Visualizing BigQuery data in a Jupyter notebook with SQL

BigQuery is a petabyte-scale analytics data warehouse that you can use to run SQL queries over vast amounts of data in near realtime. Data visualization tools can help you make sense of your BigQuery data and help you analyze the data interactively. You can use visualization tools to help you identify trends, respond to them, and make predictions using your data. In this tutorial, you use the BigQuery Python client library and Pandas in a Jupyter notebook to visualize data in the BigQuery natality sample table. SEND FEEDBACK BigQuery Visualizing BigQuery data in a Jupyter notebook Contents Objectives Costs Before you begin Setting … Continue reading Visualizing BigQuery data in a Jupyter notebook with SQL

A/B testing

The A/B test (also known as a randomised controlled trial, or RCT, in the other sciences) is a powerful tool for product development. some motivations: With the rise of digital marketing led by tools including Google Analytics, Google Adwords, and Facebook Ads, a key competitive advantage for businesses is using A/B testing to determine effects of digital marketing efforts. Why? In short, small changes can have big effects. This is why A/B testing is a huge benefit. A/B Testing enables us to determine whether changes in landing pages, popup forms, article titles, and other digital marketing decisions improve conversion rates … Continue reading A/B testing

Binomial Random Variables: Introduction

Binomial Random Variables So far, in our discussion about discrete random variables, we have been introduced to: The probability distribution, which tells us which values a variable takes, and how often it takes them. The mean of the random variable, which tells us the long-run average value that the random variable takes. The standard deviation of the random variable, which tells us a typical (or long-run average) distance between the mean of the random variable and the values it takes. We will now introduce a special class of discrete random variables that are very common, because as you’ll see, they … Continue reading Binomial Random Variables: Introduction

Introduction to Normal Random Variables: Overview

In the Exploratory Data Analysis sections of this course, we encountered data sets, such as lengths of human pregnancies, whose distributions naturally followed a symmetric unimodal bell shape, bulging in the middle and tapering off at the ends. Many variables, such as pregnancy lengths, shoe sizes, foot lengths, and other human physical characteristics exhibit these properties: symmetry indicates that the variable is just as likely to take a value a certain distance below its mean as it is to take a value that same distance above its mean; the bell-shape indicates that values closer to the mean are more likely, and it … Continue reading Introduction to Normal Random Variables: Overview

Predict prices using regression with ML.NET

Create a console application Create a .NET Core Console Application called “TaxiFarePrediction”. Create a directory named Data in your project to store the data set and model files. Install the Microsoft.ML NuGet Package:In Solution Explorer, right-click the project and select Manage NuGet Packages.

Hypothesis Testing: Introduction

We are now moving to the other kind of inference, hypothesis testing. We say that hypothesis testing is “the other kind” because, unlike the inferential methods we presented so far, where the goal was estimating the unknown parameter, the idea, logic and goal of hypothesis testing are quite different. In the first part of this section we will discuss the idea behind hypothesis testing, explain how it works, and introduce new terminology that emerges in this form of inference. The next two parts will be more specific and will discuss hypothesis testing for the population proportion (p), and for the population mean (μ). General … Continue reading Hypothesis Testing: Introduction

The Big Picture: Inference

Recall again the Big Picture, the four-step process that encompasses statistics: data production, exploratory data analysis, probability, and inference. We are about to start the fourth part of the process and the final section of this course, where we draw on principles learned in the other units (exploratory data analysis, producing data, and probability) in order to accomplish what has been our ultimate goal all along: use a sample to infer (or draw conclusions) about the population from which it was drawn. The specific form of inference called for depends on the type of variables involved—either a single categorical or quantitative … Continue reading The Big Picture: Inference
