Tensorflow. In addition, I'm utilizing early stopping in an attempt to avoid overfitting in the model. You'll notice this take effect as the model stops training well before the 600 set epochs. Keras / Tensorflow Classification - ExampleHere we're going to attempt to utilize Keras/Tensorflow to predict the whether or not an individual has cancer. The data being used can be seen on my github below: https://github.com/kaledev/PythonSnippets/blob/master/Datasets/Keras/cancer_classification.csv Data Imports and EDA In [1]: import pandas as pd import numpy as np import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import seaborn as sns In [2]: df = pd.read_csv('DATA/cancer_classification.csv') Here we can see the dataset is fairly well balanced in terms of classification of the labels, if the dataset was unbalanced then we might see issues with overfitting.

Choosing the right number of layers/neurons for a Neural Network (Python)

This seems to be a very confusing subject for most, and I've had difficulty while learning how to setup Keras NN models as the addition/subtraction of layers and neurons creates vastly different outcomes in model. Normally I wouldn't just link out to others, but there is a very well written synopsis found on StackExchange below that lays it out in a very simple fashion. Very brief summary: Input (first) layer: Neurons = Number of features in the datasetHidden layer(s): Neurons = Somewhere between 1 and the amount in the input later (take the mean); Number of hidden layers: 1 works for *most* applications, maybe none.Output (last) layer: exactly 1 https://stats.stackexchange.com/questions/181/how-to-choose-the-number-of-hidden-layers-and-nodes-in-a-feedforward-neural-netw Meaning in the case of a dataset with 20 features: #Example Keras Classification model model = Sequential() model.add(Dense(20, activation='relu')) model.add(Dense(10, activation='relu')) model.add(Dense(1, activation='sigmoid')) model.compile(loss='binary_crossentropy',optimizer='adam') ...

Keras and Tensorflow Pt II – Regression Example

This is a more complex example of Keras, utilizing Regression. This utilizes a good sized dataset from Kaggle, but does contain a little bit of data cleansing before we can build out the model. Unfortunately the model we end up building isn't perfect and requires more tuning or some final dataset alterations, but it's a good example none the less. More information below. Keras / Tensorflow Regression - ExampleHere we're going to attempt to utilize Keras/Tensorflow to predict the price of homes based upon a set of features. The data being used comes from Kaggle: https://www.kaggle.com/harlfoxem/housesalesprediction Imports In [1]: import pandas as pd import numpy as np import matplotlib.pyplot as plt import seaborn as sns Data Exploration and Cleansing In [2]: df = pd.read_csv('DATA/kc_house_data.csv') Since we're going to predict prices, we can do a quick distribution. We can see the vast majority sit around 500k, and we have some outliers all the way out to 7m+ (but very few). In [3]: plt.figure(figsize=(15,6)) sns.distplot(df['price']) Out[3]: <AxesSubplot:xlabel='price'> One thing we may want to do is get rid of these outliers (at least to an...

Keras and Tensorflow Basics in Python – Simple Example

Below is a small example showing how to utilize Keras/Tensorflow 2.0 to predict a value utilizing a small dataset. More explanations to follow in the Jupyter notebook below... Keras / Tensorflow Basics - A Simple ExampleThe dataset utilized here is fake, for the sake of example use only. It contains a price and two "features". We're assuming the dataset is a price listing of gemstones, and based on the features we can predict what the price of a new gemstone added to the list may be. The data can be found here. In [1]: #Imports import pandas as pd import numpy as np import seaborn as sns Data In [2]: df = pd.read_csv('Keras/fake_reg.csv') In [3]: df.head() Out[3]: price feature1 feature2 0 461.527929 999.787558 999.766096 1 548.130011 998.861615 1001.042403 2 410.297162 1000.070267 998.844015 3 540.382220 999.952251 1000.440940 4 546.024553 1000.446011 1000.338531 In [4]: sns.pairplot(df) Out[4]: <seaborn.axisgrid.PairGrid at 0x18188b92e48> This is a very simply dataset, but the pairplot can show us how the two features may correlate to pricing.

Kaggle Submission: Titanic

I've already briefly done some work in the dataset in my tutorial for Logistic Regression - but never in entirety. I decided to re-evaluate utilizing Random Forest and submit to Kaggle. In this dataset, we're utilizing a testing/training dataset of passengers on the Titanic in which we need to predict if passengers survived or not (1 or 0).

Grand Totals and Subtotals in SQL Server

Just one of those things you may not know existed - the ROLLUP clause. It's very useful for totaling. Are you used to doing something like this? SELECT customer, sum(sales) from table UNION SELECT 'Total', sum(sales) from table The problem here is that on larger datasets, this can really be a pain in terms of performance. ROLLUP can be extremely quick, but the syntax may not be straight forward. Here's an example of summing sales in AdventureWorks2017 with a Grand Total. USE AdventureWorks2017 SELECT SalesOrderID, sum(LineTotal) FROM Sales.SalesOrderDetail where SalesOrderID in ( '43659', '43660', '43661', '43662', '43663' ) GROUP BY SalesOrderID WITH ROLLUP Notice I've added a WITH ROLLUP at the end of my GROUP BY. This creates the grand total. However, I'm left with a NULL for the SalesOrderID. To solve this I wouldn't want to use a coalesce, because a NULL might be valid elsewhere. Instead we should use the GROUPING function. USE AdventureWorks2017 SELECT CASE WHEN GROUPING(SalesOrderID) = 1 THEN 'Total' ELSE cast(SalesOrderID as nvarchar(10)) END as SalesOrderID, sum(LineTotal) FROM Sales.SalesOrderDetail where SalesOrderID in ( '43659', '43660', '43661', '43662', '43663' ) GROUP BY SalesOrderID WITH ROLLUP You can extend this even further...

Natural Language Processing in Python – Simple Example

NLP is a huge deal recently, and quite "easy" to do on a basic level within Python. In this exercise I completed, we'll show how to classify yelp reviews both with and without text pre-processing. Interesting to note that the pre-processing actually didn't help us here. Natural Language Processing Project - Simple ExampleIn this NLP project we will be attempting to classify Yelp Reviews into 1 star or 5 star categories based off the text content in the reviews. We will use the Yelp Review Data Set from Kaggle. Each observation in this dataset is a review of a particular business by a particular user. The "stars" column is the number of stars (1 through 5) assigned by the reviewer to the business. (Higher stars is better.) In other words, it is the rating of the business by the person who wrote the review. The "cool" column is the number of "cool" votes this review received from other Yelp users. All reviews start with 0 "cool"...

Search all tables and views for column name in SQL Server

Error Catching – Stored Procedure inside of SSIS

One fun thing I found out about SSIS is that is doesn't always error out a package if you execute stored procedures as SQL tasks instead of utilizing the SQL itself inside of the package. In other words - it may produce an error if you were to execute it in SSMS, but if you execute within SSIS it'll fly by successfully without you knowing anything went wrong. The best little trick I've found is to just surround the entire procedure with a Try/Catch block. This seems to raise the error up to SSIS and fails the package for you. CREATE PROCEDURE usp_TestProc as BEGIN TRY --SQL goes here... END TRY BEGIN CATCH PRINT 'Error ' + CONVERT(varchar(50), ERROR_NUMBER()) + ' at line ' + CONVERT(varchar(50), ERROR_LINE()) + ': ' + ERROR_MESSAGE(); END CATCH; GO ...
