Having to complete a 12-week placement with @marinescotland from Greece proved a challenge for Georgios After overcoming the challenges & enjoying the experience, remote working is now an asset on his CV: https://t.co/GT24Qx5BmG #datascience #data #studentexperience #msc

My @DataLabScotland placement experience with @marinescotland and @overchord & M. Machairopoulou during my studies has been nothing short of excellent, a great learning opportunity for me. Incredibly happy to see the sentiment is echoed by other @DataLabMsc students as well! https://t.co/02vtPgaa86

It is a fallacy to think that governments releasing all restrictions (ie lockdown measures) would make life normal or save the economy. Several states in the US & Brazil tried this & face not only illness but school closures, rising unemployment & pressure on health services.

conda environments with @ApacheArrow are quite large. I had a look at the "why?" and could reduce the size by roughly 50%: https://t.co/aMn0nZcu7o This has the nice side effect that of making basic python=3.8 conda environments also 36% smaller, benefitting the whole ecosystem.

Here is the dumb way I remember it: each has 2 N and 2 P. seNsitivity = true P / (true P + false N) sPecificity = true N / (true N + false P) See the NPPN and PNNP pattern?

I don’t know who needs to hear this, but: if you somehow developed the skills to do independent research before starting your PhD, then wow!! 💫 🦄 But I didn’t. So if you’re like me, then come to grad school, and we’ll train you to become an independent researcher. 👩‍🏫 👩‍🎓

When I started my PhD, 1 of my classmates had 1st author papers from undergrad in 2 of the top 5 journals in our field. I hadn’t even heard of those journals!!!! Today, he’s a tenured professor in a top-10 department, NSF CAREER awardee, etc. Guess what... I am too!! https://t.co/Kf0MfRInhu

The presenter puts up a slide showing “random forest variable importance.” You know the one... The sideways bar plot. Says “only showing the top 20 variables here...” to highlight the hi-dimensional power of random forests. The slide is awkwardly wide-screen. Everyone squints.

This went straight in to my happily ever-growing collection of thought-provoking and useful Twitter threads in the data science/ML field. Even if you know of the issue, the next steps bit at the end was very helpful to me. https://t.co/gjnwrSnUsv

Just in case it proves useful to someone else as well: After I ended up with a mountains of notes in different platforms and mediums, I'm trying BulletJournalling++ as detailed by @ksylor . Seems like I may be converting after all. Full details here: https://t.co/hFRs0hBYXa

Link. To. The. Paper. In. Your. Science. News. Articles. PLEASE. I'm begging you.

What people think data scientists say all the time: “We can use AI to solve this problem!” What data scientists actually say all the time: “No.” “We can’t do that.” “This isn’t magic.” “That’s not possible.” “We need better data.” “That’s a terrible idea.”

Magrittr 2.0 is coming soon and we need your help to test it! It has been rewritten in C to solve longstanding overhead issues and offers increased compatibility with the future pipe in base R. Details at https://t.co/dNcgwoRVm3

We are working on a new implementation of the pipe for the next magrittr release. It: 1) has cleaner backtraces 2) is much faster 3) works lazily Our analysis and testing suggest it should be a drop in replacement for >99.9% of code but we need your help testing it! #rstats https://t.co/2fVFvttsZD

There are 5,046 schools in Scotland. That's the tweet.

And where would we find a canonical list, with unique identifiers, as #opendata which we could link to catchment areas, SQA results, inspections etc? That's the tweet! #scotland #SODU2020 @opendata_sco https://t.co/GhOPKEP09C

Calling oceanographic, hydrodynamic, bio-physical modellers - there is a 2 year contract available @marinescotland deadline 21 Sept - take a look https://t.co/cZiwHpFvZB #oceanography

I just Googled "use filter in a pipe", and realized there is a world outside RStudio that interprets that search string VERY differently. #RStats #AcademicChatter
